my heart aches

I remember what it feels like

to have moments of absolute joy

other times I want to find a spot in the tall grass

cry myself  to sleep

It sucks to feel so deeply

to look into someone’s eyes and see

loss sorrow pain fear


then I see a person laughing

and the light hasn’t gone

and I feel the joy,

the exuberance


I want to stand tall in the field

arms stretched wide

spinning round til I fall

laughing tears
