If only I could see past the pain that stalks me.

If only I could feel the warmth of relief and the sustenance of hope.

If only I could convey, explain, interpret the pain that I feel.

If only it was no longer such an effort.

If only the support was closer, a whisper away.


My mind is in an endless dance with my memories and my present.

My heart aches for the simplicity that once was.


I have fought. I have pushed. I have asked. I have demanded. I have paused. I have rushed. I have proclaimed. I have suggested.


My rest will come in the Morning.  My relief will come in the morning. My soul will sustain, my heart will remain, my hope wont complain.  Please release me from this roller-coaster.
