English #frapalymo Day 24 – Deep Cuts

Isolation within
Creates a cocoon of
Hopelessness
Thoughts distort
Feelings warp
Until there’s nothing left
Anxious
Despondent
Begging for sensation
The deep cuts start
Rivers of blood flow
Feeling returns
For a split second
Of bliss
But the spring runs dry
And all that remains
Is lonely
Disturbed
Silence


#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog Just Fooling Around with Bee.  Today’s prompt is “cut off”.  I realized after I wrote it that I went in a slightly different direction than the actual prompt.

frapalymo

Feel free to play along.  Here are Bee’s suggestions:

  1. read the translation of @FrauPaulchen’s prompt
  2.  write your English (German if you can/want to) poem on your blog and tag it with “English #frapalymo.”
  3. use the “English #frapalymo” picture if you want to
  4. set a link to the translated prompt here on Bee’s blog
  5. visit other links posted here and if you want to/can those posted with the hashtag #fapalymo on Twitter
  6. The Bee will post your link to the German #frapalymo and translate for you if you want to. Now go, create and have lots of fun!
