Time Out From the Negative

The ebb and flow of daily life,

sometimes can drive you mad.

If only there was a way you see,

to eliminate the bad.


The first thought is to just retreat,

and to hide yourself away.

You wait and you wonder will this be enough

to keep the bad at bay.


Then someone comes along,

do you dare to let them in?

They try and try and try some more,

your heart is what they want to win.


You think that maybe this will be the one,

that can make it all seem right.

You dare to hope, you dare to care,

no longer alone at night.


Just when you settle yourself into

that comfort zone you crave;

the rug is pulled out from under your feet,

and your whole world starts to cave.


So now you are back at the place you began,

wounded and broken and lost.

At what point do you stop and just flat give up,

for it surely is not worth the cost.


Is this the ebb or is this the flow,

something I simply cannot figure out.

So now it is time to retreat once again,

of this i surely have no doubt.
