stone

what does one say,
when there is nothing to say
when the expressions well up on the inside,
but don't even have enough strength to make it out of parted lips
when one is simply too tired to live
when silence will not suffice,
but the words wont either
when angers are dull axes
hacking away at the inside of a mind
concussing blows
that will neither cease pounding away at that which holds them,
nor slice their home open and make their way out
free

these lines on my face
my soul's impotent rebellion

If silence is unacceptable and
you are unable to speak it, you are left with two options,

Write it or Draw it...

I love lines on a person's face. It tells me they really feel, deeply, even if painful. Much better to me than a shallow non-caring person.
Love ya, Justy Boy.

Amazing writing. Write from your soul, no matter what that soul is saying.

Man alive. I have a friend in South Africa who is going through some extremely difficult times, and reading this, all I can think of is her....

Oh. I ABSOLUTELY know how this feels. You have no idea.

Brian is right - Vomit on the page - you'll feel better!

I have had this feeling many times. Your words almost make it beautiful.

I have been in this place before too.
It will start to come out in some form when the time is ready.

vomiting on the page is good. sometimes it's easier to write the words rather than speak them, especially if you know speaking them won't change a thing. at least getting them out on paper sometimes makes it easier to deal with.
