Chasing Twilight

Picture source: Pinterest

We went to bed in the cruellest places,
hoping to wake to beautiful things.
And I suppose the way twilight crept
through gauzy drapes and cracked glass
to lay its cool glow over sleepy eyes,
held a particular beauty.
For when dawn crawled through torn drapes
and shattered glass to lay its tired glow
over wounded eyes, we yearned to chase twilight
into the cruelest places, again.

  1. Love!! Nicole on a personal note I have a forty year old daughter with mental illness. I admire you so much for trying to overcome your struggles and express it thru your beautiful and broken words. I’m the woman you told write darling write. As a mother my heart breaks everyday and I would love to share with you the fire you started and set my soul a blaze. As I sit here once again with my heart shattered and broken into a million pieces, bleeding from veins and arteries I never knew existed and once again wondering and questioning how could I have miserable failed at parenting again? Or did I?? Thank you as I continue to survive this journey with the love of my life “My only daughter” and can release these demons thru my writing the only reprieve that truly understands.
