Shattered, Pieces of Me

And so it has been written,
my world,
so hard it has bitten,
to myself I will keep curled
and into the darkness,
fully I will be submerged

Excruciating rise in fear
rushing wildly like an electrical current
ready to instill a shock so rare
into what was once whole and vibrant
but now a shell, absent, vacant as I glare

Into the mirror feeling lifeless, gasping for air
knowing this burden, heavy to bare
will be forever a weight carried with no room for error
that once fleeting moment, now a glimpse of despair

How can I be blissful , when the future appears so grim
how do I get through this, fear and negativity filled to the brim
shattered across the floor, all hopes for more
pieces of me scattered like a jigsaw
will I ever arise to renew and restore?

With Wondrous Eyes

The beauty of the ocean,
so wide and vast
The wind in my hair, carelessly blowing past
The sun beating down fresh on my face
The sand between my toes, well in its place

Such serene simplicity lies
Bold blue blustering skies
Waiting watching with wondrous eyes
Answers to curiously culminating whys

I look to the skies, hoping for a sign
To calm my racing heart and mind
For I long to know where you are
To hear your voice, to know you are just fine
