A Poem by Ethale Captor

A poem for someone dear to me.


My hands are shaking

My heart is breaking

My mind is taking

Far too long to comprehend

That I will see you again

When you leave

My soul grieves

My mind cleaves

Another piece of

My sanity

I wonder why

I want to cry

Feel like I’ll die

If I can’t remember your face

Or the scent of you in this place

My body is ticking

My condition sickening

My conscience reckoning

That this is not a way

To live from day to day

Panic and addiction

Becomes my conviction

Poisoning my diction

As I scream out your name

Wreathed with the pain

Shed a frantic tear

Unable to adhere

To my right mind

Knowing you can’t hear

Me screaming for you

My body and mind

Are sensitive to

Even the smallest of whispers

That come from you

Every touch driving me insane

Is it all too much

Or just not enough

Is this the right thing

Or not what I need

I want to know you completely

My desperation

And sensation

Are running together

Forcing me to follow you

From now past forever

the desperation you wrote in this matches the title. That's what's great about poetry, you can turn serious heartbreak into something other people can read and relate to.

I can almost see everything in slow motion great rhythm. Sounds very emotional but beautiful at the same time. Very creative!
