Meet me in a poem Somewhere between the lines Where the rhythm roams… Find me in a verse Don’t get lost in the rhymes Or repetition heard… Look for me where emotion evoked phrases exist Locate me where expression and imagery persist… Encounter me in the heart, the home Feel me in the art of the poem
Sometimes I feel invisible Did I just disappear I scream and I yell But no one can hear And then I wonder Am I still here? I feel forgotten Like I don’t exist I fight to be seen I try, I persist Am I slowly drifting away Do you no longer see my heart Right here on display?
I miss driving & it’s independence. I miss walking without a Walker or assistance. I miss dancing around without the fear of collapsing. I miss friends & seeing people. No one visits, no one’s asking. But I suppose in actuality it’s really not that bad It’s just sometimes, I feel overwhelmingly sad
And the biggest thing that broke my heart Was watching yours shatter I tried to keep the pieces together But it didn’t really matter The damage was done My oath to protect you, Broken I never wanted any of this for you To have your heart break open If I could fix it with my words, well they would already be spoken.
Somedays I’m okay But today is not somedays And then when it turns night That’s when my brain likes to play Tricks on me and my memory Darkness creeps in every crevice Tainting everything that is precious You’d think I’d learn some lessons But I just need more sessions Of Therapy Maybe I’ll find some clarity Find some familiarity Because primarily This will only last temporarily And soon I’ll be sitting in my serenity
