A little piece of me

These two poems here are newer ones, both connected in a way. They are both a piece of me, of my thoughts, of my emotion, my thoughts. I've debated for a few days about whether or not I should post them, because they are so personal. They might not be my best poems, and they might not have that 'flow', but like I said, it's a piece of me.

Thirteen
Ice lodges itself
in my throat.
Gasping; I need air.
I stumble,
someone catches me,
wraps their arms around me.
Memories burned to
the under-side of
my lids.
I am weak,
my eyes close.
The pictures dance
in front of my eyes.
They stab my body,
I am weak.
Words try to calm me,
they do not work.
I gasp for air.
The memories come faster,
quick punches and blades.
Memories of a sister,
a friend, a hope.
I try to hide them away,
but I am weak,
and I am only me.


A Secret Wish
Can I get a moment
of serious thoughts,
because I need to talk.
I need to explain,
what's happening
with me.
Confused, scared,
angry, and only thirteen.
These thoughts
bother me.
I'll smile and lie,
but she still
haunts my dreams.
And in the quiet of the night,
I still find tears
in the corner of my eye.
I need a moment
of serious thoughts,
because I need to talk.

Tears are good Rose, they are our healing. Never hold back, its like an ocean wave, some stronger and crashing, others just a small slap and slipped away. Keep writing, your words touch me many times. I have been told because we loved so deeply we must grieve deeply as well. Blessings, peace and a hug.

Rose,

I have been meaning to write to you. Your feelings are so moving.

The tears can come at any time. I keep thinking I am past crying and then something will trigger the floodgates.

I hope you will keep writing and sharing your feelings.

Love,
Ross

Rose,
I found a quote that I think is good... "Tears are words the heart can't express”. Although, I think you express yourself very well with your poetry. Maybe you can say "poetry are words the heart can't express". You are such a special person, with a unique talent and perspective on life. You are in my prayers daily and I am so blessed to know you and to be able to read your poetry. Thanks for having the courage to post your personal thoughts and feelings!
love,
