Between Us


Lines,
borders,
strings
between us 
left me alone.
Aching,
burning,
my broken spirit seared.
My pain shifted,
my resolve questioned,
my being a landscape
of emptiness. 
Disappointment
does not whisper,
it roars,
it burns the skin and the soul.
Love possesses
the beauty that transcends defeat.
The bitter taste
lingers on my lips
by questioning
all I had believed in.

  4. You are right. Disappointment NEVER whispers. It is there roaring in our hearts, roaring in our souls. We might deny it, but it is there and loud.

  8. Intense emotions are hard to easily compartmentalize, especially with disappointment roaring in your ears.

  9. Disappointment
    does not whisper,
    it roars,

    Yes, it roars indeed and sometimes we just want to cover our ears.

  11. 'The bitter taste

    Brilliant close on this piece. I think that most of us have tasted that bitter taste. And if we haven't we probably should have. Then again, perhaps a very few are very, very blessed, and pass through this life never feeling compelled to confront our beliefs.

    An iconic theme that resonates to the core of what it is to be human ... stunningly rendered.

  13. Wow! It sounds like a turning point..perhaps disappointment should be expected? How can it be otherwise? Let not disappointment, or death sneak up on us? Keep the vigil. Sometimes I wonder, when we tell the universe, we know best? A wonderful thoughtful poem...

  20. Especially devastating when people believe they are coming to a safe place and face horrors as bad as what they are fleeing. This is not North America, but a terrible aberration that needs to be ousted.

  21. Such a strong write Ayala - full of the essence of the truth of suffering. I admire the strength you have to write this and navigate your way through - all the very best to you...

  22. There is great heartache and pain when borders separate us....a potent poem!

  23. The roar can be deafening! Eventually we can hear again the voice of the Self, upon whom we can rely.

  24. Visiting this poem again that I had visited earlier. Strong writing...hard to question all that one believes in.

  25. Disappointment certainly roars and it then weakens us and makes it hard to have the resolve to put things right. This is a very emotive piece of writing.
