To A Place In My Head...

My lips are sewn shut
with my own tiny thread
My jaw clenched tightly
Out of fear and of dread
Of what might come flowing
Through those angry lips
Spewing words of hatred, hurt and neglect
I wish I could go
to a place in my head
Where all of my pain and anger had fled
I need an escape from these binding emotions
I need an island with it's own “little ocean.”

I felt this when I read it. You may not consider this poetry, but you have an exceptional talent. Well done.

Awh Thanks urfierycenter :) It's funny tho, nothing really comes to mind to write when I am happy? Must be one of those tortured souls LOL!

We all need our little islands of peace. Places to go when things become worrisome. You are not alone in feeling this way.

Thanks Auspicious ;) I'm sure we all do!

One of the most beautiful things I have ever read but an element of sadness too... I feel your pain, your frustration and I SO wish it would just f!$& off and leave you alone. You're a wonderful woman.<br />

Thank you 36, I understand what you mean, me too ;)

Very well written and desc<x>riptive piece. I hope that you have recovered and bless us with more of your thoughts and emotions.

Thank You Eastsaxon, I appreciate it ;)

Poetry does not have to follow rules. It just needs to express insight or emotion in an artful way. I like it.

Why Thank you :)

That is Beautiful, You have a great way with words..Its rare that I read poety I like, but that is wonderful, I have always expressed myself visually through my art and photography, terrable with words.

Thank you, I don't really consider it poetry because I don't know the "rules" of how to write, I just write down what I am feeling. I love photography; It is hard to capture, to be unique; different, you must be good :)

Most of the stuff I write is just in a moment of despair, It usually passes quickly :) I let go of things pretty quickly. But thanks guys for your support :) it means a lot to me.

That is great you recognize what your feeling and let it out and go quickly, that is a very heathly way
