When you want nothing more than to give up, don’t. If you never read another word, listen to another lyric, or feel another poem, at least know this. Don’t give up. Find your solace, that stillness in your heart and your mind, and let it fill you to the brim. Let everything else out. If that means crying harder than you ever did your life, then cry. Laugh. Whatever you need to do. Do it. Be still. Be at peace. And let go.

Then live again.

The strand of web vibrates

and the spider darts out

to see what he has captured.

only a droplet?


he returns to hiding


he won’t be fooled again

as more droplets

fall from the skies

and onto his web.

raindrops on a spider’s web?


No, teardrops from my eyes

as my broken heart tries

to forget
