Dented Saint


Dented Saint

 

In chasing shadows

a crushing of anxiety

a building of uncertainty

the only certainty-

-are the pains that will have to be endured

 

their hurt will be without end

their suffering without end

their peace will be crushed down to fragments

their resolve will be broken

no worry

 

…..parts of you will be taken as well  

 

gradual building of giants

small things with exaggerated shadows

elongated phantom forms

magnified sounds and imagined torments

 

the enormity

of our burdens

overwhelms

 

your pain

 

but

 

my empathy

 

I see no other choice

 

but to carry……

 

 

truth be, I would know no other way

  1. very heartfelt write ….

  2. there is always a certain bravery to speaking out……too often we make our own hells, Len. when first got on the internet i realized complaining was my favorite sport. unfortunately that only attracts other problem solvers. for the record i don’t believe in eternal pain, but wherever you go there you are…..biggest challenge is to give ourselves a break.
