Your Ecstasy

Updated on January 17, 2012

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.

I wanted your ecstacy

So bad

I wanted it everyday


You drew me near

I lost control

My love for you

Was suspended

By the strings

That held me

In mid air

It was a steady silence

That kept me there




For you

Until I was driven insane

Couldn't take it any longer

The flesh of madness

Grounded up and beat up

Into nothing

Leaving me lost

In this dark hole

That you have left me in

My heart screamed out


But you kept on

Until the madness was gone

Leaving me

Sinking into the ground

Farther and farther


You left me to

Fend for myself

Take care of myself


In a prison

Behind these walls

I wait

For the sunshine

To come

It never does

The rain pours in

Covering me with

It's slick wetness

I hope it will wash away

What you left behind

Even the rain can't wash

Away the pain that you

Have dug deep inside me

An unborn child

That can never be born

I wanted you to take it away

You never came

You only stayed away

      Voted up and beautiful. I'm not a poetry fan, but this was very good and twist to an ending I was not expecting ... well written.

      Thanks for SHARING.

      Extremely vivid, and full of imagination. I loved how you repeated "Waiting" in three lines. It certainly defined the true meaning of waiting.

      Hi Caroline,

      My first thought was powerful too and the noticed it was a common thought amongst the comments left her. I always enjoy your poetry whether it is dark, painful and sad, to happy and uplifting. It's all a work of art.

      Wow, this is breathtaking. You write superbly. It can be close and intimate, yet measured and firm. It is hard to show our pain in writing, and not all writers can do it. You have been through things and you express the so well. You should be published, I would buy your writing no problem.

      This work had a nice pace to it. A bit of perhaps 'frantic', perhaps, an evasive notion of something so close, yet out of reach.
