Oh How I’ve Grown


Falling asleep

Again, appearing like most every night

The darkness surreal, not a pinch of light

The moon finally rises in the wide-open sky

Shining so bright to expose all the lies

Deafening silence, what has occurred?



Opening the eyes, the sights are absurd

Exploding behavior, pounding the walls

Erratic bellowing, frightened terminally appalled

My voice would quaver but it cannot be heard

Walking on eggshells, no, broken glass tonight

Wishing for wings to fly out of sight

The Fantasy of You that was held for so long

Did not have madness invoked by the unknown

Did not have constant playing of dead songs

The crazy love that was felt, lingers prolongs




The songs of the birds sing outside, the dawn has awakened all that has cried

A beautiful spring day blossoms with cheer, my heart still sinks, it’s been nearly a year

The meaning still hazy, the reasons unknown, changes the pathways, but oh how I’ve grown….

Much Love Much Life
