I write what I feel…

SHOCK

All life was suspended

And the earth stood still

I was encased in a void

Of neither heat nor chill

Breath and blood froze in time

And nothing intruded

In that world of mine

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  2. I like the sounds of that kind of peacefulness.

  3. Sometimes shock is good . . . it brings us back to our senses.

    Other times, it feels surreal . . . as you’ve described. As if we are in a bubble and nothing intrudes.

  7. I was in a state of shock when my husband had a bad motorbike accident a few years back. The police called me to the scene and when I got there he was lying on the road in a pool of blood. I thought he was dead. He is OK now but I’ll never forget that feeling of shock. It WAS as if I was in a void. Very odd feeling. Well described, Adeeyoyo.

    • I am so glad that he is ok, Selma. I have had that feeling twice and it is really peculiar. I tried to isolate exactly how it felt and now a little more has come back to me as I write this. Thank you Selma.

  8. An internal retreat, is sometimes the best way to find the place where you are meant to be. If that makes any sense.

  9. Can certainly identify with that feeling, Adeeyoyo – a shutdown for sanity’s sake. It’s time you had some pleasant surprises in your life

  11. Beautiful, Denise. I get the feeling it’s working out something specific. And thus therapeutic.
    I hope so.

  18. It reminds me of animals when they freeze in headlights. A moment of stasis when reality becomes too much.

    • That reaction is probably related to what happens to humans, i.e. fight or flight dilemma. Paralysis is a part of the reaction I described above though.

    • When the world gets too much for me, Epizeuzis, I like to withdraw for a while into a private place in my head and in my heart and picture a beautiful, peaceful scene…
