The Break Room

by Maple Tree   Dec 30, 2017

A hint of sunlight teases my hollow eyes;
for a few minutes, I am ok, content.

To be alone in a room with dingy, blue curtins
is what I need these days; a moment alone with spirits.

I'm a spiritual woman, but I'm angry- not afraid to admit that.

My God's live in nature, but in that dingy room,
my aura is filled with fuel to carry on....

That voice I hear doesn't have a name,
but the whispers keep me going, day after day-

Call it what you will, but for me, it's a light
In a room of darkness and it's what I need
to get through this nightmare I'm living.

    A heart breaking piece that brought tears to my eyes. I wish that God would have mercy and send you a miracle. It makes no sense. Sending you love and prayers and all my best wishes for strength and peace. Milly x

    Dear Andrea my heart goes out to you and I wished I could take some of that pain away. Yes you are a very spiritual woman and it is ok and understandable that you are angry. It takes time take all the time you need. This dark room is perhaps what you need right now. Hugs to you
