ADD TO MY FAVORITES
Remain inside through day and night.
That I could launch into the air,
With wings, to leave behind such plight.
Oh, to escape such inner pain
Or even numb it for a time,
Steal moments when I may feel sane
To camouflage distress of mine.
Where may I go for such a fix?
I’ve looked to pills to find the cure,
But on my mind they just played tricks,
And I was left to pain endure.
I let the bottle lure me in.
Deceitful, though, it was to me.
No point in trying that again.
Its substance didn’t set me free.
I tried to hide within myself;
Pretended to no more exist.
I placed my being on a shelf.
It didn’t work, the pain persists.
I wonder how to get away
And to escape this misery.
I feel the tears are giving way,
Emerge from deep inside of me.
The sobs begin to take control.
I feel the anguish breaking loose.
Expression of tormented soul,
The tears keep coming, so profuse.
I’m letting go, I can’t stop now,
Yet strangely sensing some release.
The pain is lessening somehow.
I have received a bit of peace.
I feel His fingers on my face,
Collects my tears, takes them away.
His bottle will my tears encase,
Consoles me by such sweet display.
With Him beside me I can cry
His presence seems to comfort me.
I’ve learned my pain I can’t deny,
Must let it out to be set free.
