Navigating heartache and pain.

A Buried Treasure


With each step I take, I feel the sand sifting  through my toes


It’s at that moment a strong gust of wind blows


Now I hear the waves crashing into the shore


Reminding me of these feelings I’ve never felt before


My heart starts to race, from the daunting reality I must face


Because of the duplicitous way you left, which I’d call grand theft, coupled with me caring, is now tearing my heart apart


How do I begin to heal, when I’ve lost my thrill 


Feeling like a lonely pawn on the cusp of dawn


I don’t have it in me, to pretend as if I’m happy


Who knew I could hurt to this degree

Introspection is the road back to being healthy


I will find someone kind to remind me of the place I’d rather be


For what I yearn, I have to relearn, what it is about me that brings me pleasure


My heart, lock, and key, hidden away safely, until I’m emotionally ready

Must remain a buried treasure
