BROKEN OPEN

BROKEN OPEN

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

Change...some things never change, some things always change.

"
BROKEN OPEN

Broken open from within me,
Come relentless winds of change.
For the purpose left remaining,
Things of love to rearrange.

Chilling words be-sit the pages,
Offering their purchased alms.
Yet a darkness from the window,
Brings no thought of healing balms.

Standing in the seated chambers,
Restless to begin again...
Looking for a thought of meaning,
Squeezing fractured sunlight in.

There remains a dirge unending,
'Neath these flowing, salted tears.
Searching, seeking ever tweaking
Through the crumpled wilted years.

Change can be so difficult to deal with especially when it comes to moving on in relationships. Whether it is as a result of a breakup or even death, it is painful and brings much sadness. It certainly has the ability to block out the sunlight. Your lines are beautifully conveyed in rhyme and meter Sharon and convey such deep feeling. Well done.

'BROKEN OPEN'
Miss Sharon,
This is a piece which gives the feeling of standing where sitting may of been the norm.
Waiting to act, waiting to receive and give a new thought to oneself of what was but
must be the foundation for something new. Words inscription the doorway to what is
to come within a time of mourning to begin to live again. Beautiful. I really liked this one.
To learn and to begin and build the future is just alright with me!
Blessings,
Kathy

Very nice!
Has the sound of one who is a veteran of the relationship wars and now wants a fresh start. But there is something within that seems to stand in the way, perhaps unhealed wounds from the past. The last verse indicates the damage may be too great to overcome. Sometimes love hurts too much.

They always say get it down, get it out. Easier said than done mind you.
Some change is forced upon you, some you make yourself, but I think you're right, nothing really changes.

Thank you so much for your very kind review of this write! ~Sharon
such a deep sadness that all the writing in the world cannot free...but the speaker wills herself to write on in hopes that somehow the dam will break enough to let all the words that are needed, flow.

well done Ms. Sharon! strong metaphor of within the chambers of heart and mind ... how we do break :( i especially appreciate that you include "Chilling words be-sit the pages" .. so much healing can come from putting it down .. getting it out :) the lilting rhythm and natural rhymes make this a keeper says i .. with a theme eternal and ever relevant ... the sadness of your speaker is tripled in those years gone by and still little reprieve nor respite ... so sad .. so powerfully emotive for me .. nice one!

Like humans and sunrise - keep changing and never changes!
I loved reading the third stanza most among the four beautiful ones. How badly we carve to start all over again to be over the gloom!
Thanks for sharing this Sharon, loved reading♡
