Rest

“not because you’re holding on to the
light doesn’t mean you are out of the darkness.”

Because not all lights are bound to illuminate your way. Not all good is beautiful, and that not all beautiful is good as well. Just as how you thought you’ve made the best choices, made the best decisions, and made the best and smartest moves. And, then reality hits you – you were wrong. So wrong.

Regrets filled you in.

Sorrow captured your soul.

Despair engulfed your heart.

You were supposed to be in a top-notch condition by now. Given how smart you are. Given how talented you are. And given how kind of a person you are.

What happened? What went wrong?

You don’t need to answer. It’s enough to break my heart to see you like that.

Worn out.

Exhausted.

Fatigued.

Drained.

I don’t need to know.

But know you can rest your weary heart on me.

  2. isn’t so heartbreaking to see someone suffer like that. offering them a place to rest their heads is so healing, no words, just a place to breathe. your poem flows with compassion and understanding, empathy with sincerity, tied up in love.
