    My moon is so blue
    My Universe turned inside out
    Can’t deny the melancholy inside
    And I can’t say why my heart feels so heavy
    So I sit contemplating my life
    Watching as it fades into shades of midnight blue…


    Today my life is in a state of disrepair
    Feeling as if I could lose everything
    Feeling as if I have nothing
    I feel lost and confused
    Down and out
    No more pretending
    Stripped bare
    Ashamed
    Humiliated
    Pride reduced to ashes
    As I think of the reflection in the mirror
    B*tch
    Wh*re
    You are still beautiful…

    Lonely sighs
    Watery eyes
    Thinking on every moment of weakness
    Cruelty
    Savagery
    I’m watching my life dance before my eyes
    Shimmering misty images
    Watching, waiting, breathing
    Merely existing
    Surviving in the shadows
    Where the sun does not warm the aching
    Atmospheres of my heart
    Sometimes I wish I could rip open my soul
    And show every scar
    Wear them blatantly on my skin
    So people can read my story
    Condemn me or console me with their eyes
    Let the man I love kiss the traces of fear and hurt away
    Wondering sometimes if God is just playing a cosmic joke on me
    Wondering what he thinks of me
    Feels toward me
    Am I still His Child?
    All the insecurities and impurities come pouring out my pen
    Lines drenched with 23 years of bittersweet womanhood
    I can’t help the way I feel
    I don’t love myself sometimes
    And it’s okay
    Growing pains
    Trying to find myself between smudges on my soul
    Remembering the sparkling innocence of yesterday
    Someone hold me
    Someone love me
    Because today I can’t
    Sometimes I sit and watch my life fade
    Into shades of midnight blue…

    My moon is so blue
    My Universe turned inside out
    Can’t deny the melancholy inside
    And I can’t say why my heart feels so heavy
    So I sit contemplating my life
    Watching as it fades into shades of midnight blue…

    (this was deep)

    Someone hold me
    Someone love me
    Because today I can’t


    wow.....such emotion........I've felt this, but with
    the rising of a new day...the blue moon can be gone
    just that quickly............this flow was very emotive, I really felt this!
