Moggy's Mutterings - 11. Darkness and Sleep

1.
I am tired.
The bone wearyness that comes from years of holding on.
The mental exhaustion the comes from months of playing happy.
The soul crushing decades of no relief.

 

2.
I stand at the edge, looking into the abyss.
The darkness waits.
To take that step into the healing darkness.
Release my body of its brokenness,
to free my mind and soul of its pain.
Would be so easy, but You hold me here.

 

3.
A mind restless beyond sleep,
a body wracked with pain,
sleep I fear is a distance memory.
As a child I fought you so hard.
Now, I’d welcome your embrace.
Sleep- that wonderful place where the body renews,
and the soul whispers to the heart,
“its ok, tomorrow we try again”

 

4.
Dreams-
the place where all those things you hoped for, and forgot,
come alive and scream at you.
No wonder so many have trouble sleeping.

 

5.
To learn some lessons of life, one must suffer.
even in sleep, the pain that can't forget.
It falls, drop by drop upon the mind and heart.
And in our despair, and against our will, comes wisdom

I hate to 'like' these because they verbalize a great deal of pain, both mental and physical, but i did 'like' them because you conveyed that pain so effectively in each of these poems.  

 

My my favorite line, I think, is "and the soul whispers to the heart, “its ok, tomorrow we try again”."

So, so powerful, moggy. You broke my heart, and yet you made me think of my mother's embrace, and how much I could use one of her hugs, so thank you for that. Each one is brilliant in its misery... so honest and evocative. I hope you are okay. I know how much writing the words can help. Thank you for leaving us with number 5... it helped give some balance after all the pain. It belonged after "Dreams," and yeah each hurt teaches us something... maybe not right away, but eventually :hug: ... Gary xo

thanks gary. that was one reaction i didn't see coming.:hug:when i write and then share, i'm releasing the negatives in my thinking to the universe, that way the positivity  of the universe can fill that space left behind.
