The radio singing to me

I thought of you

Flashes of memories

Seep from my brain

The carefree days

When there was no pain

Sitting on your shoulders

You put on a happy face to hide stress
But to ignore doesn’t make it go away
Bottled up it doesn’t make it hurt less.

Cinderella

by Heather's Starting End

A Style of theme not common for my blog, but here is my Cinderella

cut

To him the Child born
Without much time in between

The Prince worked hard
Cinderella was at home
With castle help
At her beckon call
Freedom left to roam

Missing the sound
Carefree giggle
Whispered confidences
Baleful looks

In front of the tube

Spent with my princess
Watching a movie, the TV
Hanging out on the swings,
Precious moments
Making treasures
In my heart

Darkest Hour

 

There’s a fine line between

welcome dawn, chorus of

optimism floating through

open window, and dark,

aphotic moments before

when divorce from reality
