I’m stuck in the middle of the road, not that I have intentions of being knocked down by a car. I really want to walk away or run across but no, I simply can’t. No matter how hard I try, my feet refuses to move and so, I stand there hoping not to get knocked down.
I’m crushed on the inside, unloved and abandoned; no wonder I’m stuck at cross roads I’m not suicidal but maybe hallucinating of moments that the nose will cease to breathe and the heart will stop to pump.
I’m stuck in the middle of the road, not that I have intentions of being knocked down by a car. I stand there making wishes of things I long for; of things I want to change and the sacrifices I’ve made for others.
Why is human desire so consuming like a hungry bushfire ridding everything in its path. I once knew love but now I know pain; its sweet taste lingering in my mouth.
I’m crushed on the inside but I turn just in time to see the truck heading for me; the driver had lost control. I closed my eye waiting for the moment when I’ll be free. Then, He grabs me out of nowhere and pushes me to safety; whispering in my ear: ‘I’m always here for you’.
I find warmth in His arms such calm and peace and joy.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU MY LOVE”. Tis then I smiled the smile I longed.
