Inner Child

Post by Travis » Tue May 22, 2012 8:02 pm

Little one
Crouching in a corner
Hiding from something or someone
Reluctantly remembering
Blues and grays of yesterday
Emotionally drained
Nothing to say
Bruises from short fuses
Never seem to heal
The Notorious nightmare
All too real
Wake me from these dreams
Nothing is as it seems
Memories of melancholy madness
Scarred and stirred sadness
Pain suppressed
Wanting to be expressed
Wicked words waver
Thousands upon thousands
Grains of sinking sand
Heavily filling my shoes
A challenging journey for a child to choose
Overcome
Little one
Let go
The bloated bleak balloon
Watch it soar
The blues and grays
Dismal days
Gone forevermore…

Nicely written, an emotional ride from low to high of overcoming the past

My favorite part

I can related to those feelings
Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before
