But I…

I Loved

……………….it was worthless

I Cried

……………..it was empty

I Fell

………………i am still falling

I Died.

……………….There’s no one calling

Of Two Minds

When the light reaches through

My heavy-lidded sleep

I lay still a sec or two;

Will I smile today, or weep?

 

On days of the first

I plan, I work, I do.

An energetic burst;

But days like this are few.

 

On days that feel the latter

I put on a brave face

I fill my day with chatter,

My effort leaves no trace.

 

I have thought to reach for aid

But don’t know how to express

How parts of me fade;

How each day is less and less.

 

Who could know this blight?

Who sees through the smoke?

Who would know I’m not all right?

Who sees I hide behind each joke?

 

When the light reaches through

My heavy-lidded sleep

My mind get it’s on-cue.

Which mindset will it reap?

 

Hybernate

Teardrops drying

Snowflakes flying

Safe in winter’s warm.

 

Isolated

By ice created

Hybernate: conform

 

Get to it later

It leaves no crater

It’s expected you’ll tuck in.

 

It lends a safe clause

To take a safe pause

Resting in your skin.

 

I’ll take an out-bow;

Let me heal now.

I’ll come back up in spring.

 

 

 

Life Story

Life is full of challenges

Some big and some small

We try to sway past obstacles

But we can’t see them all.

 

They say life’s all ‘bout choices

But it’s also mostly chance.

How do you meet prince charming

If they never hold a dance?

 

We take what we are given

And we spin it to a tale

Making up our story

Explaining why we fail.

 

But what if all our failures

Are really just plot twists?

What if each discomfort

Is a lesson we have missed?

 

Thrive

Darkness echoes out the light

But I won’t give in to night

‘cause I am ever shining bright!

I thrive, I thrive.

 

Sometimes I lose myself to fear

Forget the need to hold ME dear

But there is not an ending here

Because I thrive! I thrive…

 

Constant standing strong alone

Leaves me coping on my own

Pressing, breaking, weight unknown

I survive. I survive.

 

Here surrounded by claimed friends

Who know nothing of my ends

My long Iron willing bends

I’m tired. So tired…

 

At last asked support is strong

Hands I’ve had there all along

They bring back my happy song

And I thrive! I Thrive.
