So So Sad - Poem by Rik Bertrand

It caught me by surprise, this feeling I have inside.
It wells up and winds around my heart squeezing,
I feel so alone, and it hurts, I must lie down and cry.
My emotions have risen and the sad side is teasing.

How do I stop the pain that is in my heart,
How do I stop the tears that fall across my face.
I am alone and there is no one I can confide in,
I have fallen and I crawl across the floor in disgrace.

God forgive me, I have been forsaken and lost.
I am a failure in love and life, and I so sorry.
May you find it in your heart to forgive me?
The emotions I am experiencing are oh so scary.

I must cry and let it all out, relieve the pressure of guilt,
Relieve the pain in my heart, the sorrow I feel deep inside
Slowly, ever so slowly I must become one with myself,
I thank you, I Thank you Lord for being my guide.

REB (2012) Damn what's wrong with me, so sad.

    We live through our sad moments and just a bout of bad weather they seem not to last.
    It is only if we are afraid of sadness and try to put it away wihtout living through it that we store in places in our brain where it sits eating away our stomach lining.
    I like the poem. Sadness is a normal part of life and let it is so good to just let it be.
    I made a very short poem myself titled X..... A litle sadness
