    trying to stand and
    secure myself
    shaky grounds
    keep swallowing me
    i'm treading lightly
    tiptoeing
    creeping
    stalling
    one false move
    i'll be back by you
    drowning next to you
    where nobody will approve
    while i raised we up
    you just constantly took
    nothing left in my cup
    not pride or worth
    style or. . .curse
    you still get my words
    my thoughts, our dreams
    my two little men
    staring straight at me
    wondering what mama gonna do
    she still so wrapped up into you
    can't think clear
    can't even hear prayer
    asking to call daddy
    even though they know
    he aint there
    she acting wacky
    yelling screaming cursing bleeding
    crying trying inside feel like dying
    holding it together
    on a prayer and a wing
    tied together with string
    someone needs to send in
    michawl landan
    hoping tonight as
    I close my eyes
    it wont be your smile
    i find hiding in the corner of my mind

    Heavy load to carry, and to know it's being carried and what it's doing is even worst. We do swallow a lot, now we got to learn to spit it out!!!
    Great piece sis.

    Oh my! This is so powerfully poignant! I get a little emotional reading poetry like this. This makes me wanna get you a babysitter and kidnap you on a "Girls Night Out."

    This made me wanna hug you, cry with you, and go flatten his tires or sumpn! lol

    This was somber but beautifully expressed.

    Great expression and flow
    Strong for the sake of those in need
    Including Yourself
    Your the one the Children needs.

    Skeltons creeping
    Around the room
    Are normal from relationships
    They can bring happiness or gloom

    There was something that made it worth it
    There is always somethings to keep
    Always find the salvage in everything
    Take that, leave the rest
    Drop the heart ache seek your dreams.

    Thank You for Sharing Randee
