A Poem by Alisa Js

so, if I remain another 10,000 years
would we be any different then?
how much lemonade is there to prepare
when I ran out years ago?

the pleasure of details
falls flat when it's only one hand
lifetime commitment reduces to
delusional chatter
when culprits point fingers and run

at what point does it reduce abuse
when constant anger prevails
you have everything to live for
everything to gain,
nothing to lose
and still you complain

years have passed, a decade now
life goes on
and I'm still here, putting out fires
with nothing more than an empty pail
inside all this endless roar
here in my head
in the still of the night
when all should be quiet

this is sheer madness
time to break free,
before this becomes
the end of what was once me...

Time to break free, before this becomes tragically the end of what was once me.... very honest observation of a relationship that is taking a toll on one person. Beautifully put in to words. That is usually the reason for self preservation too!

We want to be so strong and hold on to that promise we made so long ago. If only for ourselves, our pride, yet sometimes when they aren't keeping their end of the bargain why should we?

Always and with Love

You are welcome

Like the background hum of the Universe - like tinnitus - like the sound of the Earth turning there may be no respite from the source or the reaction to it but to be able to turn that 'affliction' into art speaks volumes of this human spirit.
Excellent piece Alisa - great flow my friend.
