Stop Touching Each Hurt

Stop Touching Each Hurt

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

I heard silence in the cobwebs of your soul............

"





















I heard silence in the cobwebs
of your soul
while everything else walked
as if lost
inside of the belief
that all you see is black and white.
Then, I watched you crawl in search of truth
among faces with eyes
that held the illusion of everything
you think you want in life.

Your fingertips seem to know more
about your emotions
than your tears do
because you touch each hurt
your heart mentions
until they bleed.
I watch you pause,
and look over your shoulder
for yesterday
almost as if you wish
it would never leave.

I wonder if you will ever learn
how simple
the feel of your own skin
could be
if you would just not let anger write its name
on your walls carelessly.
Perhaps then, you could see the sunlight
of a brand new day
and accept the shades of gray
that color me.

Like the use of the words here. Never let anger get in the way. It will get no one anywhere. Love these lines: heard silence in the cobwebs of your soul... I watch you pause, and look over your shoulder for yesterday almost as if you wish it would never leave. Great poem!

Loved it. Another wonderful poem Neva about what holding on to hurt and anger does ot ones self. It causes use to open and dwell in old wounds that should have healed a long time ago. When we learn to let go we feel light and free and can move on and love those who truly love us. Beautifully penned as always.

I love the symbolism in your choice of ink color, changing from light grey to black, as your words speak of cobwebs and illusions, and end in the substance of one's skin, and walls. Simply beautiful!

This has to be one of your best pieces of work Neva, love...no boundaries, no apologies in the process...by them understanding, they grant yourself a little piece of recognition back...this weaved me onto a shore I am not sure footed on but only because the clouds are brooding - waiting for the sunshine to peek through after such realisation xoxo
