And just for thought...
I stood, staring desolation in its face,
not blinking an eye to the empty chairs beside me.
I learned in the way of ghosts not really there,
the words they spoke in muted silence.
Whether in sunshine or moonlight, my arms became enough.
A man fell in love with me once, his wishes washing over me,
but I could not open my heart to him.
I know how to sleep in my own bed,
how to sit in a movie theater by myself,
how to quiet my own thoughts all by myself.
His desertion led to my own independence,
never glanced twice at him after that.
I learned how to stand on my own ground without fearing the sky falling on me.
My spirits entertain me when no one else will.
I conquered being alone even in a crowd.
I own everything about me now.
Whether I am full blue skies or gray clouds,
I stand, staring life directly in its eyes.
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.
