Poem - Painful Memories

Updated on August 30, 2012

Poem - Painful Memories

Every night in my dreams; I reach for the stars.
Yet when I awake I remember I’m trapped in iron shackles and behind bars.
Life for me is not pleasant; life for me is far from nice.
Every day I live in pain, and feel like I do nothing but sacrifice.

All my dreams and desires; have all been blown away.
Everything was lost on that one terrible day.
Terrorism caught me off guard.
It left the love of my life martyred.

When I close my eyes I see nothing but her beautiful face.
She may be gone, but in my heart she will always have her place.
I can almost smell her, almost touch her, almost hear her wedding day speech.
Our vows were forever, so to me I know she is right here, but just out of reach.

Every time I awaken, I see nothing but red.
Blood, revenge, anguish and hatred.
All I want is justice. All I want is to share my pains.
Every waking minute leaves me screaming from my bounded chains.

The only thing in my life to me that mattered.
The love of my life, the earth went and shattered.
But to whom can I blame?
Is it the terrorists fault if he acted insane?

Every day I toy with the idea of ending it all.
Maybe I’ll see her in heaven; once again hear her call.
But if I were to go, who else would I leave, behind here to stay.
If I were to take my life, who else would I leave in pain every day?

      Thank you both so much for your comments.

      This is not something that actually happened to me.

      Very powerful and intense. I pray that this is not what has happened in your life, but it is just your writing. If it is, I pray that the Lord draws near to you, and you draw near to Him, as it is He alone who can set you free from such bondage and pain. He is near to the brokenhearted. God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper
