Release Me

Release Me

A Poem by Sarah Marie

I am drowning  in a sea
Of other people’s desires,
The current of selfishness
Only traveling their way;
And not one seems willing
To swim out and meet me halfway-
I too have needs and wants,
Yet mine are pulling me down
Far from the shore with the tide.
I am burning in a fire
Lit by needless passions
For the most foolish things,
By great tempers and short-lived anger,
Burning in emotions
Not my own;
Yet none seem to even care
To stifle these engulfing flames.
Does no one hear my whispers,
And does no one try
To make out my heart’s cry?
Will not a soul
Release my own?

This is brilliant work, all the way I felt like I am reading what my mind has written for me. :) A silent complain with a happy smile on face, one can pretend but doesn't want to 'cause that will blend him/her with others.
Keep Writing and keep sharing my friend,
your words contain deep meanings and innocent emotions.

Your words are a cry that echoes in the shadows. A heart that has been undone.. neglected and alone. Your poetry aches for sweet release; may it come in blissful abundance.

I think many of us feel this way sometimes...sometimes we have to re-arrange our priorities in life for sure.

This is such a beautiful piece. I love the meaning, and how you conveyed such a thing with words has left me truly envious once again. You have a great talent.
