At Times

At Times

A Poem by TopHatGirl
"

Condolences to the empty shell without a mate.

"

I am without feelings, at times.

The words cut out from me,

leaving throats closed,

feelings lost,

eyes shut.

At times,

there are ways for me to speak,

and when I do speak, it is in hatred.

I am bitter, not have tasted sweet in years.

Thoughts are black, and I wear them,

proud and willing,

not flinching to enforce it on the word.

I do not get pleasure from insults,

I get it from results,

the rehabilitation.

It gets hard, at times.

To keep stable, to keep from

sinking.

There's never been something

to hold up the world

for me. Open the door,

for me.

I found that something,

when I spoke,

not in hatred,

but in revelations.

At times,

I have found solace

in the rhythms of an

emotion,

and the fragility of a

feeling.

To that comfort,

I plead it to

never leave,

and I continue to

beg, even

when it left.

At times, I am alone.

At those times,

I can no longer keep my eyes

open.

I have not left WC, I just have not had any good inspiration for prose. When prose can't come, I turn to "deep" poetry that is really just made up shit.

I love those lines! I seriously thought this poem was awesome. Whether or not it's made up, it had deep, powerful emotion and it was just great. This poem is creative and smart and something just makes me think it wasn't made up. It seems so real. Like it really did come from your heart. Well, fantastic job! ;) Keep on writing!

yes, i'd say this is very deep. Writing is about everything, like most art. Making s**t up is creating and creating comes from deep reaches even we are not that familiar with. Writing is a medium, a device of expression, the more you use it, the better, clearer and stronger your expressions become, whether made up or not.

You may make it up, but that doesn't mean it lacks quality. I for one, enjoyed it.

I especially like the part 'I do not get pleasure from insults, I get it from results'. This is a very powerful poem. Keep up the creativity!
