tissues

alone…i keep searching

for something i cannot find.

whether it truly exists,

i really don’t know

but

i keep looking in hopes it will be kind.

is it a thing or is it a person?

can it be a feeling or an idea?

will i know what it is when i find it

or

will i be blind never knowing it was real?

i used to believe it helps to have a someone,

another set of eyes walking by your side –

a shoulder for leaning or a hand for holding

needed tissues for one’s tear-filled eyes.

but

i have learned that having a someone

is not all what it is talked up to be.

there is no one with enough tissues –

except the person crying

and

this would be me.

    Only we can take away our pain… I resonated with your words.
    We can seek support from others… and it might be good for the time being but eventually, we are all left to ourselves… that is what I feel.

    Beautiful and heartbreaking all in one. I wish that words could take your pain away, but I have none.

    Some are too busy to even look for something or to question if there is something to look for.
    To me there is nothing wrong with crying alone. Sometimes it is the best thing to do.

    Only by letting go of the past can we embrace the future; and what’s more no-one is worth suffering over in the present. For every present is a gift. 🙂

    This made me cry. It is so powerful and I felt it strongly! It will get easier as time passes.

    “…is it a thing or is it a person?…can it be a feeling or an idea?…” It is your Self. Blessings…
