It should be easy

It should be easy

A Poem by Amber Smith

A new soul that heals
This once again dark void
Extinguishing it all
Making the pieces whole

But the dosage is too strong
Its terrifying
The feelings too deep, Too real
Soul trembling concrete

I've found it, its genuine
The "it" others search endlessly for
I've got my fairy tale
So where is the happy ending

Joy just brings fear
How long until it happens again
Slowly deteriorating 
Reaching for the self-detruct

Easy and yet grueling
Why was pain effortless
It is expected
How do I live in simple bliss

It seems life sometimes brings these unfortunate happenings in our lives at times. Sometimes our standards should be set higher. Sometimes it's about waiting and seeing what kind of fruit that the tree shall bear. Self-discipline is one of the hardest traits to master, yet we should always be in pursuit of it.

I think you did a great job in projecting the expressions in this piece!!!

The second to last stanza reminded me of a disorder called 'cherophobia' whose primary defining characteristic is an aversion to happiness due to feeling that being happy always eventually provokes bad things. Which is kind of true, everything does decay and die eventually... even happiness. It's not a good idea to avoid happiness because of that though. Sadness is just as natural and necessary as happiness... happiness would be meaningless without at least the potential for sadness to help define it.

Gosh – this really made me think of the REM song Everybody Hurts and in particular these lyrics;

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on.
Don't let yourself go, everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

Sadly poignant, but great write … :-)

it takes pain to really enjoy peace of mind and love,we have no guarantees in life or love
but we can`t be afraid to try again,we would never find true love if we did...

I believe we need to be fearless. Gain or lost in love or life. Make us know and understand we have lived. I liked the thoughts and the journey in the words. We need bliss and a lot of laughter Amber. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

A very emotive, soulful piece of writing...you can feel the beauty of your heart in this, beating like waves on tomorrow’s shore hoping for better but not hoping blindly but forlornly and elegantly. Wonderful :)

Well, I'm a huge fan. Don't be a stranger.
I can relate to your message so much! I used to think an attraction wasn't good enuf unless it was intense, like an addiction. Now I avoid such drama & go for the simple bliss (much harder to find, but worth the wait)! Your writing is full of originality, even tho you're conveying a familiar idea (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I just enjoy writing. Don't care to much about the criticism. Writing should be about storytelling and the feeling it gives you as you write and create. more..
