struggling, tumbling
breaking
bumbling
tripping, stumbling
gripping,
wondering.
balancing.
recovering.
standing.

stretching.
breathing... ...
Seeing, feeling.
smiling.
moving.
Lying here, trying here
to be something
to be strong
a grounding foundation
something to build upon.

not so easy as it sounds.
to put ones own feelings on hold
to help another
with feelings untold.

struggle and break
to love and make
this thing once beautiful
again

its less about myself
than it has ever been.
and lost in this
i am

the path less traveled
beaten by few feet
barely seen,
only really felt.

trudging up, and through
arms, guarding my face 
as the trees try
to turn me back.

Suddenly, a break
light ahead, i think
maybe a reprieve?

but only, i see
i'm right back on the main road.

again i went.
walking in circles.

head down, i head on
up the road,
defeat in my eyes
i cry out, "where is my guide?!"

Day

twinkling rhyming, moon beams shining

replacing, in a way

the light, of the former, day.

through blackness of night, faint stars turn bright

to shake away,

the dust of day.

beloved ties, heartfelt made, under night skies

hold tight, even

through light of day.













starlight, star-bright, 
first star i see tonight

light the way
guide my sight

i wish i may 
i wish i might

break from this mess
escape from this night

my wish
oh this night

unsure steps
tentative, ness
moving on slower
less
not so much as before
but a little more careful
stress
not too much or
a break will occur
loss
the start of it all

hooray sadness, aloneness
the feeling of a soloist
climbing alone, no rope to secure
if i slip, or miss my next hold
a long fall down 
it will be
so i must press on
reach and
move up
until.
slip...
