For just one Moment~A Poem by Lily Mae
Sometimes in our own misery...we forget to open up our eyes to others pains and sorrows..xo
For just one Moment
With the winds of change on my back
the sea of uncertainty that I'm facing
for just one moment
could you see me?
Could you give too me in the
ways I have you?
Did you forget to ask or don't you
Do you know what it takes for me
everyday not to slice the blade deeply
into my wrist?
I do...I know the pain while having to
also make you smile...
For one moment could you see inside
the dark recesses of my torment...
you see...it's not only you who is suffering
Tears stain my face so often it's like
my own personal stigmata...burning acid
line like lay lines across a lifeless shadow
of what once was and the pain of what
will never be...
Did you know while making you smile
I'd walk the river...sit for awhile
and pray for strength to lie next
to my sacred waters...and cut myself
high and deep...just so I could peacefully
fall asleep in this secret place of my bliss?
Instead I lay at the bank...in the soft sand
and the sun beating down upon my face...
watching as the clouds in the blue sky
drift away...symbolizing my life
Have you ever...for just one moment
really ever taken the time to see me?
My selfish thoughts of death are set aside
as the clock tells me our time is approaching
I look forward to the little death
it somehow makes me feel the disconnect
from life...I so seem to know all to well
However, I'm smiling now...blooming
loving, sharing passion unbridled....
because I seem to love you
more then I've ever loved me~
For just one Moment...
