He Knows


Softly he brushes

The hair off her cheek

He tells her she is beautiful

And gently gives her a kiss

He knows the moment it happens

Her eyes give her away

The kiss ignites her passion

And she draws him back in

This time a deeper kiss

And he knows she wants him

But he lets her take the lead

Moving nice and slowly

Their bodies mingle

Intertwined as one

Her breath matching his

There hearts sharing a rhythm

And finally their passion is spent

Leaving the two of them

Empty of energy but

Blissful in their exhaustion

They fall asleep in each other’s arms

I have lost my ambition
My motivation is gone
I’ve got nothing left
So thoroughly exhausted
I need to find a reason
To continue on this path
It seems so endless
With no hope in sight
Will you help me
Stand by me
Give me your hand
Guide me along
Because I feel so

Day 12

I am exhausted… another day of wearing the mask to appear to be doing alright.  I forgot to take my meds this morning and the day just didn’t go as planned.  BUT there was some good that happened today.  My boyfriend started his vacation.  We can’t afford to go anywhere really and have no plans, but it should be nice to have him home to help on my rough days.  I just have to gather to courage to ask for help instead of hiding how I feel inside.  That is something I am working on…

Day 11 – 100 Days of Happiness

As a person who suffers from depression I have learned that I will have bad days, but to look at the little things as large accomplishments on those days… because in the middle of a depressive episode they are a big deal to get done.  Today I felt exhausted, defeated and alone, but I pulled together all the strength I had and stepped into the shower and got dressed – a minor accomplishment for most people.  I was physically more tired afterwards, but I felt I accomplishes something.  The laundry still waits, the dishwasher still needs to be emptied, those things can wait.  I hope tomorrow is a better day.  Today I was happy to take a small step in taking care of me.
