Waving, Not Drowning

Waving, Not Drowning

Drowning in memories and dreams,

I fall deeper and deeper into the depths of despair,

I wallow in scenes from the yester year,

Desperately trying to make sense of it all.

Suddenly I head for the light,

Break free of the crushing weight of the water,

I gasp for air, my face wet with tears,

Know that I will continue to dive until I am safe.

So down I go again, diving deeper and deeper than ever before.

The answer is there, the truth laid bare,

I will be able to breathe underwater.


Love is like barbed wire

Everyone wants a piece of me,

I lay myself bare, open to their needs,

They pick me apart, feasting at will,

Like vultures on roadkill.

I am safe in my home,

Safe with the love I have chosen,

Although, that love too,

Can be wrapped in barbed wire,

Surprising me with his words,

I turn away bleeding,
