tim's Bits and Pieces - 75. Wandering

WARNING: dark poetry ahead

I am lost

Wandering

Heavy is the grief in my heart

For I seek what is lost

Reach for what is not there

All I want is to lay down this pain

Yet

It is the yoke I carry

And it chains me to this earth

Though I want to flee

Leave it forever

For the peace the darkness offers

But the bright in your eyes haunts me

Holds me

For a moment, until the anguish returns

And I dream of clawing at my chest

To pull out my beating heart

To watch it until it is no more

**

thank you all ... stay safe

If there is a light

You can't always see

And there is a world

We can't always be

If there is a dark

Now we shouldn't doubt

And there is a light

Don't let it go out

-U2 "Song for Someone"

These lyrics have spoken to me loudly, ever since my son revealed his struggles with his own darkness. 

There is always light, even when we can't see. It's there, hiding behind the shadows we've created for ourselves.

Your words are moving. They're powerful. They're the tinder that will ignight your light when you're ready tim.

I know embraces cannot heal pain and anguish. Virtual ones drift by in the wind.

Would that I could carry your burden with you, even for just a few paces.

I hope that you know there are many of us who would take on some of the dark if we could. Further, I hope knowing that you mean something to others helps.

First: I see the amazing skill you have being able to take thoughts and ideas and turning them into words on a page, and make the reader feel what you’re saying. Bravo to you, tim. :) 

Second: Your words/thoughts are sorrowful, but I am glad you are sharing them with us rather than keeping them bottled up. While I may not be with you physically, you always have my support, because I will always look out for you. You are a true gem which darkness cannot hide. 

I’m adding my voice to those before me, I’d be there in the darkness with you if I could, but if you think about it, see me with your mind’s eye and I - and we all - are by your side crowding out the darkness. 

xoxo
