Comfort Show

A Poem by Alicia Hirshey

Comfort disclosed
Pills in hand
Nightly dose
To keep my friends
Earnestly helpful
Binding time
Trying my best
Shattering rhymes
~*~
Hurt, pain
Left in the past
Forgiveness, fame
Go hand in hand
Let the words come out
We know the truth
And the lies that you spout
~*~
I won't run from pain
I'll stand
I've worked through alike
I managed differently
Then you would have liked
I called some names
Refuse to justify
You would have reacted
If you shared the plight
~*~
Whispers of friendship
A trail long past
I refuse to say
I wished it would last
I said what I said
You did what you done
In the end
It can't be undone
~*~
Call me insane
I got pills to fix that
Play the blame game
Well there are more
pointing back
Stand in the mirror
Do you like what you see?
Do you honestly think
You were fooling me?
~*~
I've turned it on paper
With my pen that bleeds pink
My only friend
It doesn't judge me
Biting my tongue
Is a burden I bare
Better to write it
That let innocent
Catch my glare
~*~
Comfort disclosed
Pills in hand
Nightly dose
To keep my friends
Earnestly helpful
Binding time
Trying my best
Shattering rhymes

Author's Note

Alicia Hirshey
"We attach our feelings to the moment when we were hurt, endowing it with immortality. And we let it assault us every time it comes to mind. It travels with us, sleeps with us, hovers over us while we make love, and broods over us while we die. Our hate does not even have the decency to die when those we hate die--for it is a parasite sucking OUR blood, not theirs. There is only one remedy for it. [forgiveness]

Lewis B. Smedes - Forgive & Forget: Healing the Hurts We Don't Deserve

Sad, but beautiful.
The pills in hand line gives a reality touch. :)

To forgive and not regret the choices that we make is a learned talent.You have mastered that in this piece of work.Well done.

I loved it Ella. The quote from Smedes is very appropriate, and very true. Hatred and resentment aren't things we need to hold onto, for nothing is ever gained by having them, but everything can be the better for curing them through forgiveness. I know that my own story might not relate the best, but here it is.

There was a guy I played some games with, he was my guild leader, and we were relatively good friends. We got in an argument one night, a lot of things were said, and we didn't speak for three years. One day, I had a wild hair crawl so I looked him up and sent him a message talking about burying the hatchet and leaving the past behind. We left the anger behind, and have been the best buds ever since. We gained nothing by being resentful at each other, but we gained everything from forgiving the past.

I like the author's note you have accompanied this piece. Hate is a parasite which is why it is so hard to let go when someone tries to push our buttons. It just clings and festers and grows.

I love this, it describes so much pain and regret, with much loneliness. You have much talent...also, I love the quotes you pieced in this.

Silence is most certainly the loudest cry... I've been there...attempted that... and I'm so happy to be here today... able now to be silent without the inner screams.. An excellent write..xxx
