Bruised Spirit

Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons

memories of melancholia

bury my passion to exist

the thick of fog blurs my mind

I am my own puppet

yet without control

my hard-spent days

a riddle

      Oh, I hope your days get better. I’ve had days like this moreso when I was employed. Retiring was a blessing. 😉

        Just getting away from a place of employment is a blessing.

        Thank you, Eugenia! Work can definitely suck the life out of you. I am very fortunate that I love my job and am (most days) very happy with it. It probably helps that I’m only part time too! Enjoy your retirement!!

    Oh lovely! That ballerina just going around and around, great image to reflect the feeling of life being out of your control. Good job, Eugenia!
