Broken Stones

Dedicated to a friend who I talked to today and this is how she explained her life to me. I tried to sooth the pain and help her open her eyes a little but I do not know if it helped. All I can do is pray and hope all goes well and be there when she needs me.

Dedicated to you K.S.

Placed upon this earth to fight

The obscurity that pain brings to light

One foot placed in front the other

Asking if I will ever get any further


My heart the vinyl circle once played

The darkest moments in life never fade

Clinging onto the ledge with one finger

Calling for help the volume muted on his ringer


Landing on a plane so very far away

Asking if I may or may not stay

I walk the gravel with concrete soles

Everywhere I look pitched black holes


Chin to my chest as clouds circle above

No one around for me to shove

Just I, the lonely wonderer of this pain

Left without any one to whom I can explain


Black tears fill the emptiness of my core

Asking for a brand new opened door

I reach; I reach for just one hand

Having two feet on which to stand


Not I, will I ever find within this place

I call upon the only one who will fill my grace

I-I ask him to please bring me home

Lift me off this misery I roam

Mama, She was very pleased with it and very thankful!! Thank you!!

Writer, I have to admit it is one of my favorites!Ty.

K. I wish for the same thing I know one day she will look back and think I was able to get through this and look at it is a life learning experience. Sometimes we think why do bad things happen to good people?

Daily, She is very flattered and honored although it isn't the happiest thing I have ever wrote but she said that is exactly how I feel and your words are beautiful and you are great with words!! Thank you....

Moneycop, Thank you once again for your opinion but I would have to disagree with you on this one. This poem has great depth and hard work who is too say that I do not try my hardest??

smiles all bella

I dont know what your friend's problem is but she is half way there with a friend like you. If only this friend loved her self as much as you obviously love her she would surely find the cure. A lovely heart felt tribute to your friend.... Well done girl and give my best wishes to your friend and a big kiss to you both from Scarface1300.

I can't explain her situation because it wouldn't be my place. I have come to understand that what she is dealing with isn't the easiest in life especially when you are violated in such a way. The few things I do know is that she has to learn to let it go and give it to God. He is the only one that can help her through this turmoil. She needs to realize by allowing the situation to consume her it’s taking her and eating her alive. But she is the only one who possesses the power to conquer her goliath. I pray that she finds the inner strength to fight with all she has. I know what she went through I wouldn't want to go through or experience such pain and obscurity and I myself would not know how to cope with. I try my best in putting myself in her shoes and feeling what she felt and trying to deal with her pain and walk her through it. Thank you for taking the time Scarface I really try to be a instrument to guide and love the way we should in the flesh!!

Sunshine, Thank you she did love it. And was very happy that I have shown her that I am no proser but a true friend indeed. Its hard to trust one with your accounts of life especially ones that are life altering.

Voted up...the pain felt in the poem is very real. Sad, but true to life, for those who wander looking for what they cannot always have. Great tribute to your friend, bella.
