A candle flickers in the distance
Fueling the race in my mind
Footsteps getting louder
My conscience not far behind

Consumed with thoughts of times past
My unshed tears hiding within
Guilt, shame, sorrow, blame
Feelings surfaced, unforgiving sins

A quiet mind is a happy soul
The war rages on, my mind seeks ease
A warm comfy resting place
No longer am I eager to please

Missime66, another wonderful poem. You have a way of expressing your thoughts so eloquently. Have you considered maybe having some of your work published? I'm serious, your work is that good. Very Happy

Thank you NSC! To answer your question - no i've never consider getting published. I am very detached from anything I write. I put pen to paper and then I am done with it. I am a bit of a scatterbrain I guess. Mostly i've never really considered my work good enough since I don't really relate to anything i've written. I think I express what needs to come out...once it's out, it's gone.

Thank you, Thank you!

-Melissa

If this is an example of what you write when your feeling detached....I wonder what they would be like if you felt that connection with your writing. I know, for me, I can't wait to read more of your prose. Very Happy

And 🇳🇴 Melissa I didn't pay her to say that. :shock: I hope here at Writers Fortress you will accept our compliments on your poetry and perhaps find that connection. I think this was beautifully written. You have a style that seems to shine through your all your work, and its very endearing. Whether you are connected or not, the emotion and passion is still evident, the feelings are deep and your conveying of it all...wonderful. Great job. cheers
