Dear Father
I’m alone in a very scary place
And I’m not certain how I got here.
I lost sight of the footprints I was following
And wandered off the pathway you laid out for me.

The wind is cold and the sky is dark.
I just heard screeches from the nearby woods
And this path ends in only brambles.
Kneeling on the rocky ground
I beseech the Lord to rescue me.
He either doesn’t hear my cry
Or this is where I need to be
To learn to never take my eyes
Away from the light that guides me.
Day 5 trying to post this.  Feeling lost.

Heavy clouds is to rain,
A heavy heart is to tears.

something empty
in my life
feels less empty

The UnKnown
Sometimes tears feel like broken glass
Like pushing a gem out of my eyes
Causing them to scratch and burn
Causing my vision to blur
And my lashes to wet
Sometimes the gems that are tears fall and shatter
Like the first drop of rain on the pavement that is my bathroom floor
Soon causing a puddle of shimmering diamonds
There's beauty in the sad
And pain in the beauty

You hid pieces of yourself,
In places you would never look.
Hidden within those inner landscapes;
Unable to remember their names.

You are the sea.
You are cruel.
You are cold.
And I love you.

I know it hurts to be alive
At times you think of suicide
But here's my encourage to encore your life

Be happy of the fact you pushed on to survive
And please mind the appearance,
But I do care of the mental state of your mind

You're battling things inside
Battered from showing it outside
As with a cheery hie; behind a smile is a lot to hide
I just want you to know—in appearances not seen,
I appreciate your life

I only write,
I am in love
Falling apart.
