Divulge

Spread the love

September Moonlight Fall Leaves Tree Nature Background Images

I sigh as emotions strive to meld with drops of rain
Or perhaps all that’s obscure cuts us way less deep.
Observe as rustle of leaves ‘neath shimmering sun
Breathe out whispers, which otherwise were none.
Some beg/offer refuge behind veil of nonchalance
But can features hide dolor behind a mere pretext
I believe to let heart speak out tales of buried past
Who knows how long a soul can its frame out-last.

    To keep things hidden or not…
    Sometimes we hesitate in sharing our thoughts and feelings for we know that some don’t want to listen, busy they are with their own lives and disinterested in ours.
    Baring our soul often makes us more vulnerable in what is this selfish world of ours.
    But I live in hope for there are many good folk in this world too.
    Kind regards

    Divulge–the frame won’t hold! I agree, if I am the frame. I’m lousy at keeping secrets–things grow in hiding. And it doesn’t matter if obscurity would save me from stigma and hurt. I mean, I’ve been scolded and I’ve tried–but you know how us poets are. How beautifully each statement contains its opposite! This is a real gem.

    BEAUTIFUL— I think, we must let out the ‘buried past’ and cleanse the system…so that there’s no repentance later. 🙂

    Beautifully penned Sanaa, with a well crafted resonance threading through

    much love…

    We do need those safe hearts to hear our tales… but they aren’t for just anyone… only those who care and who are willing to learn. Nice work as usual Sanaa

    A silenced heart dies… especially when the words are important and life-changing. And let’s face it, most words left unspoken for too long tend to chance everything they fail to touch. Inaction and forced silence are terrible things.

    I think by hiding our innermost thoughts and feeling we feel safer, more protected. To make our invisible visible makes us vulnerable – not something many of us wish to do in today’s society…
