Words Lost

I want to write the words that make you better.
Creating the perfect solution, that would finally lay your division to rest.
Easing the hurt that has invaded your skin, with the feel of my paper,
and the flow of my pen.

The brokenness, in the depths that have shattered,
won’t mend – by my hand.
There is a darkness that wells to the tip of your eyelids.
Blackness circles . . . and children weep.
I cannot make you love, when love does not boil to the surface,
as hands to your heart – filter and clean.

No magic to be done.
No melodies here to bring,
your tortured mind to rest.

No pill to send,
that will change where you have stepped.

No barriers to build,
to fill your empty nest.

My words lay unopened on the tips of your fingers.
Tear stained, and placed upon the dresser of indifference.
Waiting for the day you place them to your ear and listen.
When you lay them on your heart,
and feel them beat anew.

Drown in the healing,
my words intended –
as they burrow solace,

deep and beautiful – –
inside of you.

  1. Excellent write Jess. Really like the flow and nature of the poem. The sensibility and honesty in this particular section just struck me a certain way, really like it, on it’s own and how it ties into the piece as a whole.

    No magic to be done.
    No melodies here to bring,
    your tortured mind to rest.

    No pill to send,
    that will change where you have stepped.

    No barriers to build,
    to fill your empty nest.

    Thanks for the read, hope all is well:)

  2. “When you lay them on your heart,
    and feel them beat anew.”

    reminds me of Joseph Chilton Pearce, in Magical Child where he talks about frogs hearts beating together is a form of bonding.

    Here’s a great quote from him in an interview:
    The idea that we can think with our hearts is no longer just a metaphor, but is, in fact, a very real phenomenon. We now know this because the combined research of two or three fields is proving that the heart is the major center of intelligence in human beings. Molecular biologists have discovered that the heart is the body’s most important endocrine gland. In response to our experience of the world, it produces and releases a major hormone, ANF – which stands for Atriol Neuriatic Factor – that profoundly effects every operation in the limbic structure, or what we refer to as the “emotional brain.” This includes the hippocampal area where memory and learning take place, and also the control centers for the entire hormonal system. And neurocardiologist have found that 60 to 65% of the cells of the heart are actually neural cells, not muscle cells as was previously believed. They are identical to the neural cells in the brain, operating through the same connecting links called ganglia, with the same axonal anddendritic connections that take place in the brain, as well as through the very same kinds of neurotransmitters found in the brain.
