The tightrope and The Hollow

The Balance between thought, love and shadow. Tightrope balance needed


Happiness like I've never known, that smile that I've never shown, that thought I'd forever be betrayed and left all alone, that pain of past life I'd thought would be never gone...POOF!

It vanishes into dust now a vapor of positivity deeper than a thought on relativity that it just equivocally surmounted into love. No push nor shove it just showed up one day, no longer has my pain and anger have to stay on this new found, bright hopeful day.

Although off in the distance I sense it... The hollow that will forever linger and forever follow me. Doubtfully I hold on to this smile for the hollow claims all when I plummet into darkness and begin to fall as it tugs, it pulls, it fights to take it all. Any light, any hope, for me it is my rope I tight walk on a balance so fragile as I try to cross the hollow blows fierce winds in hopes I slip... But I focus... I bite my lip as I grip tightly the balance bar so I don't slip.

The bar evens me out keeping me on a straight and narrow to reach the other side, time and time again this "bar" my family, my friends always see to it that I make it to the end.

Sadly it's with love that is all pretend for whenever my heart begins to mend
For me that sadness will never end she pulls my hearts stitches from end to end
My harmony then begins to bend into the darkness once again
There is no happily ever after in the end just for me is my sadness and my pen.


Love, Sorrow
