I waded through birch trees
winter dead and whispering in the cold.
The quiet loud in its announcement,
echoed in dark corners
I thought I had spoken out loud
and requested the calm answer my presence.
Tombstones, heavy with foreboding.
Unmarked graves and secrets kept
from nights with glow of fire and steam rising from tea.
Candlelight dances and shadows stretch as a hand
grasping those who enter
the floor wood succumbing with step.
A guest and a guest within
speaking with languid speech
and shallow of thought
And thought capture and imprison
Each day replacing the day before
Day before no more days.
NoExit cjh 2018.

Morning Dew by cjheery Morning Dew :iconcjheery:cjheery 5 1
I slept in your rose bed. Once.
I was cut but didn't mind the pain.
Blood flows, the river knows
Flowing inside me.
Depth of the wind we begin again
Fearless and stricken
Yet standing tall, through it all
Voice quickened.
The pulse is high
The pulse is low
Once rivers flow
You have no power to stop them.
Next stop on the locomotive
Will send you shivering
Waiting for the next call.
NoExit cjh18.

The War Will Be Won
The War Will Be Won
I taught myself
To see my depression
From the outside.
It is necessary for survival.
Imagining that I am separate
From that "voice".
That voice that is full of trickery.
That persists,
trying to cause my demise.
But there is a fire within
And I must attend to it.
I must fight.
I may lose a battle,
But I refuse to lose the war.
I've made my armour
These many years.
It is beaten up
But still protects me.
I gave up once.
Never will I give up again.
I will not make the suffering
Be for naught.
I deserve better
Than to become a statistic.
I am more than a number.
I have a face.
A face which contorts
Under the pressure
With lines of miles
Reflecting the journey.
I will take the beatings.
I will force myself to get up again.
NoExit cjh18.
