Poems and Short Quips - 33. Foothold in the Fog

At what point does the pain
of heartbreak and disappointment
dissipate and seep from our souls?

When do our weary hearts
finally tip over the edge
and glide into the womb of healing?

Around each bend dark shadows linger,
luring victims who succumb to false hope
while scrambling for a foothold in the fog.

How exhausting it is to tread the surface,
to struggle against the unyielding storm
as it reigns victorious from its throne.

At what point do we shed our fortitude
and finally admit defeat?

Thanks, everyone. I wasn't going to post but figured it had been too long since I last did so.

Your kind words here and in DMs have uplifted me. I appreciate it. Cheers.

I'm sorry for all the pain you're feeling, and will continue to feel. It's never easy. When my ex-boyfriend broke up with me four and a half years ago, I was a wreck for months. It's okay to not be okay. But, as you see here, you're not alone. I hope that gives you some comfort.
