Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

I wish it was possible. to gain back. what I have lost. I don’t regret. everything. I only want. what I had.

When you came. I wasn’t ready. as a consequence. I have lost. a lot. since then.

Confidence. peace. writing. I saw myself, how freedom turns into. fear. a fear that you. cannot. name. tame. cannot show. cannot hide.

I saw what a void is. what it is like. to be. a mess. I saw also. that. God really is there.

I wish. I could move. I am not. a tree. but I think. I am. a tree. I know I should not. be.

  2. I agree with writersdream9. The beauty of this piece depends on the pauses. Those full stops are placed with precision. Removing them would turn this into something totally different. Creative stuff.

  3. The Ending had me…..
    The whole feel of the poem, the pause, the breaks, the fluidity in between… Ahhh… words won’t ever be enough here…

    It’s been a while that i wanted to write about this void. Now i think you have done this better.

    Only if writing about voids could fix them somehow.

  9. Your writing is always so good Maria. This one is no exception.
    All I can say is, ‘life is not stagnant’. Neither is time. This time right now is our life, and it’s made up of our choices. I hope that makes sense.🙂❤

    • Thank you, Staci. You are right, life isn’t stagnant. It’s made up of our choices but choices alone don’t make it? Or maybe they do..?
      It’s always great to hear from you.❤
