Song of guilt

Barely breathing, lungs fighting for life.

Heart pounding, trying to dismiss my resolve.

Brain a jumble of nonsensical thoughts

whirling in colors of bleak despondent


Dismal and dangerous anxiety of judgment

Sinking fast like swimming in quicksand

Reaching out a hand as I am engulfed in agony

Pleading for concern of self, as the light

disappears from my eyes.

Slowly I am drawn into a void of pain

Path of light that once existed, obscured by

the love I choose best to set free.

obliging him to enter the world of peace

For guilt is a sad Melody

As you said in/of your sad Melody -- sometimes love is best set free... so you are free to search for another that does not imprison your heart.  I hope you can you believe me when I say that, even though the sorrow may be profound, the clouds will break to show the sun again, and your horizon will stretch out before you showing you the beautiful colors of the sunrise of tomorrow... then there will be peace in your heart again.  Tristan.

Rainbows will paint the sky above you again.

As God reaches down to squeeze your hand.

But He is the one who gave you the golden pen.

Your heart will be heal, for writing is your best friend.

overwhelming, Melody!  sometimes we judge ourselves much more strict than what others do.  You have created quite a telling piece showing the reader your troubled heart...  So sorry if this is the current state of sadness that envelopes you.  I want to wish you New Horizons and sunny days...Linda

as always you've crafted a fine work that engages the reader, exposing him to the range of the writer's feelings - pain, hopelessness, despair.  a truly exceptional piece. 

on the personal level, i'm troubled by the darkness of tone, never sure if this showcases the range of a gifted artist's talents, or if this is too accurate accurate depiction of reality - hoping you are okay....
