Start Again

Drowning;

Clawing at the air as life

Threatens

To bury you alive.

It hurts doesnt it?

Not being in control,

On the end of a remote,

Held by the hands of

Them.

You and Them.

Different ends of the scale,

Tipping off balance,

As you try to go on.

That cold feeling inside as the pain,

Builds

Up.

Twister of emotion,

Gathering energy as you move.

As it moves.

As they act.

You want to give up dont you?

You want to curl up in a corner,

Hide away from the world,

And shut your eyes tight,

Against the light.

You want to let the emotions,

And the pain out,

Let it slide from under closed eyelids,

warm

and

fragile

on

your

skin.

Let it.

Dont be afraid to close your eyes,

And look into the dark,

As the emotions overwhelm

And stream out in a flood of tears.

Let it.

Release the hurt and feel it leave your body.

Wear yourself out sobbing into your pillow.

Leave yourself breathless and tired,

Empty and shivering.

Then

When you've cleansed your mind of pain and hurt,

Get back up.

Dry your eyes,

And go on with life

Yesterday was filled with tears and sorrow,

But tomorrows a new day

Look to the sky,

Its waiting for you.
