Come Undone

Always taking the time for 

what you need and want

The empath in me desiring a break

Less of reality, more of a taunt


The goals have become stumbling

blocks as I have tried to do each one

I pace myself with all the obstacles

Trying not to come undone.


Should be a lazy Sunday

but there's so much to complete

There'll be no winners today

Just the disappointment of defeat


I start to crack in the center

Just a feeling of ripe despair

Then my family surrounds me

Each one lets me know they care



    Thanks for sharing CHRIS ~ we can all relate to that at some level ~ the cumulative stress of the everyday things ~ to relieve that we have Family ! I love going to my Mums for SUNDAY LUNCH and it removes the stress of having to cook for myself and of course of missing ANGELA more each day ~ especially the thought of Christmas without her ! Still EASTER 2019 will come soon enough and we talk each day on phone or SKYPE. Please check my Poem today ~ I wrote it to complement Angela's of yesterday ! Abrazos y Besos de BRIAN y ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡

            Beautifully written and very visual, and family and friends can make a great difference when life gets us down or plans/goals don't go exactly as expected. At times like that I've got use to saying "character building" 😁
