Reality

Sitting on the dock with my pain

staring at the stars above,

alone.

Locked in an endless cycle

of ‘I told you so’s.’

This is not the first time

nor shall it be the last

where I tell myself

you will not fall this time.

And each and every time

I fail.

Tears slide down my cheeks

as finally do I accept,

the reality,

the truth that comes

and put the fantasy to rest.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
