Clutching, Breathing

A Poem By Elizabeth // 7/2/2010

 
 

Burning heart, piercing truth
      Grace,
           Groping……
Tears slide down, swells the embrace
        Courage,
              Clutching……
Wrenched apart, iron forged between
          Resolute,
                Reeling…….
Bars torment, numbness dulling
         Peace,
                 Pleading…...
Chains pulling, sunlight fingering
          Surmount,
                   Slipping……
Limbs weary, soul silently waiting
          Bravery,
                  Blenching……
 
 
Beating, Beating….
 
Breathing, Breathing…. death
 
 
Stillness, Stillness…..
 
Silence, Silence…… life
