Weeping Willow

Sadness

consumed her

shadows dancing

around corners

a fragile

mind

ingesting

countless

ramifications

mountains

of regret

remorse

disbelief

self-inflected

shame

she was

addicted to

this pain

it gave her

an abnormal

sense of

relief

normality

seemed to be

a distance

far fetched

reality

so unfamiliar

so unreal

she struggled

to feel

the rain

or the raindrops

space distorted

swilling around

aimlessly

in a meaningless

existence

feet do not

touch the

ground

she sought

a mirror

a reflection

an image

to which

she could

relate

bewitched

by how

others seemed

so very

secure

anything

to abandon

her self-loathing

low self-esteem

self-hate

picture perfect

photographs

held inside a

dream-like-state

wondering why

she felt so

alien

strange

odd

freak

in comparison

to the evaluation

unrequested

spells

others cast

upon her

she would

hide her anxiety

toxic shame

an inability

to speak

out loud

funny how

she would

simply vanish

within the

maddening crowd

she could

no longer

contain

the incoherent

chatter

intellectualisation

hours lost

in wasteful

disgrace

noisy vocalisation

about things

that did not

really matter

how many

rainbows

would she need

to chase

to find

hopefulness

clarity

charity

grace

not

be blinded

by her unsuccessfulness

attracted to

taking a risk

falling

for the

fox or

the hound

willow tree

her roots

are deeply

placed within

soft ground

the wind it howls

her name

butterflies

spinning around

weeping willow

allow her

to sit

at your base

she aches

to the core

the bone

wrap her

within the wilfulness

you own

comfort her

guide her through

the barren land

as she walks

a distance

she needs to

travel

this path alone

as she wonders

the dark night

through

deadly

valleys

she is

desperate to

go home.
