'Glimpse of our Story’

Swirling thoughts and emotions

When it feels like life is spinning out of control

I can see you smile, but your eyes tell a different story

It would be so much easier; only if there was a cure for worry


I know how you feel

You get hurt, you say these words

You flip out

Anger is your only way out...


anger, fear, hurt and pain act as a shield

when mind turns into a battlefield

every mistake

real or fake...


leads you in a desperate

attempt to retrieve

you and I, we both know

some things, we just can’t let go...


divine wounds can’t be healed

empty places can’t ever be filled

like a fog in the clarity

this gives birth to insecurity...


as you dig deeper

behind every layer

our past, our history, our perception of reality

shows us a ‘Glimpse of our Story'

I love the lyrical, song-like quality of this poem. And it is so perceptive about the pain that lies so close to the surface in all of us.

"Only if there was a cure for worry"
So true. I really can relate to this poem. I think it is really good. I like your play on words and I think that there are a lot of messages that we can all take away from this one! Thanks for writing!

Yeah, I agree with capolavoro. I like how the mystery crawls at your poetry. But lacking more impact for me, though. Like saying the right words at the right time. Well, that's for me, though. ^^, Keep writing! :)
