Lady Darjeeling

Rookie - 53 Points (Switzerland)

horrid surprises

A powerful voice
Screaming in my head
It wants me to change -
Change something -

But it's so loud I can't even understand
Or think about what it might want
Deafening shouts
Whenever I am still
Painful cries
Whenever I hold my breath
Why am I deaf?

I want to understand
Why life holds such horrid surprises
Whenever peace arises

    sounds like a bad dream...the amply conveys..turmoil and hurt and unanswered questions
    the howling winds of adversity travel through the page at break neck speed.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
