- Front Porch
The day seemed endless - trapped in the cobwebs of my mind,
Haunting me with memories of the very worst kind
Trying to tread above water while being pulled down,
Into the depths of dispair - struggling not to drown
Tears flowing freely from grief-stricken eyes,
Pondering all the questions - especially the whys?
My heart breaking into pieces so tiny and small,
Until i felt no heart left at all
I was frozen in a time and space so bizarre,
Feeling her so close and yet so far
Whispering her name as if she could hear,
Hoping somehow to draw her near
I payed for peace and an end to the pain,
Knowing I’ll see her sometime again
When the day was mercifully over and gone,
I picked up the pieces of myself and went on.
