Cracked Walls


Marsala color blurred tulip flowers (selective focus used) on textured cracked wall background.

Free to stay or not –

We know the score.

One foot on the floor,

and the other on the street.

Better off swappin’ battle scars

than fallen through the cracks.

We’re learnin’ to trust each other –

Our world turned upside down.

Fightin’ to get back up,

one foot behind the door.

Our pain shoved in worn out pockets

that can’t hold much more.

Textured grunge blurred blue color tone tulip flowers with rain droplets texture background. Concept blue rain drops illustrates the loneliness and sadness.

In here we belong somewhere.

Our demons enjoying their new friends.

Twenty faces, one picture

and hers to the right.

Searchin’ for the rabbit hole,

I’m afraid I’m losin’ my mind.

I don’t have anything else left.

The rest given to the street.

My heart’s done beatin’Β 

itself up over the past.

Nothing there but dreams

rusting by an empty swing.Β

      1. Haha! I’m so sorry about that! I obviously mixed you up with another blogger. I’ve been responding to a lot of notifications. Time to take a break, it would seem lol


  1. Wow, just so many emotions expressed here, Brenda. There are times when we must stop questioning and just get into something we love to do, having every confidence that we who seem to be in a million pieces are whole, truly whole. Your words really touched my soul, dear friend. (((HUGS))) ❀

    1. Your feedback always touches my heart, Amy. I couldn’t agree more with what you say. I think we’re all doing our best to put the different pieces of ourselves together in search of the “whole”. Depending on the cards we’ve been dealt, some of us struggle more with the process. Life is indifferent to our human endeavor. It’s up to us to support each other. ((Hugs)) πŸ™‚
