out of this world

It is better this way

I empty my container of all emotions and watch as it bleeds dry.
Cracked and bruised with sharp edges protruding.
It’s better this way? 

The energy of a broken smile seeps out through the hidden holes of my diminished facade. 
My mask materialising into the form of a joyful child, while hiding the hurt filled woman. 

My secrets envelope the treasure chest and interwine from inside out. 
Only to halt at the red river lock that seems to have no key. 
It’s better this way?

The pathetic wall I built, dull and as weak as it’s maker. 
With vines growing all around it’s perimeter polluting and corrupting the way.

I listen for the sound of the sea shelled breeze but instead the piercing silence feeds my drum. 
So I dream.
It’s better this way?

I lose myself in the abstract world of the night.
Where pain is not tangible and laughter more pleasurable.

I embrace the forgotten world of the mind and dance along to the melody of no sound. 
No sound. No sight. No taste. No smell. No touch. No being. 
Is it better…

    To say you did justice to
    this poem is an understatement!
    This is so how I feel many at
    times, so I relate well with this.
    Beautifully pieced together.

    Us a doze of Kadeen’s wonderful

  2. No, it is not better this way,
    Open your heart, tear down the walls
    Instead of vines with spines
    Plant hibiscuses, delphiniums and lilies
    Draw love in
    It is always worth the risk
