Loved for the Black Dog- #Poem #Poetry

Be the song

Become the feeling

Live in the emotion

Accept it’s desolation to you

But what if I fight it

Could I win

When it pours in my veins

I’ve tried and failed before

But maybe, just maybe this time I can win

And the black dog will go

The only way is to stay vigilant

Put the barriers at the gate

The regimes strictly implemented

And hope you accept this in me

That I’m not always a ball of light

Sometimes I can’t get out of bed

It’s a forced smile to you

But only because the shadow is long today

And blocks out the sunlight

Can you accept this in me

When I can’t accept myself

I guess time will tell

Others failed before

I’ll tell myself the little story

You’re my twin soul

So how can you not?

And that’s when you’re there

Echoing my pain

Mirroring the love regardless of my shadow

Refusing to accept my BS reasons to run

And still loving me

In spite of and with my shadow

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
