to be honest, i hit a bit of a dry spell during these days because i left my poetry book at work and i ran around during the weekend. here is a piece i revisited and revised during those days…

for those
(c) 2011 by margaux delotte-bennett

for those
currently wrapped up in sadness
heavy hearts
eyes puffed and sore from crying out pain
chipping through the facade of
i’m ok
everything’s fine
this too shall pass

when the rhetoric fails
and the chocolate’s all gone
and it’s a bit harder to get out of bed

know that without motion
it all remains

the little good and the lots of bad
the sinking feeling
the gaping hole

staying in the funk
is never a good choice
so tread
until you can swim
until you can fly
up and out of “this”
because i assure that “that”
is so much better.
