time waits for no one, but there's beauty in the moment
- 'bon iver' by mxmtoon

why do I spread something joyful

and then cry legible tears?

why do I pull words from a springtime walk

only to lose hope 

one poem later?

my mind is not a simple place to be

I've decided that what's best for me

is to write exactly what I feel

I write my blessings


and relapses

because that 

is exactly how I want to heal

The author's comments:

I tend to do most of my writing at low points in my life.  The creativity comes naturally when I've got something bottled up in my mind.  When it isn't a relapse, it's often a beautiful little blessing or epiphany that I just can't help sharing.
