I Purged - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

I bared my soul open
All my hidden contents spilled
Though I knew not the reason
Perhaps it was his ear
He shared in my fears
He spared me his sympathy
So I gave him all my shame

I purged until there was little left
Words poured without restraint
He picked them one by one
He did not hold back his judgment
I hope i did not weigh him down
So heavy was the burden laid
Too many were the sad words said

I purged my soul in his ears
I could not hold back the tears
Though it all left me exposed
To some degree almost drained
A new path of hope opened
The chains of pain were broken
Nothing can hold me back now

He came out of no where
A face I never knew before
It matters not why he came by
Even if it was by error he stopped
One thing is now certain
He gave me an ear
Today I cracked my soul open
