If you would tell me if this poem evokes emotions or what thoughts rise within? Are you able to relate? And if you are willing, in what way. Thank You. God Bless
Like a punch to the gut My breath is gone Out of the blue Into pitch black Without a whisper Without a signal You disappeared Don’t blink, I say Don’t close your eyes For those seconds Will change your life A snap of your fingers The crack of a whip It is gone forever And it is never coming back Don’t you want to scream ‘Stop’ all this spinning I am getting so dizzy And I want to get off Where is the button To put the world on pause I don’t want to miss anything But I am not sure I can go on Does anybody hear me Hear my thoughts cry out In silent desperation For crying out loud Beyond a shadow of doubt Will you catch me Because I’m falling fast Into the void Into the pitch black Out of the blue There is no coming back.

I held out my hand true Tempted to believe That the leverage might be enough for you Knowing all along, I am naive I always hope for skies of blue But that hope is often deceived As you were so dead set to prove My eyes could hardly believe The tantrums that you threw How you screamed and stomped your feet Like a child with the terrible two’s With an incessant need As a child that just left the womb Your presence made it hard to breathe While the Chaos of your shadow loomed Your years numbered thirty three darkness of impending doom From your every pore it seeped More and more I withdrew As regret enveloped me Facing the fact I already knew The one that I deceived, was yours truly.
