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....

    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
