I try to believe
the sun will rise tomorrow
but part of me knows
the dark cloud that surrounds me
will stay with me forever.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes 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 Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. 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.

  1. The sun WILL rise, and it WILL shine on you, and you WILL feel its warmth.
    The cloud WILL dissipate, maybe slowly, but it WILL!

    • Must be damn slow… it’s been there for dozens of years… pretty much since my teen years.

      • You’ve mentioned this to me a hundred times. It makes me feel old and terrible and uncomfortable. Besides, what is bringing me down more than anything else is my apparently incurable back pain. I have had it for at least 20 years. I don’t think it’s hormone related.

        • When people see “hormones” they thing 2 things — teenagers and older women. God knows what people who read these comments think when they see that all the time.

          To me, this blaming of hormones for everything is just like men saying women are moody because they “must have their period”.

          Also, I’m sorry, but I fail to see how any of this is going to fix my 20-year-old back pain.

          And finally, a huge part of what troubles me is being able to “do”. So it’s not simple like you keep telling me it is. And I am never going to stop thinking because I have a brain and I’m an intelligent woman.
