Deleted...not gone


I can erase almost everything,
not look,
not see....
shove emotions
to the darkest parts of me.

I am able to wake up
with a smile on my face,
no random thoughts,
moving through life
at a steady pace.

Its only when the sun goes down
When I'm really by myself.
Looking for comfort,
some help.

I can't pretend
these things are gone.
This pattern,
too long.

make up washed away...
no marks of cry.

Silly,
always wondering
why.

I've seen my reflection
many times,
no depth,
no heavy weight
of this crime.

But when I see me
through my children eyes,
I have to fix this
to heal their cries.

I guess today is
a good day.
Don't ask me
to come play.
or
tell me that
I will be okay.

My monsters inside,
thought to be deleted.

It truly
was only
me defeated.

One small step
in the right direction,
lead
too many more.
Not gone....
UNDEFEATED! ! ! !

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
