Home, resting place of my soul

Exiled from you, in frigid cold

Alll I will give, to be with you again

Lest I, poor mortal, be driven insane


I screamed in agony, in longing, in love

Heart torn to half, I would deserve

Blinded myself, today, I do

Wondering if you long for me too


Drew a circle of blood and bones

Slit my wrists, these hands I honed

With mine ears, could hear your voice

What do I had, no other choice


I drank these bitter tears 

Engulfted and torn in fear

See you not, my lovely home

Would I just die here, alone?


In the end, I bid farewell

Your warmth, I still can tell

Feeling weak, I close my eyes

My hearth, my home... goodbye.

The poems you write are filled with dark pain. It continues to remind me of my old poetic buddy on here, Ian Dawn. He was great at painting his feelings dark, but you left knowing that he had created a release for both himself and the reader simply by his choices of words. You are matching him pound for pound. I have learned a bit about different poets on this site through my years on here. There are categories many can fit in. Few express feelings mixed with passion in a dark twist, however. You are one of two that pulls this off. You take your reader directly to your feelings. You enable us to feel with you. Awesome piece my friend of the pen. Your words speak pain, but I see a great soul peeking out from underneath the layers of words.

A sincere thank you for this feedback, Stokesboy. I'm glad that I was able to relate to your feelings through this poem. Sometime ago I used to be having these kinds of feelings too, and I can say that they really have inspired dark thoughts and emotions within me. Through the support of those around me have I conquer this fear and emerge even stronger than before. I hope that you will be able to find the ray of light at the end of the dark tunnel too! :)
