Left you Hanging

Left You Hanging

 

You took it with you brother – reason,

If you ever really had it at all you’d still be here.

It all fell apart mid birthday season

The pain of the past, the present fear.

 

Blame the depression

Blame the meds

Blame our childhood

Blame everyone but yourself

 

Everyone left you hanging,

Left you

You left

Hanging

 

There were so many reasons to tie that noose

Even more to not.

So many reasons brother, but none an excuse

To make that final knot.

 

Shame on the family

Shame on the friends

Shame on the doctors

Shame on everyone but yourself

 

Everyone left you hanging,

Left you

You left

Hanging

 

Those layers of twine were the only things that supported you in this life,

Supported weight – yours and the worlds’ as you hung limply.

Convinced that only your world contained closed doors and strife,

You shouldn’t have to work hard or long, just easy, simply.

 

Overcame the childhood

Overcame the abandonment

Overcame the isolation

Overcame everything but yourself

 

Everyone left you hanging,

Left you

You left

Hanging

We read to learn, to feel, to laugh, to understand others. We write to teach, express, communicate, to inspire others. I created Invisible Ink as an outlet of sorts, an area where I can organize the chaos; a place where hopefully I can be true to myself, and my readers. Writing is personal, it takes a brave and dedicated soul to formulate a piece and then share it with the world. That being said, I get just as much out of reading other's work as I do sharing mine ( I am always open to manuscript review swaps, just send me a message). Words read off a page evoke emotions. When taken out of context, or through an out of focus lens - anyone can mold the words, shifting their meaning to fit their agenda or distorted outlook. Staying true to form and myself, I won't censor my content, but I will censor my audience. Whatever lens you happen to be reading this through - I hope you enjoy!
