Have You Ever? - Poem by cathy clough

have you ever stayed awake
through many haunted dreams
have you ever whispered out
all your anguished screams
have you ever soared so high
with feet firmly on the ground
have you ever gone deaf when
listenening for every little sound
have you ever stood erect
though you felt damaged and stooped
have you ever trusted again
after being soundly completely duped
have you ever wondered then
what it is that makes you whole
have you ever than realized
that it was your fractured soul?

    The rhyme is pretty on. There are a few words that I would get rid of because of flow issues in a couple of places, but all in all it is really good It reminds me of some of the earlier stuff I used to write. Keep up the good work (Report)Reply
