Worse Than Overwhelming Sadness


Is the realization that you are just getting through the day

The week

The month

The year

And not because the next one might be better ... just because

Nothing to look forward to

No goal looming on the horizon

No promise of change

Just doing what absolutely must be done

And hoping that is enough

Sunday Secret


It is my greatest fear
Sometimes I see pieces of me ... spilling from him ...
And I worry
I hope he is better able to fight them than I was
