moment of weakness


S
i had a temporary moment of weakness
thnking like a wounded pup on a snowy day..
self pity circling its way around me..
shadows pointin nd laughing..
''you're so predictable'' they said
i was caught in a web of confusion..
should i go this way or that way..
should i take his hand or hers..
i was trapped in cave of momentary terror...
demon eyes darting abt the room..
with a stricking smell of doom
i was a mouse.. a small little creature abt to b poisoned by the humans..
i was weak indeed..
but alas..um back..
like i said.. i had a temporary moment of weakness..
nd if u thnk this poem is depressin..
my friend-imaginat­­ion is wat u lack: D
im no longer a demsel in distress..
iam a demsel but without the 'stress'; D

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
