lost

sometimes a spirit breaks little by little
hurtful words, bad decisions, reckless actions…
the down side of daily life

my soul is weathering

stretched too thin… sometimes
almost feeling about to give out

it is the loneliness more than anything

my mate’s soul is far too reaching
my best friend is strained too tight herself
I cannot and will not burden her

I am so tired of putting on my face
so done with extending the unappreciated
unreciprocated gestures of simple kindness
to those certain few

some days I just want to sleep…all day

no metaphors for these thoughts tonight
just writing out my heart
hoping…needing someone to hear me
feel me, and understand

it will pass
all things do

but for now
I am bowing my head
with folded hands

blowing dandelion kisses
while making wishes
on stars

lost
