So Heavy

Made me shine thru the clouds
Brought the best out of my soul
Circles taken then pushed straight
A road others took less turns on
Late night debates in my head
Followed with a dance & laughs
Magical wand of happiness
To remind me I was wanted
Oh it's so heavy to me now
Yet a soft healing memory
A face seen in todays mirror
Alone & without reflection
Of a man who understood
Me. Just me. Thru it all.

About this poem
