I hear you


When the sun is trying to inch up

Before the twilight hits the horizon

I hear you.

I hear you as the night closes in

Just as my head hits the pillow

And the sleep is nowhere to be found

I hear you.

I hear you

Underneath my breath

Just as it reaches my ribs

I hear you in the exhale.

I hear you

But sometimes

It is so hard to listen

Harder to recognize your presence

You’ve never sought the spotlight!

I hear you even when I don’t

I try to forget that you even exist

By distraction

The phone, Netflix and social media are enough to keep you away.

I hear you

But I still seek advice and opinion of my allies

When I could just hear you!

I’m sorry

For all the times I’ve ignored you

For all the time I played you off as anxiety

You – my instinct – we used to know each other .

I’ve let us become estranged

The fault is mine

Every time you creep up on my conscious being

I withdraw from you

Instead of running to you.

I wish I hadn’t

Because nothing else has helped me avoid huge mistakes and heartbreak than listening to you

And now that I haven’t, I have a few new lessons to heal from.

Know this,

No matter how ever much I push you away.

You are always welcome,

To throw yourself onto me at any given time,

The next time around, I will LISTEN!

  • Winter ✅ The spring is here
    The winter, the snow showed up as literal and figurative battles. Through those times, it was important to stay grounded. Things are peaceful now, healing has begun. Now it is time for the hope to shine it’s light. That hope is you. If you got you, you choose you, all this will end soon and things will get brighter and lighter. Everything is seasonal.

    I care too much. That’s a fatal flaw. I think. Sometimes I believe that too. Maybe it’s a Pisces thing. We love to fall in love with the idea of love or people. We are selfless. If we are in, we are all in. That’s rubbish. Be all in for – YOU. I have been learning that it is good to care enough and not too much.  Because too much of a good thing is never good, is it? Has this been you as well?…
