    A Shattered Soul Remains

    Searching for answers that can't be found
    My breath catches in my throat
    This feeling drags me deeper
    Into the abyss I go.
    I let it take me.
    To weak to fight
    Into the darkness
    Into the pain
    Look what you've done to me?
    A shattered soul remains
    You inch forward
    I inch backward
    No more will this soul be yours
    Locked up tight is where it will stay
    So I dust off a treasure chest
    And store away the broken pieces of my soul.
    A silent oath whispers within the shadows.
    “No more, no more”
    So it shall be and so it was.
    “Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light.”
    -Joseph Pulitzer

    Margaret, why do I always see a wry smile in you when I see your work.

    Ok, this would stand on any poetry site, but if you are searching for answers that can't be found... well, yano' And thats just the first line. I know you are a good person, and pretty god-damn clever I should say.

    Having said what I have said, I have indeed read this a good few times, so job done on your behalf.

    Thanks Margaret

    Aww, well thank you Martin.You are right again, I am both a good person and very clever indeed.

    "Margaret, why do I always see a wry smile in you when I see your work. " - I am not sure why. It just shows how smart you are I guess. lol So you must be a very smart man.

    Glad you liked the poem.

    Margaret-

    My fav line: "So I dust off a treasure chest
    And store away the broken pieces of my soul."

    I can feel it. I have lived it...some pieces are still in that treasure chest.

    Good work
