Some are afraid of the boogie man
of the things that go bump in the night
of black sludge creeping down walls
of dark eyes, green or yellow
but what scares me the most
what haunts me
are the ghosts
the almosts, the maybes
the chances missed
because you swerved
when you were meant to drive straight
ridicule and torture
I had a great holiday, and just relaxing right now while thinking of making some dinner for tonight. I had a bit of a rough morning, but I am better now. I am too hard on myself, but sometimes I don’t feel quite enough for those around me, you know?
I want to be there for the ones I care about, but sometimes I feel like I’m not quite as present as I ought to be. I blame SAD, of course…I blame anxiety, too, but it’s still not a thought that I wanted to get started with the new year.
Is that a new New Year’s resolution: No regrets? Hey, it’s probably a start!
How is everyone? How are you celebrating the New Year?
