Critical Hit -- Free Verse/Dedications

Cold grip
Of anguish
Of doubt
Of helplessness
What did I do
What did I say
What do I do
What do I say
Blindsided by misplaced anger
Sucker-punched by someone I care for
So badly I feel
So bewildered
So lost
Frustration, Doubt
Sadness, Fear
Why must I feel this way
Why did it come to this
I do not want to fight
But the shots have been fired
My pain seen as nothing
My shock seen as an opening
No help to be found
Nobody else cares
Nothing makes sense
I want to run
I want to disappear
I want to be free
Of this anguish
Of this sorrow
Of this betrayal
Tears will not fall
Anger will not rise
Energy will not recover
Sapped of the fire
I drift cold and alone
Not sure of anything

Author's Notes:

Dedicated to those who have been betrayed and/or cut deep emotionally by those who are supposed to 'love and care' for them...
