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!

I was completely taken away by these lines:
"Your fingertips seem to know more
about your emotions
than your tears do
because you touch each hurt
your heart mentions
until they bleed"

This is a creation that can't be reviewed but to be felt. Thanks.....a million

Wonderful last stanza. The word "accept" is key in this poem.

Thank you Hayley, I agree ;)
I like this a lot, when i saw the RR i thought by the title that this would be a deeply painful situation for me to read.. as i know all too well about others pecking at the things we want to keep silent.. but after reading through i realized, i dont have to keep silent, or worry about others questioning my thoughts or feelings, (: Epic write -s

A thought-provoking and stunning piece as always. If we could just learn to let go of anger and negative emotions that life seems to bring I think our eyes would be a little more open. Beautiful write.

Neva is as Neva always has been and I suspect will always be, a great writer of thoughts and understanding of feelings. You have touched upon a subject that is very close to me at this moment, and may cause me to reflect more upon the choices I have made, not only for myself, but for others who touch me and may have an even deeper understanding of your words. Thank you. :)
