I woke up to to a sunrise this morning.
Sunlight peeked thru my shades, hit my tears and reflected my
pain onto my pillow
The sorrow in my chest has subsided a bit
since I realized the other side of the mattress was cold.
I don't dream of happy endings.
That stopped the day I saw the glimpse of sparkle in your eyes
as you looked at her in line at the grocery store.
I'll be better
My fear of the unknown and loneliness
swirls around my fingertips
My temples pump with frustration
as I try to find my peace within.
All to show her, I adore her
Life is nothing without the comfort of
knowing someone cares about you.
The air is cleaner when I'm with her
My waves crash against her shore
She depletes and replenishes my energy
all at the same time.
