Back to visiting old poetry…

Staring at a blank canvas

That once ran patterns

of reds, blues, greens, white

The colors have been washed away

She’s stuck inside her mind

Buried alive

Under fear, heartache

confusion and delusion

she continues to breathe

She’s trapped inside her mind

Without an exit

The weight of despair

pins her down to the ground

paralyzing her

Staring at a blank canvas

I know she’s in there

Under the drugs, the regret

I catch a glimmer of light

and hold my breath.

Thoughts on Yellow Paper

Before I was a blogger, I was a poet. It’s been a while since I’ve written poetry.  I found this recently, wrote it back in 2007.  It’s amazing to relive what I was feeling when I wrote this and make connections to how I feel and where I am today.  This is why I write.  To remember what I’ve been through on my way to where I’m going.

fighting the urge to fly;

to get into my car

with no destination in mind

to leave behind all I know and love

and trust

longing to see something


to discover ancient beauty

and modern awe

longing for a transient setting

Torn between love and wonder,

necessity and curiosity,

security and hunger.

Lost without the world to see.

First home away from home
First feeling of missing home
First time leaving everything behind
First chance to start anew

First interview

First long term boyfriend

First cycle begins again

Firsts become repeats
and seconds
and lasts
and somehow, new
