Title: Lingering
Post by Sojourner on Nov 3rd, 2006 at 1:05am
Lingering in the darkness
Scared to make a sound
Holding myself close
Praying not to be found

Shaking in the stillness
Catching every breath
Knowing in my mind
My voice could be my death

Hurting in the coldness
Feeling numb inside
Sorrow fills the void
There is nowhere to hide


Jenna

Although this is a poem that evokes sadness and despair, your words express your feelings so  beautifully, so intensely and perfectly... we are amazingly creative as survivors...so manyb "gifted" individuals here! Thanks for sharing this with us.

Jenna,
I can relate so well to your words and your fear.  
I am sorry.
Perhaps here can be a safe place for you to come and just be, without needing to hide.
You are safe now Jenna.  I hope you can believe that.

Your poem seems so sad but oddly enough it brings strength to me just to know I am not alone. I have been on a destructive path for awhile and I'm struggling to find my way back home. Thank you for sharing these words here.
