One step forward and two steps back
Hard to see light within this black
Full fledged pain begins its attack
Hard to break free when hope you lack

Though I try as hard as I might
Happiness just seems to take flight
On gossamer wings in to night
Quickly it fades out of my sight

Tears well up and run down my face
Of my heart there is not a trace
Just a longing for his embrace
A hollow void I can't erase

With clipped wings its hard to fly free
I am caged within misery
Lonely and locked in memory
Chained to sadness without a key

How do I make it through each day
Nothings working try as I may
Thoughts of us in my mind replay
My heart is withering away

I know that I must move ahead
But darkness is the road I tread
My spirit cries for it is dead
I'm barely hanging by a thread

One step forward and two steps back
Hard to see light within this black
Full fledged pain begins to attack
Hard to break free when hope you lack

Of course, I wouldn't know how you connected so well with mellow and melancholy, Miss Pinky...but you did.

...and you know what? I don't believe a word of it! But you sure did it "gooders"!

I'll leave you with this dear Indian Princess... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N0IjBgyFoE  

...just bein' Bluesy

Pinkheart,
I have to agree your blues are a hard sell when you are all bubbles and sunshine. I'm dubious (what a great word, dubious) too. Of course the poem is distinctly you. And as always well done.   ~L
