Within the Mind


Photobucket
watching the row boat get smaller...she stood alone upon the wharf
her anger subsiding...she knew her mistake was her undoing
yet her mind still felt the fear...she knew not from where it came
spiraling within the mind were thoughts of accumulated fears

she turned...walked up the hill to the cabin...her retreat her healing
the solitude beckoned her to join...the serenity felt as she neared
the cabin was a haven for a healing mind that cried out for release
spiraling within the mind were thoughts of accumulated fears

knowing she couldnt face the world anymore as she perceived it
she climbed the stairs to the deck and collapsed upon the settee
sitting there quietly...absorbing the sights and sounds...feeling the wind
spiraling within the mind were thoughts of accumulated fears

as the breeze brushed gently against her cheeks...she watched the water
water rippling...as a lone loon sailed across...sounding his haunting song
a doe slowly walking to the waters edge for a drink...as a buck watched
spiraling within the mind were thoughts of accumulated fears

how her world had crumbled was confusing to her...terrifying to her soul
she knew something was not right...she just didnt know where to start
nor where her search would lead her...was her trust well placed...she wondered
spiraling within the mind were thoughts of accumulated fears

no matter...right now she had to heal...she had to rest...she had to pull together
this island...on this lake...away from the world...would give her sanctuary for awhile
till once more her mind could function...face the world...deal with the collapse
spiraling within the mind were thoughts of accumulated fears
