I thought we had bid farewell
instead, while sweeping
under one of our rugs
its existence glowed
like an October prank
My sanity experienced
an immediate tug
The spirits of my shoulders
dropped with great speed
and the weight of their tears
caused my heart to sink
into a dark abyss
with rejuvenated fears
I remember being thrilled
with its absence
dancing through my days
now I look at my reflection
in the mirror and see traces
of a familiar, emotional maze
The need to blame
is so very strong
I know it’s not right
but I long for someone
to offer their hand,
catch my pleading words
as they roll from my lips
and for a face with kind eyes
to tell me this is just
a vivid nightmare,
not a rewritten script
Repeatedly, I reach for strength,
at times, feeling my fingers slipping
As I kneel, with folded hands,
my heart begs for another error
I silently pray for this presence
to stop haunting our days
and for a beautiful soul to be spared

Keeping you in my heart and prayers. xo!
Thanks so much, my sweet friend! Many hugs and blessings to you, too!
I hope this isn’t something that you’re really going through, though I sense it is.
Unfortunately, yes, but we’re taking one day at a time, cliche, but the healthiest thing to do. Thanks for stopping by, Binky. 🙂
Very sorry to hear that, Lauren. Taking things as they come is probably the best way to handle it. I hope you get some better news soon.
Aww…thanks, Binky, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and positive wishes..I hope so, too, and until then, I suppose writing about it once in awhile helps, also. Take care!
Very moving Lauren, and I can feel fhe pain in your words.
I see you used the word “cliché” on a previous comment, but cliché or not, “one day at a time” is often the only glue that holds us together.
Its good you have writing as an outlet for your feelings; I think they are another bit of the glue that holds us too.
Thanks so much, Chris, and you’re right about “one day at a time” being the glue…and of course, writing, will never let us down..Much love and many hugs to you! ♥
Lauren, a sad poem but one with the light of hope peaking through. I embrace you in my prayers always…hugs and blessings my sister!
I know, pretty sad, Wendell, but there is always hope peaking through and I will always embrace your prayers…thank you so much and I send you hugs and blessings, in return…
Powerful poem. Full of emotions.
Thanks, Kim, more emotions to come…xx
Sometimes you just have to let the pain steep inside until it’s ready to be “let go.” 😉
Well said, thanks, Sandy! 🙂
I hope you’re okay Lauren. Although we have both had different journeys I can see myself in this a few years ago. I hope it’s never rewritten again xx
Thanks, Bianca, and I’m okay…it’s something we found out a year ago that was bad, to say the least, but can’t go into detail here…anyway, there’s a lot of gray area and answers we’re seeking, so this cloud still looms and may for a long time. Life is good, but occasionally, a darker poem might come out of this..I do hope it’s not rewritten for you, too! xx
