Untitled Poem #10

Time slows
stand still
watch the birds fly away.
Take moments
turn away from this pain.
thoughts turn
no longer wanting
needing only
to not feel like this
Grey landscape
I plod along
head down
there is no where else to go.
Century upon century
you will find us all alike
a closed off heart.
Colors are gone
tears slip and flow.
Stare at me not
look away
I would rather fade
lost in the dark
than stay here another day.
November 27/18
Picture was taken by me summer of 2017.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
