This is a hero’s journey
Your eyes not seeing,
Only seeing what you want
You force yourself to wait for happiness one more day.
You force yourself to be ok
There’s an awareness,
The promise of new beginnings all around,
But you‘re shivering in a chill of winter
The power of positive thinking does not numb This
Does not flood this pain
This pain demands you
Be Here Now.
Warps your body into fetal position
Slices you raw
Love may be a hit and miss but this pain
This pain is a hit and run.
