Pillow

Tears fall into a pool
on my pillow
while my mind attempts
to join my body
for an evening of rest

It’s not the best night
for a mutual agreement

Instead, my stomach
entertains a live
basketball game
where thoughts dribble
and strategy is weak

The score, you ask?
It’s looking like a blowout
not in my favor

but I now see the sun
peeking into a new day
I’ve made an appointment
to get my attitude colored

I believe highlights of
optimism would be an
appealing change

then I’ll start to pave
a new path and
be on my way

  1. Just beautiful Lauren!—-Very telling. Your writing seems to have a ‘pattern’ that I am familiar with… Wonder why that is? 🙂 Much love and hugs to you my new friend. ❤

    • Thanks, Chris, it came to me one night when I couldn’t sleep. I had these thoughts and had to get up and write them down, quickly! 🙂 And of course, I had to add optimism! Love and hugs to you! HBL ♥

  2. What resonated for me are these lines, and I quote:

    “but I now see the sun
    peeking into a new day
    I’ve made an appointment
    to get my attitude colored”

    This is a powerful intention indeed and, as you have written in the next line,you would like in open your self to more optimism. This is the way one could rewrite and move towards a new future.
