Empty Rocket Room (Prose)
I'm stuck. I'm sitting here at work stuck on these words.
I need to purge these feelings from my heart.
But the honesty of them makes my stomach turn.
I needed love. Needed to be touched.
Living in a house with a man who wouldn't touch me scarred me deeply.
I felt so ugly, so unworthy.
I got out and found love, so why is my soul aching?
Why is my heart breaking?
Because I miss my children.
Even when they are with me.
Because I know they'll soon be gone. With Him.
And I hate him because he won't admit that he doesn't really want them every other week.
Puts them in front of the TV while he sleeps.
When they are gone, I feel sick walking by their room.
I stand in there and just stare at the emptiness.
I hear the silence of the house. But I can still smell them in there.
Can smell that smell that's always in their hair.
And my heart reels in ANGER. In sadness.
My heart S-C-R-E-A-M-S!!!
But I have to stay happy outside.
Chad wouldn't understand having a heart-broken bride.

i really loved that, but i do have a question for you and this will sound, i am sure, incredibly stupid but i'm sure that you could help me out. what is the difference between poems and prose? i'm sorry... but i would really like to know because i believe that i like to write more prose than poems. thanks. ^-^

Well, girl, this is one powerful piece of work; perfect description of a most unhappy, and all too common, heartache. Good work. ML

This is an incredibly sad write~ It is written with such a painful pen, and the reader can feel the raw emotions that you must feel~ Heart-wrenching poetry~

Hi Dori,

This is a very passionate write. It is as though you have written my exact words. I miss my boys terribly when they are away. Its like a hole that's never full even when they're there because I know they'll be gone again...I could say so much more, but I'm sure you already know. I wish you the best and all the happiness you can find...hoping it gets easier with time...

Good Luck,
