Random November Poetry Selection

~ My head spins
My body in ruins
My knees hit the tile floor
Will it end soon?

The poison in my veins
It runs wild and free
I need an antidote
I need to be SEEN

Oh the tender body
So prone to bends and breaks
Let me acquire wisdom
Let this not be a mistake

If I had wishes
I'd save them for a rainy day
Who am I to change anything?
Who am I to say?~

~ Annie Martin (2010)

Difficult to change these painful weeks into poetry and yet you have succeeded....

Healing energy comes to find and help you see your way to clarity, Annie, peace.

You are SEEN here lovely Annie.

So beautifully written. But such a sad place of conception.

Love and energy to you...xx

This is beautiful Annie! Well done :)

The image it gives isn't a beautiful one, I meant that the poem itself is beautifully done as it definitely creates an emotional response within the reader.
