Before I Reach Out
Author: Devilyangelic


I find myself alone with my thoughts,
that sail up and down my swamped mind like they were tiny boats.
Floating by every now and then,
is the idea of loving again.

Can I really let another in,
really allow her to get under my skin?
Or will I run and hide,
suppressing the love I have inside?

Lying here in a ball I hear the clock tick,
motionless yet I feel each brick being put on top of brick.
Barricading my hurt as it locks out my love,
silently I crave the peace of a dove.

Never in my life have I been so fenced in,
lost in my own hurt unsure where to begin?
How do I disect the good from the bad?
as it's tearing me apart not being able to find what I had.

The strength I own assures me I'll find my way,
that one day soon I'm going to be okay.
I'm just a little lost and don't know where to turn,
but it is these bittersweet times that aid me to learn.

My own sweet closure that I see is not so far,
but appears unreachable like that of a star.
There is one thing I no longer doubt,
that I must reach in BEFORE I REACH OUT!!!
