Eye Level With The Dirt

Standard

It

Wasn’t one big fall.

It was gradual.

A slight slip here.

A trip there.

Hands missing the railing,

Reaching and flailing.

Words left

Unattended,

Frightened inside.

Smiles left unshared.

Passing by averting eyes.

Little by little.

Skirting around the edges of hurt.

Vulnerabilities slowly

Caged and protected.

Until you found yourself

Eye

Level

With the

Dirt.

More Than A Tear

Standard

I shed a tear today.

For all the years

I lived

And

Loved

In fear.

And I forgave myself for the mistakes

I made.

For the feelings I kept

Trapped

In

My

Throat.

For the times I gave too much

                                                                        Of

                                                                                                    Me.

I allowed myself,

To

Love

Me

For every little moment

That I had traded bits of my soul

To

Keep

The

Peace.

Truth be told,

I

Shed

More than

                                                                   A

                                                                                                Tear.
