And just for thought...
I look at this blank page knowing what I want to say
but it intimidates, causes me to fail.
I want to write a beautiful line for you,
the kind that circle in my head while I am driving
and unable to locate a piece of paper.
Just yesterday as I bathed my small daughter, brilliance came to me
but, by the time I tucked her peacefully into bed, the words were gone.
Lost with all the other award winning poems I will never write.
My feelings for you are simple.
I could just write that I love you but the poet in me needs more.
I know that you hurt right now, a place I have been a hundred times over,
but you always saved me before I fell too far down that rabbit hole.
Consumed by my trials, I forgot to see yours.
A plain apology will never be enough.
I can tell you that I am never leaving you and hope you believe me.
I believe in you, have always believed in you.
I am sure I will think of a beautiful way to say this once I start the car.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
