Frozen

always frozen;
never moving forward.
These fleeting ‘happy’ moments
are all just an illusion!
…a deceiving game
that tortures me into a hope… a hope that
‘someday’ I won’t be
so stuck in this awful frozen sadness.

  1. Beautiful. And I am confident you will find your way out of the awful hole of hopelessness. I’ve been there…I was there for a long time, like you said “frozen”. Stuck.
    But it is possible to find hope again!

  2. Excellent writing. I understand you. Your writing touches me deeply. I have been told I am a tortured soul and I spoke with my therapist and other writers and was told that it takes a tortured soul to be able to reach out and touch other lives profoundly. You do that with grace.

    • wow… thank you! I guess I’m a little speechless… it’s good to know one understands! Writing seems to be the only way to truly express how I feel… putting voice is not that easy for me….

  3. Believe me, I understand. And, my writing speaks for me in so many ways. I am a Vietnam Vet and I have PTSD and I have a difficult time with emotions. I enjoy writing and I enjoy sharing with others thoughts about life. I write what I feel and I believe that is exactly what you do as well. I am a great deal older than you at 66 and have seen a lot in my life, done a lot and have many ghosts following me around. I’ve found that some people feel very comfortable with me and open up and tell me things they might not tell someone else. Maybe they sense that I do not judge because I live with my own memories of errors made and know I have no right to judge another, only God can judge. Anyway, I’m very happy you made comments on Poet in the Rain, and I’m even happier that I found your blog and subscribed to it. Best to you, Gordon Kuhn

  5. We all share some melancholy in our lives and in our work. You are not alone.

  6. The cold and ice that comes with “frozen” also echoes the emotions in sadness so well.

    Happy Rally.

  8. Nicely written. I think we have been there and can relate. : )

  10. Beautifully heartfelt, written piece, I can also relate to it :)

  11. Such honest emotion. Though it leaves me saddened for you, the sentiment is wonderfully expressed. Interesting that sometimes we are most lucid in our darkest days…

  21. I have lived many a day in that frigid dessert of which you speak. This too shall pass. Here is the link to a poem about the gateway to my own antarctic passage.

  23. I can relate so well to this poem. Sometimes I too feel trapped and frozen in sadness. Nicely done.

    • Thank you! I’ve said it before… But it’s comforting to know you’re not alone yet sad to know others feel the hurt you do as well…. Thanks for taking the time to comment;)

  24. This really spoke to me. I’ve been frozen too but thaw out now and then between freezes.

  25. Loved the picture. You’ll make steady progress when you know where sadness comes from and where it goes.
