Options of a Single Spinster

Being a single person in her 30s is hard. Especially in a conservative and stereotypical setting.

One starts doubting and questioning self. Was staying single worth it? Should I just get married? But is all this compromise really going to be worth it..? Will my “i do” really be the best solution to life’s travails?

Veracity & Lies

imagesI told myself a pretty lie
I almost convinced myself
Might have done the unthinkable
But scarce could let myself.

‘Twas you who
Got stuck in between
You
Whose heart
Might even
Have touched.

This convincing lie
I barely could swallow
Nor let you strive
To ascertain veracity.

VACUUM

“Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”  –   Sarah Williams

 

Float away…

Sometimes it’s this dark unfeeling vacuum that gives one the space and the break one needs in life. A whirlpool may cause destruction but in the midst of it all there is an abysmal calm. That’s how I feel. Too many problems, worries, frustrations surround me but I am not completely rattled or baffled.

Just distanced. Detached. And Resigned.

MY person…

Heart heavy
Mind occupied
How can I ever hope
To live life unfettered

Somehow somewhere
A hope hidden deep
Tells me to wait
To be patient, stand still

I wait, I stand
I long for a friend
I wait, I stand
I yearn for my person.
