Chains - Poem by Silentpoet Grl

waking up chained, shivering in the dark
i find myself trapped in a deep abyss
everything covered with an icy frost
stinging the air bites with its coldness
creeping inside my heart leaving it frozen
painfully pulling, i fight to get free, noticing
the chains are edged with sharp razor blades
with every agonizing move they slice deeper
releasing more blood with every cut i take
the white frost becoming a dark crimson red
lurking are the memories, shadows haunting
tormented with fear its vividly reminding me
that pain took me captive, making me a slave
answering the dark shadows as they call
taunting my weakness they yank the chains
sinking the blades even painfully further in
crying out in agonizing pain, collapsing i fall
my heart shatters into icy shards still frozen
every part of my tired aching body is broken
heart no longer beating, i lost my will to get away
trapped here i remain, left here to die this way

    We can escape our pain by helping others. In helping others we also help ourselves. We are what we think, like we are what we eat. Speaking out in this piece, so tremendously well done, is the first step in recognizing the problem, therefore we can begin to unlock the chains that bind us. Pain is the most overwhelming when we don't reach out for help by feeling that we are alone. So many people feel alone, but once connected can unlock each others chains, and we by helping others are empowered to escape our own trap by touching another ones heart, therefore finding the key.
    Thank you for sharing your great talent with this masterful piece.

    Wow..when i imagined this, i just cant open my's really pain in front of my eyes...Maybe lot of things came to you and make you create this so real...Silent Poet i hope if we chained by many strong forces, we could find a way to break this with some other way...what use we fight and left broken at last? we can act like water, it never look as strong as we think but they can make a strong stone strong SG, you are strong i know it_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

    It never snows where I live, but I saw snowflakes falling, freezing my heart by the hurt in your poem. Here, I'm sharing the sunshine we're having today, may it turn you into a happy butterfly... (Report) Reply
