The Corner

You must believe

I’m made of stone

My heart

Encased in steel

One look

I breathe

One touch

I’m free

One cruel word

Banishes me


Orbiting misery

Heart clenched

Bracing me


I know too well the

Punishment I motivate

Silence you demonstrate

Gut wrenching pain

Pushes pink clouds away

Fostering darkened skies

Banished to the corner

Broken and torn

Somewhere inside

The depths of your mind

A dark corner

You’ve labeled mine


  1. Beautiful misery... A pain I would guess many know, yet find hard to articulate. Well done

  2. This encompasses my thoughts and feelings so beautifully and thoroughly - I became one with the words, as if you had looked into my heart and wrote what you saw.

    Well done. Thank you for sharing.

  3. "One touch I'm free" That is how it goes; it's what we always want. When the ache is stunning, there is a lady wookie poem. xo

  4. Lovely and wrenching. Nicely done.

  5. Well written and yes manny do feel like that but suffer in silence!
