Primal Thoughts

Cosmic scream

Cosmic scream

I know we’re meant
To take the journey ~
For the journey’s
Sake alone ~

So is it weakness that
I yearn to get ~ some
Recognition or applause ~
For what I’ve wrought ~

And why should I care ~
I am no
Leader of society ~
No one is hanging
On my words
Or ever will ~

But sometimes I am lonely ~
I’m only human after all ~
And when the quiet is
Too much to bear ~

I scream …

About the Author:

Born in a small, Illinois log cabin. No, that won't work. The pampered only child of incredibly wealthy parents. No, that doesn't fly either. Raised by French nuns after her aristocratic parents were beheaded. No, that's been done! An East Coast transplant to the Pacific Northwest, this notoriously late bloomer began her new life with a new career as a writer and blogger. She has taken to both the new location and the career move like a duck to water. Writing for Expats Post is a new adventure, and our intrepid risk-taker is diving in, feeling right at home with so many old friends.
Reached for comment she replied, "Okay, I wrote my bio, may I Please go out and play?"
We expect great, or perhaps merely more coherent, things from this writer. (Okay, that's a wrap. What a wacko!)

    Beautiful poem Melody. I’m pretty sure most of us can relate to this piece. Thanks for sharing it.

      Thank you, Dean. My Muse was having a bit of a tantrum so she’s in timeout. I just had a nice shower and am going to drink an ale and relax. Thank you for stopping by. :)

    I do feel a scream deep down. It’s waiting for me to untangle the thorns & brambles outside my dream center. Time for contemplation & to meditate open the imprisonment of my voice. Thank you, Melody, for your poem. Your voice is heard & you are experiencing much more than just the journey. Your star shines bright. It illuminates not just for your self but others whose lives you touch. I know for certain you have helped me more than you know. From the first time we met, you have been inspiring. <3 & :-) Jennifer

    Jennifer, thank you. It means so much to me to know that my words had meaning for you. That’s how writing connects us to each other across great distances and even across time, and it’s moments like this that make it all worthwhile.

    I’m glad we met. My life was changed for the better when I began writing and meeting so many other writers -- people who speak the same language. It’s a new form of freedom I might otherwise never have experienced. Thank you again for being one of those friends. <3 Melody
