Poetry in the morning #poetry #stillheartbroken #bearwithme

I woke up. How were you the first thing on my mind?

Did I dream of you last night? Or did I wake up wanting to have dreamt of you?

I saw you on the air last night. I was hoping you were a mess, but you looked amazing.

Perhaps today you will start to fade. Perhaps breathing will get easier today.


Please bear with the sappy poetry. This is just part of my processing sadness. Eventually the sappy poems will stop and I will get back to funny and cute haikus.

It’s Wednesday and time for a Haiku

I can’t help but think

There is someone out there now

Wanting to love me.

I’m trying to stop looking for someone and just let life happen and that person find me, but I can’t help focus on the love that I pray will be.

One day Billy.

(There’s no one named Billy. It’s an inside joke.)

Monday Haiku

The burnout is real

My heart feels empty right now

I need peace and love

Let me explain this haiku. After being in social services for as long as I have, I am feeling the burnout right now. This is the first time in my career that I have started looking for employment outside of social services.

I have experienced this burnout many times and I know how to remedy it. It’s a work in progress.
