Dear Me – Epistolary Poem

Dear Me,

What have you become? You’ve crashed, due to a faulty system. Maybe your wiring’s bad. Or your connection has faded. It’s like you lost all you had, and the cost left you jaded. You’ve plugged yourself into too many sources and now you’re stuck running their courses. Jumping their hurdles, running their races. Passing by so quickly, it’s nothing but a blur of faces. Make it stop, or at least slow down. I’m tired of seeing your face stained with a frown. You’re fighting a battle, I know you are. But don’t waste your life on the front lines of war. Calm down, breathe, and let go. It will be hard, but take it slow. You’re stretching too far and wearing yourself thin, give yourself time to let it all in. Don’t become this figment of who you were, live for today and be all that you are.

  1. Wonderful, as always. Your poems, every one of them comes with such strength, confidence and wisdom. You a wise, young friend, very very wise and extremely talented. I hope you got my response… submission deadline is the 25th. (I’m not sure what time though).

    1. Thank you so much!! That really means a lot. ๐Ÿ™‚
      And I did, and I replied! Did it not go through? I’ve been having trouble with my comments posting.


      1. Hmm. I don’t see it. I am working with their customer service person right now. So your reply is extremely timely. Don’t do anything yet. It’ll probably say you’ve added too many links. That’s what it is doing to someone else which is why I was asking. Thanks Blair!


          1. Ah, okay, cool. The support person said don’t use the shortlinks from WP, they have gotten spammy and so now they have had to block any links. I think I’ll have to update information or write a post about this. Thanks for participating again. I’m sorry we missed each other for #springhassprung! ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great day.


    1. Thank you! I actually started this for a contest. I wrote about 1 and a half sentences and couldn’t think of anything else. Then suddenly, (about a week after the contest ended, of course) I just sat down and wrote this out. It comes when it wants to come I suppose. I just can’t write something until I really mean it.
