After a long day

After a Long Day

24 hours is all it takes
to break
my resolve,
break my back,
heart, soul, mind

6 months is a long time
to wake
my mind
teach me
to better utilise
the reds and blues of this big heart.

1 moment is all it took,
to lose you
your readership
I would persuade your return

I promise not to climb your tree
         nor spell out words that should not be
         nor make firsts of love
         nor thens of marriages, and babies in baby carriages


  1. Is there a "friend" that's more of a "friend", that can't be? I'm so sorry Elizabeth, I can't imagine how hard this is for you.

  2. It is very tough... but there were TWO talks today about not hating the trials that build you, and though I get so frusterated about the divorce not going through, I can feel a lot of growth... hmph.
