In Your Headlight Beams.

It occurs to me –
that, quite possibly –
there’s a solid reason behind,
these repeated failures of mine,
when I once again can’t find what I seek;
Perhaps it is simply that he –
isn’t out there after all, for me –
it’s gone well beyond the time,
to accept with heart and mind,
that I stand in that lonely line of reality;
Maybe I have finally seen that such things –
are blessings bestowed upon other human beings –
and now I feel like the same old fool again,
in the skin of a bitter and aging woman,
the wide-eyed doe in your headlight beams.

    I know how you feel sometimes – good things happen to everyone else. Sometimes you have to hold onto faith that good things will happen to you – or try and make them happen. 🙂

    Never give up, Milady, not on your happiness, life, love or yourself. You’ve fought and survived too much to give up or settle for less than you deserve. You are perfect example of a survivor, not a victim. Don’t let anyone or anything take your glimmer, you rock (even when it doesn’t feel like it) and you give so many that bit of light they need as they travel down that dark dark tunnel.
