Meredith Marie


i caught a glimpse
of infinity
and hoped through tears
that you thought of me
goose bumps
raised hairs
and feelings of distress
without you,
i'm nothing but mess.

i snuck a look
at eternity
and prayed to god
that you looked at me
saw hurt
saw pain
came over to help
come over,
release me from hell.

this cell that i've composed for myself
trapped in a prison of pain and self doubt.
baby, release me, you just say the word-
unlock me with your imperfect perfection,
let me out of this unsafe self hatred-
pull me back into your haven of arms.

    Swimming in the sea of sadness yet with a window of hope. Well done my friend!
