Flood of my Soul
I've discovered a way for me to express,
My heartache and pain, when I'm under stress.
I let my thoughts flow out of my brain,
Tumbling, spiraling through pumping vein.
Some how they reach through this pen I hold,
Bursting forth, their story to be told.

Helter Skelter as I write them down,
Coming too fast, I feel myself drown.
The flood of feelings coming from my soul,
My heart becomes weary, unable to console.
I battle my way up to the surface,
Sputtering, kicking, the flood seems endless.

I see a lighthouse out in the distance,
Beckoning to me with it's flashing guidance.
A lifeline thrown from my very own conscience,
The flood waters recede, restoring balance.
My heart no longer weary, I'm able to control,
The flood of feelings coming from my soul.
Author's Notes:
I may not be very good at writing but it sure is helping to heal my wounded heart.

Dear Gay-
Your not good at writing??????????-
Well my dear friend this is certainly a
masterpiece of thought you have created here-
I thought each word was well placed allowing
the poem to flow through it's entirety
with a pondering grace-
Your talent is really starting to show and
it has been cool watching the depth of your
writing widen-
Your soul has withstood many test in this life
and your thoughts are now rewarded with true
unedited vision-
You are diamond begining to shine through simple written words-
Best Wishes to You and Yours~

It is one of the best therapies during different times in life to write. Healing is a gift you give to yourself each day you write. You are writing fine work for the readers and helping yourself too. Keep it up Gay.
