Please - Poem by Hamilton Macrae

Stumbling, fumbling, falling
onto my knees in pain
Wretching, writhing, gasping
for air to breathe again.

Desperate, distraught, deceived
but hoping that I'm wrong
Doubting, blaming, berating
everyone who comes along

Standing, looking, listening
to the sound of my beating heart
Surprised, alone, amazed
that I'm not torn apart

Maybe, somehow, surely
I'll get over this some day
Please, please, please
take this pain away.

    Powerful poetic words indicative of serious physical struggle and emotional turmoil that the formula of 'Another Day' may hopefully take you safely through. Strong open writing. (Report)Reply
