Have you ever....

Have you ever felt the emptiness?
The sting of suppressed tears, 
clouding your vision, 
making the world swim before your eyes?
An ache of loneliness and longing...
and you don't quite know the source?
A restlessness that comes from nowhere?
Near panic, but at what?
Have you ever felt the break coming...
powerless to make it stop,
praying that you can find 
a place away from prying eyes
to fall apart?
Have you ever been so close to the edge
that you feel vertigo's pull?
Tried to balance and back away
before the fall?
Wished desperately for someone,
to hold you
and help you
hold it together?
And wept to find yourself alone?
Have you ever?

....yeah, well, neither have I.

Work in progress....

Ok, so normally I don't post unless I have a finished piece.... but I'm feeling somekinda way.  And I wrote this on the fly... seriously, my poet friends/poetically inclined friends, leave a comment... help me pull the rest of this out of my gut so my stomach will stop aching.... Peace and Love!

I feel a pressure to be unshakable
an expectation to be unmoved
an assumption that I am indestructible 
a theory as yet unproved 

Inside I feel the weakening
I hear the wind blow through the cracks
there is creaking throughout my structure
I'd fall apart if I relaxed.

Like a false front on a building
I try not to show the wear
But my soul is silently shrieking
and collapse is what I fear.

I tried playing with some Haiku...
Several Haiku as a matter of fact, to create a longer poem.
Let me know what you think.

It's an old debate
with no clear answer to it.
Which one wins the fight?

Unstoppable force?
Or Immovable object?
Physics is a bitch.

You, unstoppable.
Never in one place for long,
barely slowing down.

I, immovable,
never far from home for long, 
need familiar ground.

Your force compelling,
my gravity is quite strong.
Neither can prevail.

See, it is win/win
if we throw out the rule book.
Physics, go to hell.

Welcome, Collision!
Our friction makes the best sparks...
MY Big Bang Theory!
