Falling To Pieces

Puzzle Pieces
Falling To Pieces
August 22nd, 2008

Frustration eating me inside and out
Trying to keep it together
As I slowly fall apart
The cracks in my soul show through
As if my entire body was cut in half
Then again.

Picking myself up as I go
Trying to keep it together
All in one piece.
But those pieces of me are crumbling on the floor
Barely keeping it in.
I can’t put the pieces back together
Of the puzzle
That has become my life.

I can’t keep it together.
Until I explode,
Dropping all of those pieces.
In turn losing myself
And You.

    Hi Matthew – I just voted for you on Perfect Business in response to your email and then followed this link through. Not sure I’ve been here before. That poem sums up how I felt today. I think there’s a lot of emotion inside a lot of us these days, hence all the techniques for dissolving it that I blog about. It still seems to keep on coming though – and as you say, it can affect our relationships with others as well as with ourselves. I find it helps to just accept how we feel – go easy on ourselves – then at least one layer of frustration is removed.

    Thanks for the great comments, I am glad you enjoyed the poem.

    Frusteration is tough because the only thing that can really relieve that is success, which is often harder than it seems.

    All your poems are touching. I feel uplifted reading them, working on a few poems myself. I would like to know? Where do you get the Inspertation from?
