this a sad one folks...but I'm not that sad now...

This is how it begins

I can vaguely recall

certain familiar feelings

when beneath the normal

heavy air sits comfortably

embracing me

and it's warm in these sheets

of silent hours

where brave cowards

And becomes the

endlessness of being alone

bringing solemn visits,

the almost dreams

too far to reach out the door

they are breaths of losses

permeating reasons

to stay under

earth and forget that

dreams ever were

Conveyed very well.
To connect with the feelings you share in some of your poems can be heart-wrenching, but I'm happy to join you in all that you bare.
Very good poem.

Thank for that..I think you're one of the few that have gone on this roller coaster with me, through my writing..and it's comforting to have you read and share your thoughts with me...so I don't think 'thank you' is enough, but deep appreciation goes out to you my dear friend:)

much love to you,
