Today was not okay-

Today was not okay-

image

Curled up.
Nowhere to run
No one to run to
The silence- haunting
Limbs- trembling
Face, stained
In all the right places.
Today- was not okay.

A while,
A long time it took-
Regained composure
Silence, still haunting
Limbs- exhausted
Face- weary;
Today- was not okay.

Relapsed-
An overdue setback;
Overtaking emotions;
Grim thoughts- engulfing
Alone- vulnerable
The thoughts won that time.

Today,
Was not okay;
Today,
The thoughts- raging;
Today,
She did get through it;
Today,
She knows she can-
Tomorrow will be okay.

A quake today,
volcano tomorrow;
Life is too short,
To live for the unknown;
The rifts form at once,
Upsetting- in a moment;
Leaving no stone unturned-
In their vehement destruction;
The quake comes unannounced,
Like the future tomorrow holds;
Live it up and drink it down,
For today is all that we know.
