an impending meltdown

train on a fast track

heading for a collision

hidden from view

dreams i cannot reveal

emotions i must conceal

thoughts i cannot think

words i cannot speak

the sting

the sun rising in the east

trail of tears along the road

sparkle like slivers of glass

stinging the spirit

fading…

no more does she see

the life inside which once thrived

fading into waves

the tempest

so heavy and gray

turbulent and unsettled

storms inside the soul

the inner voice

” ” “

only i can hear

the badgering and disdain

from past and present

i long for silence

one day

i stand here with empty hands,

never warm

and

always alone.

they used to hold two little ones,

now grown up

and

on their own.

i stand here with an open heart,

never wanted

and

always alone.

wondering why

it has never been enough.

instead,

time and tears

have turned it stone.

i stand here with a crowded mind,

never quiet

but

a resounding, incongruous drone.

oh

how i wish for the day

when silence prevails,

i am at peace

and

no more –

alone

evasion

_______

_______

always running far away

hiding oneself in vain

never facing the monsters

the road has crumpled

in the dark

…..

alone in the dark

my mind runs circles

plagued by many thoughts

another night – no sleep
