Sleepless 3am

friends don't let friends pout and post

A woman adrift
Tossed on the swells of her thoughts
No landfall in sight

Doubts circle like sharks
Drawing closer in the dusk
Fear colors her dreams

New dawn brings no hope
Unreachable horizons
Empty endless seas

No friends to anchor
Strangers buffet like white caps
A woman alone

You're in my thoughts - I've been there.

You've got us, Lulu.
Such as we are.

Shazza & Dive -

The darkness has passed. 3am is ideal for wallowing. It was one truly sucky week. It's only upwards from here.

I also had an awful week. I spent 5 days going through the hell of medical tests & scans for my head injury. At 3 AM on the nights in between I was also sleepless and feeling alone even though I could her my partner snoring ... lol :D

My skull fracture is healing, brain swelling is down, optic nerve is damaged, I can barely see & I have migraines but I can read blogs like yours and appreciate your poetry too. I'm 6 months into an 18 month healing process - no brain damage thank gawd!

Love and peace Lulubelle

3.00 am is definitely wallow time.

Glad you are feeling a bit more up now.
