A Poem by Paladin4life

This is just a little description of my day thus far. This poem is not anything deep or special, just the meanderings of my sleepy mind today. I hope you enjoy!


Another day my eyes open

What day is it

Is it time for work for church or something else

It was something else

I climb out of bed, but awake isn't the right word for my condition

Blurried eyed and clumsy yet I have never had a drink

Just up a little too late I guess

I go about the day's business drowning out the voice within

A few hours later my immediate tasks are complete

Now the voice, the feelings will no longer remain quenched

From the depths of my soul floods waves of emotion

Feelings reflecting my current state

I have loved twice and liked a few times

Yet always On my tax return I check single

I was surprised at their intensity.

My body is tired and my soul is too

I don't have the strength

At least not today

I force Pandora's lid to close for one more day

Perhaps some other time I can process

Another day I can purge away the lonliness and dispair

But for today I took a nap instead

Just a little one but It was enough

The cumbersome emotions regressed like the tide

I am not rid of them by any means but I will live

In the absence of grief I feel content

On another day I shall pursue love

At another time I will seek my soul mate

Not today though, at least not actively

My eyes brighten as my heart's burden slips beyond my consciousness

At least for the day this blessing is enough

Don't worry, I know you'll find her someday.

I will pray the Lord leads you to your one and meanwhile that He guards your heart from further pain.
