Chasing after the demands
dreams of others
having that sense of responsibility
obligation to please
I see myself with each moment growing more pale
and in the dark if I allow
the silence to quiet my thoughts
I can feel an arm around me
permitting me to feel
the loss of myself
and with the night’s tears dried
I sit typing before this mirror for my mind
to find myself solid again
my dreams again relevant.
Thanks again to The Gypsy Mama and all the others who join in the Five Minute Friday for your inspiration.
