Steady

Alone;
Burdened;
I know I’m not the only one who’s hurting.
Left;
Abandoned;
I didn’t expect this to happen.
Palms sweaty;
Heart heavy;
Now, these hands shake that used to be steady.

Steeple

Trapped in this monotony,
Surely this isn’t all You’ve got for me.
They poke and they prod,
Thinking all that I think is odd.
Alone in a room full of people,
Surely there’s more to life than this steeple.

Lines

I’ve lost my mind.
I kissed it goodbye.
I used to worry about sanity,
Now I don’t even try.
From this day forward,
I only color outside the lines.
