i am haunted this day...

what am I this day?

I try not to define myself in this way

though today the palpability,
is quite deafening.

feeling, mood, aura, so inward;
that outward seems, exhaustively unattainable.

solace within
my private place
my secret domain
i am sheltered, safe, untouched,
if only to a degree.

the rains
white noise

they murmur in the distance
soothing me
lulling me into a placid
meditative state

leading me to that unknown
where imagination
and peace
can often be found

yet not this day!

for you are there
an apparition of you

today, this is not a comforting thing
it is a haunting thing
i am on edge

and the only thought,
the only thought that consoles,

is the thought of being held in your embrace…

I am haunted this day

Calli, really nice. Alone? Lonely? Never!
And 'spoons', always 'felt' spooning to be a comfortable way to live, or to start living?

I was alone and lonely
Also I spoke to no one
And the world seemed a strange place.

I love this one Calli...I often feel this way...and find it so fascinating... that no one can actually see such strong emotions churning inside...
Thanks for your beautiful comment.
I treasure it. Love and Light, Laura
