"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is
made up of."

-- Bruce Lee

I am mourning,
Losing myself
Since you left me.
I am alone, by myself.

I am hiding,
Blending in-
Trying to escape myself,
My hope wearing thin.

I am searching,
Seeking out
A drop of comfort
Despite the drought.

I am healing
Recovering somehow...
But I cherish my scars-
They show I’ve moved from then to now.

I am struggling.
Trying not to look back.
Where you linger cunningly,
And still hold the power to attack.

I am here.
That simply has to be enough.
And today,
It is.

This kinda just shows the battle I’ve been fighting lately. The struggle to keep my head above water that is constantly changing - cool to rough to tranquil to violent to comforting to hard... Everyone knows how to swim in this sea of life, but at some point you have to learn just how to ride the waves.
