Emotional wastelands

So this is what it feels like

To be banished to the emotional wastelands

So this is what it feels like

To walk among the living dead

Eating, sleeping,but never feeling

What it means to be


So this is what it feels like

Living with the knowledge that you are dying

Slowly, gradually, yet not really at peace

To die.

So this is what he felt like………..

So this is what it feels like

To gaze on to a land with no color, no life

Where no flowers nod and

Bloom in the wind,no faces smile

And greet, no sun shines

So this is what it feels like

In a land where only grey lives in shades, where misery

Lurks in every nook and corner, where heartache

Triumphs and numbness reigns

So this is what it feels like

To slowly wither away…………

    In the hands of a lackadaisical stoic insensitive, the ethereally sensitive does wither away.It is inevitable and essential in the imperative process of salvaging the all too fragile soul. Your words sing to my depths, stir something within that haven’t stirred in a very long time.Reminds me strongly of myself when I was young. Powerful words from a mighty powerful Goddess with an unbreakable soul. How do I know? It’s there in the words, the poetry,the eyes ;)

    When the heart breaks, these feelings you’ve conveyed become daily musings. You’ve displayed the feelings with an excellent compilation.

    Hate to be in emotional wastelands because it’s the only place that we learn the reality the truth, that you have been abandoned and forgotten…… and my dear carefree wanderer you have taught me this bitter truth here
