Headstall's Reflections - 55. Chapter 55 Frustration

Poetry is my therapy.

Headstall’s Reflections

 

 

Chapter 55 Frustration

 

 

Something Lost

 

Invisible barriers

Are holding me hostage

Gossamer chains

That weigh heavy

On my soul

 

Where is my fire

The steady flame

That took decades to build

And once served me so well

 

What am I doing to myself

That I can’t unlock

These terrible binds

Sawing at my flesh

 

Is my body the only traitor

Or is my mind complicit

 

Self-doubt is chipping away

Pieces that I need

Debilitating

And keeping me submerged

 

My resolve has turned tail

And I know it is infuriating

But where is my fury

Where is my fire

Piece by piece by piece.

"But where is my fury.  Where is my fire."  It will come back.. with each new word you write, and new story you tell, that fire will come back :hug:

Where IS my fire?  I figure it went where they all go...turning into embers which need a good bit of fussing to rekindle.  A little 'tinder', someone to blow on the coals...it'll be back.  :)

Of course, it could be like my experiences trying to barbecue--a box of matches and a pint of lighter fluid just might do it.

Yes. Exactly the questions I ask. Why does the fuel that once made conflagrations now sputter? Why is it so different now?  How surprised we are by the subtle, organic changes that creep up. Beautifully, eloquently expressed.
