Middle Ground

Middle Ground

A Poem by Morgane Soustre

Middle Ground


There was a time, 
A time, where limits were crossed.
A time of excess.
Overabundance of guilt,
Overabundance of disgust,
Overabundance of hopelessness.

A time of pain.
Sharp.
A torture, a blow,
Down to the deepest core of my soul.
Suffering that I, can only control.

No more regrets.
No more sorrows.
Only strength.
A place to get better.
A middle ground to find.

Hello Morgane (beautiful name), my first question is whether or not you intended for the middle stanza to rhyme? I like the raw confessional sense to this work and the message of compromising with one's self. An enjoyable read, well done.

I like this piece, as it is honest, and portrays the suffering human condition well in the first few lines. And then goes on to a positive ending, with hope and strength for the future....I liked the title "Middle Ground" too....a good place to be.
Thanks for sharing.

Cool poem, I like what your searching for. My only suggestion is to be aware of when you repeat words and line constructions.

Superbly written in a language foreign to you .. expansive, intense, emotional and beautiful in its own way. Thank you so much for sharing.

No more regrets.
No more sorrows.
Only strength.
A place to get better.
A middle ground to find.

Very beautiful phrase. I love this. Yeah! Now a days the crime's been so uplifted the people're going away from the world of peace, from the place of humanity at all .. but your this piece makes us force to remind that time where there were no fights, no regrets, not hurt but only love in the heart and so on .. where people lived with love and peace at all. I love this piece, you've a very nice thinking to write. The theme's very good and i adore this poem. Nice work!
