These aching feet,

have grown far too tired of carrying me around in vicious circles

In the peaceful silence of this moonlit nightย 

I listen to my footsteps

Always carrying me forward 

but forward, I have not gone

Growth all around me

As I look back upon my life

I have come so far.

Into the eyes of this young child before me

whose eyes resemble mine; I cannot look

for she deserves better

then Iโ€™ve given

shame fills my being

for I have failed you

all you wanted was love and I stripped it from your eyes

love no longer lives there anymore

how can I tell her?

This world isnโ€™t what she saw

She used to color rainbows in the sky

with beautiful flowers and butterflies that flew all around her

who knew a cloud could ever form in that sky?

I allowed the world under my skin and it made a home out of me

in overwhelming anger and resentment, I sat

with no room for boundless love

In any of these rooms, I refused to leave

As I dig through these hoarded rooms

I start to recognize you

I dig endlessly, tossing all of these clouds back up into the sky

so the rain can finally come down and cleanse these eyes 

One day, I will see you again

I will see clear again

I will find you in the cracked mirror

My dear friend.
