What I Feel

[Poetry (General--not Contest)]
 
What I Feel

I’ve been stupid, I’ve made mistakes
More in my life than one would guess
Yet I remain true to those I love
So as not to cripple my chance to express
Just what I feel…

Technology has brought us closer
They say it’s connected us all
But I see the smaller picture here
How it’s destroyed, how it’s mauled
Just what I feel…

So many things working against us
Those things aching to take us apart
It’s like fighting an intangible army
Lusting for blood, but with no heart
But it’s just what I feel…

I can’t force my way through this mire
It saps my strength and crushes my will
If I could reach past all these so solid walls
Hold you tight and fight this killing chill
I would hold you so warm and still
Because it’s just what I feel…

And what I feel is a heart that’s torn
A heart in pieces thrown askew
But I don’t know the way to mend it
I can only watch it bleed through
It’s just what I feel…
It’s just what I feel…
It’s just what I feel…

I pray that soon all feeling will stop
This depth of loss unknown before
I pray that soon all feeling will stop
And I won’t feel anything anymore
Just stop what I feel…
Just stop what I feel…
Just stop what I feel…

So this life will feel no more.

I am a fan of all your writing. Such depth of "feeling" in everything you add.
