stillness

I'm sitting here alone tonight,
Wondering why I don't feel quite right.
It's been a very long day,
The I need a hug and beer kind.
I am a strong person,
I always will be,
but today for some reason,
something changed in me.

I don't know what it is,
I don't know why it happened.
I just know
That I will never be the same again.

I'm sitting here,
in the stilliness of the night
Where I've given ideas to words,
and my creativity is taking flight.
I cried today, a single tear,
For those who are far,
and who are near.

I don't know why I did,
I don't know why it happened,
I just know, that simple act,
the one given to women by god,
as theirs to own,
Has changed me, made me different,
Perhaps I ceased being made of stone?

maybe your friend didn't quite know what she meant herself. :-)

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
