The day held all I needed.
A crystal blue sky created the backdrop
For the flowers to flaunt their blooms.
I collected the warmth of the brilliant sun,
Letting it soak into my skin and soul.
The gentle breeze rustled through the leaves,
Whispering its wind song in my ears.
The chimes joined in the glorious chorus
Creating a resplendent symphony.
And I thought, “This is it.”
Life has been mended and is whole again.
Certainly now I can find peace of mind.
I will prudently choose the proper path this time.
And the journey will be effortless and full of joy.
But suddenly one infinitesimal flicker of a thought
Slipped into view with a discordant and disagreeable plop.
I struggled to send it away as quickly as it came,
Maintaining my composure and idyllic ruminations.
It was already too late.
Soon an army of thoughts returned
To join the first one in the assault.
It was futile to try and stop them all.
And soon they overtook my mind,
Like a swarm of screaming banshees,
Destroying the short-lived peace I had enjoyed.
So I once again entered my cave of melancholy
Cue the woe and misery that blocks the sun
The onslaught continues.
Like an old movie I’ve seen before
The thoughts play over and over again.
I fear it will take more than a perfect day
To defeat the despair and anguish.
But still I search for escape from the pain
Something, in whatever form, to clear the fog and set me free.
Now I am waiting to be rescued from the relentless attacks,
Hoping my knight in shining armor appears soon.
