Surviving the Night

Darkness, black as ink, arrives

leaving me alone with my thoughts

sole inhibitor of an island of memories.

 

Memories full of “what ifs” and excruciating longing

for a life too soon ended; I grieve.

A jagged sword of power painfully shoots through me

draining me of feeling.  Overcome with emptiness; void of emotion; I close my eyes

trying to block out heartache’s slow approach.

My attempts futile; my mind races on

I receive no reprieve; rest from my thoughts unobtainable

they gnaw at me bit by bit

leaving in their wake a hollow shell

forming a shadow; that now comprises the person

I have become.  Reminants remain, a glimmer of the past, that defined my previous self.

Knowledge dawns; I cannot become whole again;

memories can’t be recreated, erased;

thoughts can’t be silenced.

Changed forever, they created the person before you.

 

Night shadows lengthen dawn approaches;

a sigh of relief escapes my lips; realization that I 

endured another lonely night dawns.

One day strength will allow me to escape the lonely island of thoughts I’m stranded on; renewed for now I rise greeting the first rays of daylight.

 

 

Nature’s Cry

Trees release leaves, the fall wind blows,

Falling leaves mirroring the teardrops falling from my eyes.

Clinging safely to lashes wet with dewy droplets, a single tear tethers,

Like the remaining leaf clinging to the familiarity of a tree branch.

Afraid to fall, afraid to let go, afraid of the unknown.

Another month passes in my life,

Barely I notice the changing days on the calendar.

Struggling for an answer that I can’t find,

To a question repeated incessantly in my head.

I want to scream, to make this all stop,

The pain, the tears, the heartache.

Instead I find solace in the cool fall breeze,

Watching the falling leaves that are Earth’s tears.
