Pictures of you by SE Allen

As day becomes night.

Soul’s Heart and Mind’s Eye fight.

Pictures of you.

Struggle with positive thoughts.

Replaced by feelings of distraught.

Pictures of you.

The will becomes stronger.

As the wave goes onward.

Pictures of you.

Seeking an answer of why I’m here.

Feelings of confidence replaced by fear.

Pictures of you.

The struggle is real.

This not wanting to feel.

Pictures of you.

As the waves subside.

The tears begin to dry.

Pictures of you.

Surviving once again.

The anxiety and depression.

Pictures of you.

Waking to the dawn.

With a new will to go on.

Pictures of you.

The same questions that I seek.

Every day and every week.

Pictures of you.

The answers are not in the night.

They still remain in the light.

Pictures of you.

Purpose still not clear.

Yet, I’m still here.

Pictures of you.

There were others before.

That left me callous and sore.

Pictures of you.

Their actions and words leaving me hurt.

I felt worthless, less than dirt.

Pictures of you.

The past could’ve made me bitter.

I’ve never been a quitter.

Pictures of you.

It’s not pleasure I seek.

That makes the mind and body weak.

Pictures of you.

I want a love that’s dependable.

Not one that’s reprehensible.

Pictures of you.

The experiences I had.

Filled with both good and bad.

Pictures of you.

The lessons were learned.

More bridges were burned.

Pictures of you.

That moment in time.

Still goes through my mind.

Pictures of you.

The universe’s only clue.

To what I’m supposed to do.

Pictures of you.
