Have you ever sensed it
The poisonous sting of another?
Piercing clothes, skin, muscle and bones
Needles poking, pushing deeply into your eyes
Looking away does naught to soothe the tender flesh.
Burning bushes of anger deep inside you suddenly awakened
Fraught with insecurities laid there deep-rooted by another
And intense is the passion of their glares, stares, and punctures.
Sulking somewhat and turning away,
The weight still bleeds her wearily
Why again, what now for I don’t even know you,
Never have you spoken to me nor known my inner heart,
Nevertheless, I know your name all too well,

There is beauty in all things God created. The curve of one’s cheek, the space between teeth, or the smile given with tenderness to an unknown passerby, for all hold a unique splendor!by JKC

This poem is powerful and expresses the pain in a profoundly eloquent way. Thank you for sharing your beautiful soul with us!
Oh thank you so much Jennifer for your sweet comment. It means a lot to me. Some of my poetry is difficult to read I know but we share the sad with the happy as artist. Again, thank you so much.
You are welcome with all my heart, my dear sister! Yes, it really is so important to have a place to express both in your art. I believe God can bring healing through this way too. <3 <3
Thank you so much and of course you are right. Thank you for caring and I too believe that God brings healing to us every day. Have a blessed day Jennifer. Love ❤️ Joni
Amen, He sure does! You are so very welcome, Joni. May your day be beautifully blessed with His presence and love too! <3
Truly, envy is a painful emotion and the cause of much grief.
Thank you for understanding exactly what I meant Anna. You are a sweetheart. I have really been thinking about you. I hope you are doing alright. Although it is sometimes hard for me to know what that even means. Love you dear Anna. 🤗❤️🙏
