Is That Really Me

I write when I am happy

I write when I am hurt

I pour out my feelings in words

To make the day complete

There are days though

When I feel someone else take over

And the words spew forth

Full of anger, pain and hate

I study the words and wonder

Thinking I couldn’t possibly feel like that

But there are the words

Written right in front of me

Today I hated myself

And tomorrow I fear the same

If I can’t slow down

This awful pain


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – study

A Friend Indeed

Your words become lost in my ears

It’s a soothing sound that drowns the pain

I focus on your eyes to read their sincerity

study your hands as they aid in your message

It all adds up to make me feel more at ease

It is not what you are saying as much as how

With emotion hidden behind the words

Implied love and support showing through

Your friendship means the world to me

I’d be lost without your encouragement
