It's Raining

by Maple Tree   Nov 27, 2017

My withered hands bare cracks
of smiles gone unnoticed, circles
drowning within eyes that have
seen more than a woman should see.

I hold my coffee close, so the steam
forces me to choke on life one more day,
and those memories of childhood; still
hauntingly familiar, unkind mementos.

You forget who you are when writing
details of painful rain showers and
thunderstorms, crumpled paper
fills a waste basket full of emotion.

My lip quivers when the dark night sets in
because I need to expose this knife within
my heart, I can't live this nightmare alone;
I'm not as strong as people think....

    Lovely Andrea,

    No one is that strong or tough to go through everything alone. There are some thorns that pricks us so hard we feel we may never be able to get back up again. Each prick does leave a scar but the scar is only their to remind us where we've been and how far we came. The pain doesn't last always I promise.... Take care love. Congrats on the win!

    Sorry it's taken me so long to comment.
    you know my indolent behavior gets in the way. LOL :)

    Dear sweet Andrea...
    The first time I read this stunning write I could not form the right words to comment, and instead read it over and over again with tears in my eyes. I still feel like I can't grasp the right words, especially for such a heartfelt write that just knocks you right in the feels and nestles closely to your heart. Sometimes there just aren't any words. So I send you so much love and warmth, and as many good and positive vibes as I possibly can. You're never alone, and we all love you!! Congrats on the win, and I truly wish you peace and healing <3
