In over my head
I cannot deliver
In yesterday’s clothes;
Life stumbles into
Beg me to clip their wings
Then crash into splinters
Drowning at my feet
Screaming for mercy
Yesterday was beautiful–sunny and mild. I felt like doing anything and everything. On my feet. Until I couldn’t.
Unfortunately, D is a convenient target when things start falling apart. Which they do and did. It’s easy to pick a verbal argument with him (about him, of course).
It’s way more difficult to stop my tongue and ask myself how I got to this unhappy space. And what I must do right now to care for my aching feet.
Several days ago I posted Exiting the Room. It was, and still is, about my heart’s health. However, it’s also about exiting negative emotions or breaking vicious cycles that creep up on me. And giving D the break he deserves!
