Dear Therapist…

Sometimes, all you can do is lie in bed, and hope to fall asleep…..before you fall apart.

Crumpled sheets lie all over my desk and every thought seems trivial,
The burned bits form the aroma, as my confidence becomes menial.

I question my existence as I drown in the alcoholic haze,
I realise the futility of hard work while the ceiling catches my gaze.

You see, I can’t scream “I need help” cause then they question why,
That question keeps me up at night yet my answer’s just a sigh.

I know I’ll have to return to this maze even though the constraints make me drop to the floor,
But the truth is that I just can’t keep wishing “this too shall pass” anymore.

Sometimes I just want to lay on the street and drown the noise of the cars,
All I wanna do is open my arms and fall into the City of Stars.

The Truth Resonates

The brightest faces have the darkest souls…

The morning glory never showed her scars,
The high branches could reach the stars.

All looks so mighty, her green leaves shined,
But soon the fall came, fearful she whined.

Now her looks are gone, her body is bare,
Her roots are cold, her mind so scared.

Living with secrets so hard to dig,
She only grew with fake smiles which broke like her weak twig.

Grandma finished the story with a sigh,
The children were wistful for the tree not soaring high.

But kids what we learn is to never be ashamed,
Come out with your problems, maybe some might have the same.

We live in this obliviousness that we forget to care,
A little smile can lead to a long way somewhere.
It’s a path to choose that is right,
We all feel pain and someone’s may just be too white.

Help yourself and help others to live,
There’s love for all and so much more to give.

Passing the Horizon

Aren’t you tired yet?
Just let go…

Blinding her glasses and soaking her hair the rain kept pouring along with her tears,
Straining the scream she dropped on the floor as she let go of her redundant fears.

Then something dawned on her as the drops played a melancholic sound
She realised that she can’t hold the barriers anymore and needs to stop looking for what’s already been found.

She picked up herself and ran with the wind feeling the heat of the sun with the  cool rain,
Passing the horizon she let go of her old self and the world she thought was mundane.

The rainbow opened up its arms as she fell through seven doors just so out of one closet she could come,
She finally felt like herself again as the rain cleared up and the sun began to hum.

The Tale of a Cold Heart

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure…… Sorry, can’t agree….They become scars.

The road was crowded, as we anxiously sat in the car,
It was the first time you held my hand,
Later that memory became a scar.

We used to sit by the fireplace, as you recited your poems in a warm deep tone,
I fell more for you each time,
That feeling had always grown.

You smiled when I winked at you, from across the school hall,
Yet now I cry,
Whenever those memories envelope me like a pall.

I can still sense your warmth, in the midst of this cold burial ground,
You’ve been gone too long, You seem too far,
But I still can perceive you around.

I prayed for forgiveness as your soul slowly started to depart,
I remember how I held your hand so tight,
Yet now I’m sitting here, telling the sad Tale of a Cold Heart.
