The verge of a depression
Feels like an economic recession
Its the ascension
Before the descension  
A slow mental digression
And my therapist says:
"While we're in session,
Do you have a confession?"
And I say, "No,
It can't be depression."

When I saw you again
You tasted like bitter wine
The faintest recollection
That you were once mine

It's the "could haves"
The "should haves"
That leave my heart in halves

With you I had my crescendo
And like all music
You found a new tempo

Nothing prepares you for meetings with old lovers.

In an age of strong female heroines
Be the small little hobbit
For there is greatness
In simplicity

I could never understand
What could force someone
To harm their sacred vessel
To take a knife to their canvas
Painting it the deepest red

But then again
My skies are blue
And theirs is gray
So maybe I don't understand
But I want to try

To all of you hurting, I pray for you <3

A delicately wrapped package
Was left on the steps of my abode
Waiting for him to come by
As I peeked out my window
But no one came
And the package lay unopened
And untouched

A heart made of ice
With no cold there is no warmth
I embrace the snow

Kirsten Claire Dec 2020
Sunlight through the trees
Cherry blossoms in full bloom
He is my meadow
