~Thoughts of Today~

Submitted by Libby on Sun, 03/24/2019 - 05:40

My soul is bare...
there is nothing left, not a single drop
to burst into a fountain of magic.
There is nothing,
no fantasy sublime with which to enchant.
My words have failed me—
fled from my mind into
All that I own are
the little fancies—
sweet, wispy dreams
that elude my grasp...
and gone are the days that held my clearest thoughts.
Deep is the cavern where the
lost have fallen.
I am left with only a prayer,
heartfelt for its vagueness,
a bare offering of my soul
for Thee.

Oh this is so, so good. These moments are so broken yet simultaneously beautiful. And oh, so necessary. Thank you for poetically expressing these deep thoughts, and sharing them, too.

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.
