Life River

“will this life river still run as smoothly as it used to,
or will it die fast after your departure?”

all the storms there just hit me the hardest
all the sunshine of the morning was taken abruptly away from me
all the grief in the world was laid perfectly down upon me
no amount of rainbow-colored sky could brighten up this day.

the storm just flooded the river of my heart with despair
my once vibrant reflection has now turned into a brutally distorted zombie
my once lively colors have now turned gray with sorrow
no amount of positive thoughts could make me want for tomorrow.

    Despair oozes from this one. I hope it is the pause for self pity before the strong woman rises and conquers her world (alone if needed)!!

  6. Aw… 😦 Powerful and poignant. So many emotions conveyed in the photo and your poem, SweetMich.
    Always hang on…the storm will pass, the reflection will clear, the colors will be bright again, the positive thoughts will return, and the river will flow with joy. ❀️
