Any One of Us

I get it now

that feeling of being overwhelmed

the sound of a racing heart beat

and the need to get out

of the house,

get away from home

because it’s crowded,

in your thoughts,

in your physical presence –

but you are not alone

I will always,

always,

be there for you.

April Fool

One year ago

today,

but it wasn’t

funny –

nor foolish,

no tricks

no laughter,

only

surprise –

tears, worry

and

fear…

and

an overwhelming sense

of

sadness

and bewilderment.

I Bleed Too

Your words,

cutting through my soul

making my spirit bleed

tears waiting to fall.

You have

no idea of my pain,

as my chest heaves heavy,

my mind cluttered.

Did I?

Did I bring on this hate?

Without ever knowing  your past

your pain?

Never would I

no reason no personal gain,

or agenda do I have,

only the pain

of your words.

Who Am I?

There were so many times

I wish I’d made a different decision,

I wish I had been

able to communicate better…

Instead,

I really tried to act

like I knew everything..

I know now that I didn’t –

I told lies,

I stole money,

and clothes,

and

the car…

I snuck out the

window at night,

to meet my best friend

and

boys..

I drank,

I smoked,

I cheated

on boyfriends…

Now,

I try to listen,

to observe people,

situations,

maybe make a difference

to someone

who is like

I

was…
