Momma's struggleMom I woke up this morning.Momma's struggle14 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I knew you were alone.
I could sense your heart was turning to stone
The years you spent in the alley, and park.
The days you spent with no love in your heart,
The days you stood awake at night.
Wondering if your sister was alright.
Wondering if you could have a family.
You used to play with the old doll house.
And you tried so hard to stay strong and quiet as a mouse.
You used to laugh on days when in the backwater of Florida.
You would climb the Orange trees on up.
Wondering if the stains would ever come off.
Stuck in hell, separated, and unloved,
Now you sit in your tiny one bedroom apartment.
With two loving daughters, and an ex.husband.
You spent nine years in his wrath.
Feeling pain in lies, and every broken commitment to his daughters in the path.
You left and took us with you.
And day by day we struggled to make it through.
We had the days when you would break down.
Crying about how daddy wouldn't send and money, in emotions of struggling you drowned
When the Adventures are OverWhen the world falls down, and I with it...When the Adventures are Over2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Will you be there?
When my leg gives out, and my hair need not be long...
Will you still fly with me?
When I meet my fate, and say goodbye to this world,
Will you take me into yours?
When my mind is whole and my heart is freed,
Will you help my spirit soar?
I've tried my very best to stay young, but I'm running out of pixie dust.
How do you do it so well?
My madness is indeed concerning, but that's something to discuss over tea.
Would you please pour me a cup?
We keep our childhoods close, we cherish them forever,
As protection from the futures we fear.
Thanks to the two of you, I never had to feel alone.
My friends were my heroes.
Do you remember the time I first fell down, how you acted as my guide?
Can you remember the games we used to play?
Do you remember the first time you helped me to fly?
Can you recount all of our duels?
If I ever lost my head, wandering hopelessly,
You helped me keep my hat.
As I aged,
Ein Gedicht vom KummerWillst du wissen, wie das ist,Ein Gedicht vom Kummer1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Wenn die Trauer dich zerfrisst,
Dein Herze in der Brust verzagt,
Dich ständig dein Gewissen plagt,
Wenn fesselnd stramm gewob'nes Leid,
Um dich sich legt wie Einsamkeit,
Dein Geist mit einem Schatten ringt,
Der gierig jedes Licht verschlingt,
Und obwohl so tief verletzt,
Kein Tränenfluß dein Kleid benetzt,
Du innen schreist, doch außen schweigst,
Und keinem deinen Kummer zeigst?

where I couldn't hear your breath behind me, couldn't feel your touch,
and it's strange because I haven't really felt like this, in any sort of way,
because while yes I've always been alone, but never lonely per to say,
I've been thinking of all I've loved, the ones I never see,
honestly, I checked up on all of them, saw they were happier than me,
not that I was jealous, nor held them to my ill-will,
I just now see how great their lives are and the shoes I could never fill,
I do want them to be happy, and I do want them to smile,
but fuck, couldn't they just have taken me the extra mile?
everyone's moving on, and I'm kinda stuck in time,
I'm starting to think that maybe I've aged past my prime?
maybe my story was meant to end in the past,
explains why everything is moving by so fast,
regardless, tonight I feel so lonely and it's eating me alive,
without the figure of you there, the demons have arrived,
