Beneath the Surface


Throughout my abandonment recovery process, I’ve had a lot of different emotions.  I’ve seen my lowest and I’ve often pondered reburying the pain.  Pushing through, however, is what I intend to continue to do.  As hard as it may be, it has to happen.

Tearing Down the Dam

Inside my body, you’ll find my soul
It’s a little bruised though, pain taking its toll
Like a dam in the river, bad energies stuck
Never leaving my body, always running amuck

I chose to ignore them, I chose to run and hide
Telling myself I was alright, to my own heart I lied
Now I take down that dam that I built back then
I have to go slow though, so the walls don’t cave in

At first it was tough, the water poured right out
‘I can’t handle this’, to myself I did shout
And although it’s still flowing and causing despair
I know I can handle it, I’m almost there

Could someone write
An entire poem about pink
Give me a minute
To ponder and think

Pink is the color
That girlie girls love
Beautiful and innocent
Just like a dove

Pink makes me happy
I’m sure it sounds silly
But want me to do something
Add pink……… No, really

A tomboy at heart
I never liked pink
I never was girlie
Not even a wink

A transformation happened
In my twenties somewhere
Started painting my nails,
Wearing skirts and ‘doing’ my hair

On my way through this change
I evolved and I grew
I discovered parts of myself
That I never knew

Those parts had been dirt covered
And held down by rocks
Once I spread my wings
I pulled them out of the box

The feeling was unique
I felt bold and so pretty
I came out of my shell
I became ‘girlie’ and ‘giddy’

Light pink is sweet
A dream color for a princess
Decorating her home
And making it the color of her dress

Hot pink’s a bit different
Energizing the room
It’s vibrance gives life
Make it the color of my tomb

One of my poems

What’s in a memory, a picture, a song
All sorts of reminders of things that are gone

Some memory’s are good
Some memory’s are great
Others make us tearful
Some make us faint

Memories are important
They help you move on
They remind you of the good times
Even those that are gone

They arrive in all sorts of ways
Some are a surprise
Triggered by something we here
Or see with our eyes

When sorting through memories
You may be surprised
At those you that you forgot
And the ones that gave you warmth inside

No matter the memory
The good and the bad
You must feel the emotions
The joy and the sad

You may not want to remember some
You may say how
But each played an important role
In who you are now

I am me because of my future
I am me because of my past
And although today I feel lost
I know it won’t last

My memories help me
They help heal my past
They remind me of the good
I love that they last
