my strength faded
nearly gone
my will to hang on
has run from me
I’m losing my balance
this branch cannot
hold me forever
the heaviness
of my lonely heart
weighs me down
in mere moments
the violent crack
will scream
into the silence
deafening me
and the last trace
of my strength
will break
and the last piece
of my heart
will break
and I
will break

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    You’ve expressed loneliness and desperation so beautifully. I also feel at times that I’m hanging on by a mere thread…

  5. Sometimes I find myself mentally preparing for the worst-case scenario (such as being alone forever) so that if/when it happens, maybe it won’t hurt as much. It’s really no way to live, though, is it? Anyway, hugs for you. Hope things improve for you soon.

    Well written poem. Maybe you’re stronger that you think? Sometimes we are sure our support system, our lives, will shatter, but there is strength in us, we never knew existed before we were tested.
