Nothing More

Nothing More

A Poem by Theresa


I want to smile

But I can't

I'm being held a prisoner

Shackled to this hell

Resistance is no longer of existence

My world no longer mine

Overtaken by misery

To defenseless to fight

I long for days

When happy was defined

Where sunshine filled my life

Smiles came effortlessly

My life full of joy

Those days seem to be gone

Never making a return

My heartaches at the thought

Wishing for a chance

A chance of better days

Because there is nothing I want more

I want to smile

I know every breath this living composition is speaking and how it feels to receive these often-thought unwelcome gifts; but the hope and persistence of own desires, in search of happiness, peace...stamps a signature of joy and a soul made of solitude and faith! A terrific write Theresa!

Sometime we can be overcome with sadness. Need to toss the sadness away. Never allow the people that hurt you know they won. Sadness and desire to find joy again in your words. A excellent poem.

I think this poem really defies the situation when people become tired of being uphappy. Longing for change, but stuck in the cycle all the same. Loved how expressive you were. Really touched my heart, making me recall memories....thanks for sharing. =]

Wow this is very heartfelt piece.

"I long for days
When happy was defined
Where sunshine filled my life
Smiles came effortlessly."

That's my favorite part. Longing to be happy again. Everyone's been in this position.
Wow very good piece! Thanks for sharing!

Been there, felt that misery, still fight it on occasion.
The beauty is, if you open your eyes, the sun will shine come morning!!

Always remember your blessings...even when it seems there are none to be had!

So who is stopping you It takes far fwer muscles to smile than to frown.
Paste on a smile to fool the world and you fool yourself as well
Enjoyed the read presented flowing free form
