When the pain is too much

don’t run and hide

just come home

When life’s burden is at your feet

don’t pick it up

let me carry some

When you want to run away

because you don’t feel good enough

run to my waiting embrace

When you feel lost

with nowhere to go

know that home is where my heart waits

I wished my love

could fill her

until there was no need

for the  therapeutic

cut of the blade

*I sometimes find myself attracted to those in some sort of pain and wish I could take it away.  The title made me think of a few cutter friends of mine.


The Chameleon

Months after the fall
I realized
I could not turn into the Chameleon
to get who I thought I wanted
I would have to be brave
I would have to be

*I read the below from my buddy Terri at Bone Sigh Arts and it got me thinking about how I was after my divorce; about what I would give up to not be alone. It took a while for me to realize the price was too high to not be myself.
