The Recovering Pessimist

Helping pessimists see the bright side of life without losing their "half empty" roots.

Beautiful Sadness

Jul

Behind the dimpled smile

Past the contagious laughter

A flicker of sadness rests in her eyes.

Anxiety agitates her stomach

Stress dances on her spine

Pride won’t show it

Alone, she cries.

Fear and worry flow hot

Down her cheeks.

Weight slowly lifting

From her burdened shoulders.

A beautiful sadness revealed

A dimpled smile and contagious laughter.

But no amount of tears

Can remove that flicker of sadness from her eyes.

Sad Eyes, Dark Soul

Apr

Nobody understands the sadness behind those eyes

Like someone who lives that sadness every day.

Empty.

Detached.

Memories of the past

Constantly replaying.

Cruel.

Reminder.

Emotional shrapnel tears through the soul

Shoulders heavy with burden.

Painful.

Weary.

Sad eyes

Dark soul

A story spoken

In silence.
