(087) Secret Thoughts - Poem by Melvina Germain

To, hold shameful, desperate thoughts.
Certainly not that of a well mind for sure.
It is you, thinking of closing that final door,
a selfish thought indeed.

Is it really you, who thinks of this,
or is it Satan’s malicious twist.
Not wanting you, to think clean and pure,
he comes sneaking through your door.

Your thoughts he penetrates, night after night.
Allowing you not to put up a good fight.
Thrusting backwards, falling down,
reaching upwards to find that great crown.

Help is what you require, if you want to succeed.
Strength, oh yes, you must find the need.
You’re falling faster and faster, no one knows,
until you finally reach disaster.

Family and friends pray for you everyday,
this is the reason you’re able to stay.
You hear the voices now and then,
the soft whispers of your true friends.

Stay you must and stay you will,
your presence here is needed still.
turn away from Satan’s grasp,
and find a way to close the clasp.

    Melvina, I am so impressed with this sad well written poem.It is amazing in it's entirety...what I mean is even though is it sad, it is also happy how the person that is written about in the poem realizes how loved they are and hears the voices of those who love them and it pulls them back...
    Everytime I turn around...I read another type of poetry you are good at writing about...you are a poet with many sides and opinions and I am glad you share your thoughts with us! ((Smile))
    Honestly this poem is great...and the imagery and feeling you put into this piece has confirmed once again that one is never alone even when they are physically...because they always have memories...and they can listen to the voices of the past which pulls them back to the good that untimately surrounds us if we let it! !
    Thanx for sharing and Happy belated birthday! Hope you got my message the other day on the phone...
    Oh and Happy Easter! Thank God Jesus rose again after dieing for us sinners saved by the grace of GOD.
    Take care of U,
    =Shelley=
