Covered by darkness

In the shadows, hides a
mind swollen full of pain and emptiness.Dark thoughts consume my soul.
I'm sure not to show it, when others are looking.
Head  held high ,smiles to hide the horrible feelings I have inside.My heart swollen drowning in despair.Days turn into night's meditation nope not for me, medication yes please.Cant handle my loved ones being taken from me. It's a punishment I do believe when the darkness consumed me.

I’m just a old country girl at heart.I am a mother of three grandmother of four,I’m just a country girl,I have been through love.Blessed with a amazing family.But in life I’ve made some bad decisions in my past domestic abuse substance abuse drinking and the list goes on.Sadly I didn’t listen to anyone friends or family I woke up one day with cast on both arms from shoulders to my fingers.I had memory loss and I still do on somethings,I don’t know what all he done and probably never will.Amazingly I’m still alive GOD has his reasons I’m told.I just started writing what was on my mind at that moment.I hope by sharing my stories that maybe it will help others.We all deserve better God does love us all. more…
