Tears escape
traveling over pale cheeks
lost within this
yet unable to discern why?
Days have been good.
Very very good.
When I feel like this,
unable to exercise
I begin to fear.
Fear that after all my hard work
I am falling
back to the beginnng of my time.
That this lovely dream
that I have built
is exactly that,
a dream that I will awaken from.

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.

    1. Thank you. Am unsure why but have had an unexplained bout of tears which lead to the poem. In therapy I was told to just allow the feeling to roll over me and it is okay. V also informed me that it is totally okay to have leaky days. The fragile feelings seem to be passing.

      1. Absolutely. We all have down days. You shouldn’t cover up the feelings…Just accept them. But it doesn’t hurt to be reminded that you’re doing great and you’re in control of your life…Even if you’re not in control of your emotions sometimes! 🙂
