Heard, Held, Helped Inversed

I once wrote a requested word
That she wished only to be heard
But when few words I had spoken
The vows we shared had been broken
Here I was asking for the same
Left alone to hang my head in shame
All I wanted was to be heard
She wished I would not utter another word.

As I mourned my loved one dying
Supported her as much I was trying
Knowing now each of us was not well
I only longed from her to be held
Yet neither time nor space availed
Opportunity for mourning regaled
The torment within no longer kept
Alone in my pain I silently wept

In every disagreement we taunted
Both of us feeling unwanted
Yet nothing was further from Truth
But no longer could we be soothed
I had not been held nor heard
The meaning lost from the given Word
For all the feelings I have felt
She refused to give me help.

  2. I had set this poem private after being passive-aggressively shamed into taking it down. The feelings are very real though and still apply today months later. I regret compromising myself by removing previously.


  3. Reblogged this on Ninefold Evolution and commented:

    Reblogging as a reminder to myself. I’m not dwelling on this. Just reminding myself of why I’m better off right now.

    You are a gifted poet. Your feelings resonate with such truth. Unsure who but certainly the longings and reality of the situation is there.
