Rise Above

Rise Above Years have since come and gone When I childishly looked at the world - Then, age and realism dawned Causing my foolish heart to unfurl. A thirst to want to love and be loved, Was seemingly quenched And old ideas were proved wrong Lies poured and left me drenched. It would seem my … Continue reading Rise Above

Shimmer Of Hope

There are certain moments in a person's life that they can remember what they were doing on an exact day. August 6, 2016, which was one year ago today, is one of those times for me. It was the last time I've seen and hugged my 'wasbund'. I don't want to call him an 'ex-husband' … Continue reading Shimmer Of Hope

Hidden Strength

I meant to write this ten days ago As a way to mark a year passed Since the day you said I had to go - How this year has gone so fast.   That day came and went - And so did more days Without the memory's torment Part of me is amazed…   … Continue reading Hidden Strength

Without A Trace

Why Am I Here?

Looking in the silvery mirror As if I were asking a seer - Squinting to look clearer Whispering, "Why am I here?"   Keeping my gaze locked on myself, Haunted memories flood my mind… Heartbeat quickens, overwhelmed. Clenching my jaw, teeth grind.   Far too many reasons to quit, Countless struggles to remember - Lies … Continue reading Why Am I Here?

Set Adrift

During this time last year, I wrote on different stages of my thought process as I sought out help for my anxiety and depression. For those of you who have followed me over the years, you may recall how I bit the bullet and kept those appointments with my therapist. If you're new, here are … Continue reading Set Adrift

Vapor

Escaping deep inside my mind, Unsure of what will be uncovered - What secrets I might find Or if who I was can be recovered?   The tears that have run deep Is not simply because of you - There's a bigger reason why I weep, I forgot who I was - the person I … Continue reading Vapor
