Fisherman's String

Fisherman's String

A Poem by Annie Wilthew

You leave me waiting
Hanging in the yawning air
My fingers clutch to Fisherman's String
Such a thin thread
Yet such a strong tie
It restricts circulation for anyone...
My heart only beats for you.

I want to swing to the cliff side
And clench my parched roots into
The sanctuary of rational earth.

Whether hanging here is heaven or hell
I do not know,
For the thought of you 
Flying down to rescue me
Convinces my mind of heaven.
Yet the sensation of slicing cuts
From Fisherman's String
Wrenches me into the circling wheel
Of dead and undead hell.

Whether you exist or not
I know something placed me here.
It must have started from you.
You must have looked at me 
And burned my love into being.
You must have breathed on me...
It must have swept me off the edge 
And left me hanging 
On Fisherman's String.

Lovely poem Annie, I especially enjoyed the following.

"Whether you exist or not
I know something placed me here.
It must have started from you.
You must have looked at me
And burned my love into being.
You must have breathed on me..."

Beautiful words and thoughts.

I am so happy you liked it!
Sorrow I once knew when I cried into a my pillow. Well done. When written in a matter of minutes we're moved by spirit. To me, it's not so much a thought, it's a whisper we hear in our heart.
