Hostile Frustration

I have to force it out.

I try to conceal

yet need to release,

use to flow out of me,

like a natural springÖ

Now, my words form

numb in my soul

shatter like glass

in a million little pieces

and melt away

like snow flakes

on an open fire

without me

musing for it.


my heart
my soul
my being


to be heard

to be noticed

to express
my feelings,

to make me

what I feel
why I feel!

those words
are kept
by a  force,
in me,

I cannot control

cannot place

cannot understand.


My words are missing


Iím empty

Author's Notes:

Just an effort to explane the frustration in loosing my words.

Probably the best expression of that feeling I have read.  Losing the words, writer's block, whatever IT is. Excellent write.

Dear Adri.....Even though the title rushes forth with 'hostile frustration', you have given us a beautiful, flowing account of your emotions that have bubbled to the surface.....Writing from your soul is evident here....Gripping read.....

To sunshine....

I'm sure we all feel like this at some point in our lives. :-) You've expressed the idea of this beautifully. I loved the whole poem!

my words get lost with my a.d.d. or whatever they call it

you have a great way of expressing yourself in script.

A terrific poem, I like the style.  You said so much for someone who has lost their words.

Very well written expressing your search of intellect and soul for the self and its meaning.  That's a worthy and mystical journey.  The words that you sought, you found.  Your honesty is so relevant and so pure.  This is a wonderful poem... flow, originality, creativity, great vocabulary of expression.  Nice work.  Tristan

I think ya did a pretty good job of expressing yourself here, Miss Heerden.

Take it from me (one who knows all about the pit from personal experince)
you are doing really well expressing things. You may not rate them just now...but one day you will look back and read and know that you can help others through the same thing.
To me, this is often the power of poetry especially when it come from the soul almost as an anguished cry....
better days are ahead my dear Adri. My thirties were good, my fortries were fifties suck ;-(

It is very frustrating to not be able to express yourself and even more frustrating to be able to an no one listens. I know this frustration Adri

Nice Write

i think you did a great job explaining your frustration - but i think you may well have found your words again!  this is insightful and thoughtful.  i also think the visual element of your poem - short lines, centered on the page - amplifies the feeling of constriction you are feeling.  great work, adri.

let it all hang out, baby!! I think this is what people call writer's block. I don't believe there's any such thing. It implies that we have a great message and something is preventing it from coming out...Sometimes, we just have nothing to say. When inspired, not force on earth can keep it inside.. Nice writing, though...Hang in there, kid...len

Really great poem.  It is frustrating to not be able to express yourself and I thing your poem explained it wonderfully.   
Comment By: FreeLinda Jo on February 24, 2010 05:44:03 PM Report
Adri, I do feel your frustration in this piece.  Just want you to know periods of silence are ok...sometimes we feel as though we don't have anything we want to share, or feel like our thoughts are unworthy, or that there is no one to listen to  what we have to say...then it is time to pamper yourself...take the pressure off, go for a long walk in peaceful surroundings, make a mental note of all the things you are grateful for, buy some fresh flowers to put in a vase, or treat yourself to a new fragrance...fill your yourself, you are worth it!

I have wondered about such things you know.  How does it occur when one is presented with a moment that begs for a response.  Does inspiration and motivation need to arrive together?   Should we ruminate like a cow chewing its cud or push the words out on a stream of emotion?   When we are at a lose for words should we follow a feeling to generate the verbiage or go through a slow thoughtful process?

Dont we all have this, I have had it for over a year, at least you can still say what you feel. Joe

Adri:  oh those annoying frustrating depressing days when the words just huddle in a corner of your mind/soul!!!!  


I too well know this feeling; gotta just keep trying to get the words to march forward!!!

Sometimes when the words get dammed up, it causes our insides to feel cramped, crowded and frustrated....You've expressed it perfectly!

Hang in there, Dear Ah...I know it will pass...but waiting is the hardest thing!

Love ya bunches!
