Silence becomes her...

Silence becomes her...

A Poem by shallimarRose
"

Just Mood writing....

"

Depression overcomes me

I fall once again into the abyss of silence

Sometimes pain of things unknown

Far worse then that which have been revealed

I want to write about it, about all of it..

I need to put down what the mind has erased

But I cannot even see, think or feel anything but blank

Dead scroll memories buried deep within taunt me

Subconsciousness that lingers just below the surface

Praying for a life preserver to pull me up

where I can once again breathe the air of truth

Oh to only quiet this deafening silence of a broken soul

For one dark memory seeds another and yet another

Until that is all my mind will allow

Thoughts like vandals desecrate my sanity

Time does not reveal that which is hidden deep within

And of what would revelations prove anyway?

I find myself prisoner to memories I cannot even recall

Strange how the flashes come in the dark spaces between

I long to be free and feel the sunlight on my face once more..

I have been to this place and it is hard to escape from this twilight life:

Time does not reveal that which is hidden deep within
And of what would revelations prove anyway?
I find myself prisoner to memories I cannot even recall
Strange how the flashes come in the dark spaces between
I long to be free and feel the sunlight on my face once more..

Gorgeous voice you've got. Loved the guitar work too. We're all holding on.

I love this hrart touching writing...
"unknown
Far worse then that which have been revealed
I want to write about it, about all of it.."

" I cannot even see, think or feel anything but blank
Dead scroll memories buried deep within taunt me
Subconsciousness that lingers just below the surface
Praying for a life preserver to pull me up"
I find myself prisoner to memories I cannot even recall"
And last sentence
"I long to be free and feel the sunlight on my face once more.."

Very expressive emotions , even I'm undergone this emotions and depression...

Of all the poems I have read of yours so far this one touched my heart like none other.
It is sad. It is melancholic.
It is the eternal melody that sings to your heart when solitude shrouds your soul.
Beautiful and mesmerizing.
keep it up!

Thank you Jacob for taking the time.. sR
how intriguing is that place between .... the subconscious mind peaks through and awakens us with only feelings and vague impressions left ... we become irresistibly drawn to try to understand only to drift back under ... tentacles pierce through from all the dark places ... it can drive one mad ..

It's completely okay, I totally understand. Thank you.
You certainly have set a mood with this poem Shallimar .. a dark and brooding one .. and of course I love it. It may seem hard for some to know or understand this. "blankness " but it exists in silence and you express this with images and poetry. ~~redzone

Well hello there my long lost friend. Very dark today but extremely well written. I loved the line, "Thoughts like vandals desecrate my sanity". Indeed . thoughts can ceratinly do that to a person. Very nice my friend.
