Kaleidoscope

Darkness

All around me

But I’m not sticking around

I will paint a clear sky

Even if it kills part of me

Hold my hand until I can stand on my own

Holding myself accountable

For what I can and cannot control

 

Strong winds yanked open the door

The world is colorful after all

Soaking in a porcelain bathtub

Of neon gems

 

I’m spilling every detail

A little bit at a time

Ink bleeding waterfalls

Across each page and screen

Trying not to fall again

To recuperate

So far, sometimes good

 

How many strangers

Have seen me at my worst?

More than I ever thought would

More than I ever thought I would allow

It was my guardian angel’s compromise

The safest way out

Life is a rollercoaster and I feel sick

Life is a highway and I keep getting stuck in traffic
