contradiction.Living the best day
One of the worst 

On top of the world
I am in hell
Every game won
All is lost
Motives powerful
Drowning in weakness
Soaring, flying high above
Falling to the ground
Under bright sunshine
Hiding in darkness
Being what you wanted
You don’t want me
Walking the living earth
Buried beneath
Love all around me
Abandoned and alone


I found this last night in my poetry stash… I don’t remember when I wrote it… or why I rejected it…

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.

    That is a perfect expression of feeling like hell and wanting out but not being able to grasp the way. Helplessness, frustration, despair… Managing a positive and then having it crash down again.

  4. This is fantastic. It’s exhausting feeling like that, the yo yo effect and/or putting on a brave face. Ugh!

    Some days (weeks? Months?) are perpetual contradictions. This wonderfully expresses those feelings; the struggle to find balance.

    I sometimes think that the up and down is worse than if it were all down. At least you wouldn’t be wondering how things were gonna go today. Never knowing how to feel or what’s coming next, it’s like a constant game of wtf is wrong with me? Very relatable. As you can tell, I’ve had a bad day, lol.
