Monstrous Me

Give it time they say,

And growth is always pain.

How do you know if it’s growth anyway?

When we crash in life,

It all feels the same.  

Searching for advice, 

But no suggestions fit.

Looking for signs,

But there are no stars for this.

The gods rip me apart for their master plan,

Growing pains just let me keep my heart.

This black cloud hovers all my nights & days,

The least it could do is show me the way.

The lesson is patience and self-restraint,

My angels make me wait.

Dear Universe! The air is cold,

And I can’t hold on more.

I’ve become afraid to wish,

The universe gives but takes away.

Magic & pain,

It’s hard to explain.

So I’ll let my emotions consume me,

Swallow me,

Until I become,

The monstrous me.

  1. I’ve become afraid to wish…
    That is such a heartbreakingly resonating line for me. This whole poem touched me. Life has become tentative and apprehensive.
    It’s brilliant, though. You’re brilliant.
