This Won't Be The Last -

First there is hope, shaded by silent promises and the warmth of being wrapped up in his arms.

This is followed by a pristine moment of clarity. 
(I had forgotten what serenity feels like.)

Clarity forges indifference to shield the war-wise heart, but leads directly to disappointment anyway. Thunder grinds away without the calm of rain. 

Sadness sets up and smolders deep inside, where there's no room for tears.

  1. Tonight you read my mind Lulu. I dont know about you but I always still hope it's the last. And I pray that moment of understanding never comes. Perfectly coated in heart.

    1. A sadness so deep down is nice in a way.. to be free of the associated tears. But it certainly is difficult to shake. That is the truth.

  6. The worst state of mind is the one of being torn into broken pieces.
    Its becomes very hard to put yourself together then.

    1. Someone once told me that when your heart shatters it's as if pieces of you have been launched into the air like confetti. If you force yourself forward, one foot in front of the other, you will catch yourself one piece at a time. But only if you look up.

  10. does it always happen like this? is it just on repeat?

    I read your blog backwards tonight, so I read your hopeful one before this one. So it doesn't make me as sad as it probably would have. xoxo
