when i get older


Jun 19, 2010

The headache that follows the tears of heartbreak
cannot be eased with normal measures

It rests in the back of her skull
With the dull heartbeat of repetition and finality

thoughts and tears have swollen her eyes
and her skin is pale despite her tan

so she plays on repeat a song
that inspires and reminds her

"when i get older i will be stronger"
and about the fourth time she's heard it

she finds the strength
to get out of bed

a smile creeps cautiously back into her eyes
because love is the answer

and she walks outside to see the already
high sun and remembers that

sad is part of life
loss is part of love

and out of the darkness
she will find light

and move forward
and grow again.
