Unbreakable Vine

Unbreakable Vine

A Poem by Kristen

Recent decisions and isolation have bound me, and I finally managed to translate it into poetry. Enjoy.


My heart would think for me,

If the decision was kept mine.

Chords of distress, thoughts of solitude

Tangle me up in a binding vine.


Nobody is my savior,

I am left on my own.

The opinions, the thoughts of superiority

Turn into an eternal drone.


Let me be, set me free,

My heart craves to cry.

As the windows of life creak shut, thinking of you, 

I see through your last pathetic lie.


The vine of distress holds me tighter,

My breath commences to cease.

I didn’t want it to control me, I never wanted this

To be my pathway into everlasting peace.


My heart would think for me,

If the decision was kept mine.

Chords of distress, thoughts of solitude,

Tangled me up in an unbreakable vine.

I Like IT

I could hear your voice crying out in this poem to me as I was reading it. This poem is so full of emotion. I enjoyed it. This poem crys out for help and never gives up to anyone. I think that is powerful as every person who reads it will feel attached to the poem as the poet needs help.

Nicely written. The piece flows out sort of like vines would when reaching to that area not seen. Looking for light looking for answers. Needing help. Keep reaching and keep writing soon it will all be clear.

Written heart achingly emotional.
I love the repetition and emotion conveyed
in the lines that begin with 'My'.
Those lines stand out for me.
And I also loved the way the last three stanzas
almost bleed or breathe into one another.
This is wonderful and your strongest poem in my opinion.

This is a real good piece, I enjoyed it very much. Keep up the good writing. I take from this piece that your heart wouldn't let someone go, that you needed to let go.
