Dear Cowgirl you bared my very being in this write. I could have said these very words myself...this is so accurate and spot on I really felt the words as they unfold line by line. Just the right structure too.
There is nothing wrong in admitting you are exhausted, each of us does. Breathe it out and continue to be strong. ~much love to you~
Sweet beautiful Lady :) thank you so much for the amazing comment, nomination, and the love!! I appreciate you so much! <3 and you're right. I will try my best to breathe and be strong, as long as you do, too! Thank you, again!
Well.. This is a different side to your hyperactive self, though I've gotta honestly say that this is a good write. Describes me in a way also. Pretending can be very exhausting, but sometimes pretending to be happy makes others happy which in turn makes you happy because your pretend happiness made them happy. Food for thought :)
My favorite Aussie :) you make me laugh, lol. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment. I suppose as long as the happiness turns out true in the end for both parties, that's what counts :) thanks again!

Damn it - I was going to nominate this piece when I reached the end but that greedy and selfish mossgirl (Mel I think her name is) got there first, lol.
How lovely to see you back on PnQ with a wonderful, heart-felt poem. The tough times of life, and how we deal with it and you have powerfully come back with an emotional piece of writing.
Much love and warmth
Ah Ren, this is so very relatable. Trying to be strong when you don't feel it is so exhausting and the lack of sleep it causes makes it all so much worse! It's a cruel cycle. Wishing you some restful sleep if nothing else! :-) x
Ren....its been a while since i've been on here...but always kept reading and without meaning to sound like an ass or a two sided compliment, your writing (as in the recent posts) seems to have such an impact it is CrAzY gOoD!
I love this write and as always is filled with vivid images and thought provoking emotions.
