Leaving

Just how Im feeling

LEAVING


I really just want to leave deep in my soul just go.
No stopping no thinking just go wherever my exhale
takes me.
I rarely exhale, breath held till I'm about to pass out.
Always waiting for the other shoe to drop, most of
the time it does.
Who am I kidding I'm tethered to every fear that keeps
me here, bound by the what if's the negative voices
be them my own or some one else's.
Tied up so tight I can barley breath feeling every single
cell and atom in this oh so tired body.
I just want to leave deep in my soul, just go maybe
someday , today its just not an option no matter my
desire for choice.

from breath to breath...inhale / exhale...that is life....holding breaths, waiting for the worst...that is hesitation...and we choke on that...we get too worried about conforming, about doing what are supposed to or about not getting hurt.

a little pain or a lot of pain...if we feel, we live...

that is the soul of life.

Very welcome:).
I love this poem Debbie! Of course, being the anally retentive old man that I am, I want to see punctuation marks in there. But that doesn't change the fact that this poem burns with dark and pleading emotions. This is one of my favorites of yours.

It is the best way to get away from the hardships of life, sometimes it's better to leave the things we love to let them be what they want to be than to fight for them, this life is already full of struggles so we must move on from it in order breath properly again... I loved the way you described your thoughts here and there is a sense of peace or longing for peace in your words...

Sincerely

Been a while since I saw a poem from you... so nice to see your words on my screen again... when we feel that life is suffocating us then letting go is the best way to find what makes you breathe.
