Depression

For no reason I want to cry tonight

I want to be wrapped in a ball

And sleep until

The emptiness passes

It’s worse when there’s nothing to fix

When the I my thing holding me back

Is me

Here and Now

Allowing myself to bask in the happiness and love from yesterday

There is work to be done

And looming stress in the future

But living in the here and now

Is what’s important today

December 9, 2022 in Cancun

Time closes on this chapter that is us

Beautiful and bright and brilliant

No need for mourning

Because the beauty

Never ends

So until tomorrow

Right?

I didn’t just throw this year away

Waiting for uncertainty

To become reality

I didn’t throw the year away

Right?

Change

The winds of change clobbered us all

Few had prepared

The rest of us were taken off guard

And had to scramble

Searching for scraps

And the pieces

To rebuild our lives

Ascension

Can we erase what we want to forget?
Tear the chains
Ascend into heaven

Elope

Meet me at sunset

Where we can’t be found

It’ll be our secret

Safe and sound

Broken promise

Broken promises

Like falling rain

Soaking the ground

Sadness. Loss. Pain.

Diving

Reflecting on who I am and what I want

And all the questions and answers I pursued

I realize relationships are simple

Composed of love and compassion, yes,

Communication, yes,

Respect and trust and friendship, yes

But compromises – that’s when you may part,

Despite everything else being there.

Know what you are willing to bend on

And what you are not

Is this relationship worth the sacrifice?

Can you wait just a few months, a few years longer?

Love isn’t an end all

There are many fish in the sea

You just have to take the risk and swim

Drowning may be inevitable,

But you’ll never know unless you take the dive
