What's That They Say?

Image source:

Days of anger
Days of pain
What's that they say
That I'm insane
If that's true
Then who are you
Someone whose story
I wish I knew

Days of sadness
Lies and fear
What's that you say
Someone might hear
What has been hidden
From everyone's view
That mine is the story
I wish I knew

  1. interesting reveal there in the end that it is your story you wish you know...which takes me to some pretty dark places with the counseling i was doing before but....evocative poem...

  2. Wow. I don't know what else to say. Just wow.

  3. Well done. There's a haunting feeling to this at the end.

  4. Brian- Sorry for taking you back to a dark place in your life. It's not a place I want any personal experience with.

    Nicky- Thank you!

    Hilary- Thanks! Not a pleasant place to be I would imagine.
