As the dust settles…..


After all the pain has gone

I watch as the dust slowly starts to settle

As the particles drift all around me, I reflect

On everything

On nothing

On who I was

On who I wasn’t

After the pain is gone

I wonder what will become

Of everything

Of nothing

Of me

And now the words that cut me like a knife are gone

It is a lonely place

With nothing but the thoughts in my head

That will not leave me alone

Did I do the right thing

Did I do the wrong thing

And those words were my security blanket

The only thing that covered me

And I have been stripped down

Totally naked and exposed

And it is scary here


Those horrible words comforted me
