At the door

At the door

Day knocks

It screams

Through the quiet

You let yourself

Into the room

Full of dancing sunlight

You let the rays wash over you

Like it’s 

The only warmth

That has something

To give

The story takes place

In a day which never ends

This is the promise of night

Endless day

When the sun turns away

The moon makes

Its judgements

Reflecting on what the sun has said

You let yourself 

Out of the room again

Night thickens

Becomes a gel

Then a solid

You are gone 

To those dreams

The solid night

Encases you

As the

Night 

Dissolves

Into day

You remember

The things you

Tried to forget

Over & over

You remember them

And you convince yourself

That they are lies

Because lies are what 

Run this place

Where is everything

You search

Endlessly

Life can be 

So small sometimes

So infinitely small

And so infinitely

Massive

With no beginning

And no known

Ending

Except

The Inevitable

Sets in

Every end

Does have

A start

You sing to yourself

As you weep

And you pretend

It’s not 

The end 

At all

What if I can’t?

Good evening from here dear blogosphere. A little poem of affirmation to remind us that we are doing everything & we deserve rest too. 💜💜💜

Sometimes

When I’m tired

As I am now

I question

Everything

About me

I then remind myself

As gently as I can

As long as I rest

As I am now

I can always

Resume

My incremental

Trajectory

This was not

Meant for us

We did

Not know

Though

Through

We loved

We were

Not there

To find

The answers

To everything Everything changes Every flower opens Then goes away

Every sound

On waves

Leaves

To return

Another day

Another season

Another year

Years go by

Taking With them

Time […]

& then the flowers they bloom again
