the battle rages inside me

it’s okay
to let go
just let go
you can listen to that song
on the radio
you can sing
along
you can remember him
& the good times
you can let go of the hurt
of the pain
it does not serve you
anymore
it does not suit you
it shadows your smile
(& you have
such a beautiful
smile)
so sing along
remember your sorrows
if you must
but let them fly
into the night
sparks
from the fire
of your soul.

ugg. i wrote this yesterday in a moment of so-called clarity when i could smell hope in a sunbeam & hear the unicorns whispering good things….
i illustrated it today after my soul crumpled & broke, spilling out onto the kitchen floor.
me, as joan of arc.
battling on.
doomed to die in flames but under the illusion of the divine.

crap.

i was so trying to be more optimistic.
