Drown a Flask

Confusion purl inside my head,
sad thoughts besiege this weary soul.
Words spoken – carelessly said,
alone, I plummet down a hole.
Can eyes see pain behind my mask,
concealing anguish buried deep?
Escape your own pain, drown a flask,
Your pseudo façade makes you weep.
Expressions glaring dissension,
this anger boils your mad face red.
The wine color brings forth tension,
unsaid words scratch till hearts are shred. 
Appears to be a no-win lot,
old patterns never seem to lie.
Let distance heal this love torn knot,
before time takes toll and we die.

    I Just deleted a whole lot of words to say you are not alone.

    Awesome writing. your mood and pain come through line by line. Fighting to hide the hurt and anger, hoping the separation made of silence will heal the wounds love has inflicted. Love it!

    I can get behind these words. Daily we suffer behind the face we put on to comfront the world with, only to be met with reality come nightfall.

    You should never feel like this,
    but when it inspires such words,
    you might think it’s almost worth it.

    Too many times have I been there. There’ll be people out there saying “don’t feel that way” as if that will make you automatically feel like you’re not alone. I hope whatever demons you face you conquer them, and that with time behind your mask will not be pain, but confidence – and in time you may find you may not need the mask anymore.

    A great work of poetry, thank you for sharing!
