Finding My Way

Please Come and enjoy the heartfelt piece – FINDING MY WAY

Sarah Doughty

“We were perfect.
Because we were together.”

I think I’m lost without you. The way you used to guide us, like you knew exactly where we needed to be and where we were going. It was perfect. We were perfect. Never a wrong turn, never a place I didn’t want to be. Because we were together. And without you, everything is dark, the roads are twisting and turning, and hope is running out the more life knocks me down.

Megha's World

I fail miserably to guard my self
my heart

which gives away
every single feeling
every moment
I spent;
I try so hard to disguise
I try to stop
those fleeting memories
of the time spent
near the corners of my smile
near those dimpled bends;
Nobody blames you
for turning my world
upside down
drowning me with your love
and painting my heart

you can possibly found;
All I hear is the word of advice
a hush
a whisper
to safeguard my precious heart
they say
they all talk in unison
and declare me
