Seven Steps To And Fro - Poem by Ellie Daphne van Stralen

tears on her pillow
draw her huge billow
drowned in awkwardness
invisible in darkness
 
deafening loud scold
denial of mold
memories unbound
plunging her drowned speechless sound

feelings paralyze
fears demoralize
life's always the same
words unable to explain

ignorance dictates
returning misstates
silencing too much
lost the connecting touch

saddening feeling
despite crushed kneeling
bricks building a wall
dry tears tell about the fall

time stepping backwards
frightening factors
unwanted distance
lost intense inner guidance

her new world ice glassed
storms of the lost past
arriving ashore
irreversible once more

she fights frozen air
gazes with a stare
searching for fires
her own past never retires

tears on her pillow
drawn by the willow
dry frozen in time
fate echoed again her chime

she searches for words
struggles with what hurts
moments of relieve
her wish, dream, truth and belief
