Striving For Relief

Striving For Relief prose poem

We sat there in silence
listening to the sound of each others broken heart beat.
We did not look each other in the eye at least once.
We did not touch.
We simply just tasted our tears.
We released our anger silently like a gentle rain.
Only our emotions felt each other.
Only our walls could see each other.
Nothing could save us. Nothing could fix us.
We were meant to be the way we were.
Withered away and so puzzled on why it all ended up like this.
Chemicals will heal the wound for a moment.
It will help us mend the damaged just for a night.
It will help us get carried away into something else,
ignoring all that was going on inside our heads.
It will help us lose it all.
If we don’t know how to control, it will help us fail.
It won’t help us find the missing pieces to begin the closure.
We just need to finalize this worn out ending.
All this quiet madness inside my chest is getting the best of me.
Everything we created is overpowering our souls.

I once was walking in the dark , I thought I was living the life. Thank goodness for Rehab. They started to set thing right, It was there I found The Lord and and saw the Light. Now these poems I started to see and hear. When they come in sight I write. Thank You LORD. Now all the other, the past is, how they put it. Just water under the bridge. GONE. Never to return. Now I am Just a laid back kind of girl, Who's about to spread her wings and fly away to a brighter day.

@Alicia_Alicia admirable piece of writing, prose poetry that still retains its sense of lyrical form is so rare to find and yet you have managed to do just that. Also the simplicity of the words that convey so much angst and helplessness is greatly appreciated. Keep writing!
