Monday Musings: Save Yourself

Monday Musings: Save Yourself

Save Yourself

There is no one who is going to save you here.

If you are broken, the pieces are yours to pick up.

If you are afraid, it is up to you to conquer your fear.

There is no knight in shining armor, and you do not have to wait to be saved.

Save yourself because no one else is going to do it.

Monday Musings: Part Two – What Lies Below

Monday Musings: Part Two – What Lies Below

Part Two – What Lies Below

You’ve gone away for awhile;

I know you’ll be back.

I just have to wait;

I miss you so bad.

 

I wonder how your life is;

Do you have someone?

The thought makes my heart ache;

To you, am I special?

 

My heart almost stops;

My thoughts halt.

Did I just think that?

This is your fault.

 

And that makes me smile;

When did I last feel this way?

Before he left me;

You left me here to stay.

 

I think I’m falling again;

Last time I was afraid.

I was afraid to let go;

Am I afraid of what lies below?

 

I was afraid to fall too far;

That things would become blurry.

I can see fine now;

Will you catch me?

Monday Musings: Interruption – Reprieve

Interruption – Reprieve

Tears streaking my face,

I look at you.

Why are you so kind?

I wish I knew.

 

Wiping away my tears,

Please don’t…

You smile at me.

I can’t… Or I won’t.

 

You pull me close.

I think I can breathe.

Just hold me, for tonight?

You are such a relief.

 

You don’t let go.

I can’t stop crying.

When was I held like this last?

I thought the world was ending.

 

Maybe it’s just the beginning.
