Dear self, Tonight is hard. You are being flooded By intrusive memories, And your mind is muddled With self doubt and destruction. Vices beckon Like skeletons dressed as old friends And the emotional scars Sting just as much as the physical ones.
Sweet girl, You are tracing old marks In your skin Please Do not repave them. Remember all the times like these? Consumed by darkness that Eclipses the sun itself. How many times have you crawled out Of the trenches?
My darling dear, Do not doubt your resilience. We both know that Tomorrow will come And while I cannot promise it Will be brighter, It will still be new.
Today I logged on for the first time in nearly 3 years. I’ve been going through an incredibly difficult time lately, and I stumbled across a piece I wrote in 2016 titled “Something New” I’m so grateful I did, as it brought on the motivation to write again for the first time in what feels like forever.
This is the revised version, 5 years later. I made it a new post because I feel I am a different person today, and I wanted to have a record of my progress.
