Playtime Lost

I know it’s been a while since I’ve come out to play –

Emotional turmoil it has been these past days.

The highs and lows, being constantly wound –

Light and darkness, did surround.

Love was gained and loved ones were lost –

Friendships were strengthened where others were tossed.

Cheats to liars, twisted words that were said –

Lived with the screaming that was all through my head.

Strained and stressed for many a day –

Playtime became painful in so many ways.

For a little over a month the words would not come out –

Thoughts turned to dust an irrefutable drought.

With God’s help, I pushed through the screen –

Today is the day, the fog has lifted from me.

So here I am, changed and renewed –

Back to the proverbial sandbox to come play with you.

About Dawn Marie Paone DiMartino

I had lived most of my youth in New York, but have been a native of Florida for over 20+ years. I am recently remarried, a mother of 4 adult children, 5 grandchildren, and a retired analyst. My passion for writing and drawing started at a very early age. I have continued through my adult life taking a pen to hand and compiling my innermost thoughts, feelings and expressions on paper. My writing and drawing keep me in a calming frame of mind when I am putting it all down. Some/Most of my writings can tell you about my personal story. I have published 4 poetry books, 3 children's books, and have been involved in 4 anthologies.
