Turn on some calming folk music
Drink the tea from the box that says Relaxed Mind
Take a nap
Take a breath
Find a comfy soft blanket, little girl, to snuggle into
You will be okay
Missing your boy
Missing your friends
Missing your window into a life well-lived
Grieving the past
Grieving your parents
Grieving your childhood
Let it up and out dear one
You don’t have to run anymore.
Wrap yourself in that warm blankie
Drink that warm tea
This too shall pass
Today is not the day to stuff
Today is not the day to run or
Shop these feelings away
Sugar and caffeine makes you worse.
Alcohol is out of the question
These demons in your mind need to find solace
Let’s take them to a place where we feel contentment
Where we can move our body freely
Without the constraints of this mind that
Takes us back to places we only visit in our
Let’s let love in
Let’s reach out
Let’s remember we are never truly alone.
When we have that spirit within
We can search everywhere else
Outside of ourselves, but the place to find
The calm and love we are after is within us.
No more searching, dear one.
Let the loneliness fall to the wayside
You are all you’ve ever needed to be.
Stop being so hard on yourself
That you should be farther along and be prettier
You should stand taller and feel grateful for all that you have,
Yes, maybe tomorrow, but today I need to find the root of these traumas
That stir me from a deep sleep and remind me
Of my demise
They remind me of all I have lost and
Peer over my shoulder when I am finding my ground.
My footing is shaky
I fall and I beg for someone to see me here
Confined to my own mind.
My dangerous mind
That sees nothing but darkness
When the light is peering right around the corner
I escape into the night
Into my dinner, my drink, my writing
I escape to find the solace
That is so hard to come by these days.
I am a widow in my own mind
I am lost in my own mind
I am tangled in a web of my own mind
Free me from this
I beg you,
