Reflections of a Darkened Heart

August 25, 2011
That one summer in Atlanta
Swinging on a frayed rope
Taking a deep breath
Slamming my locker closed
Splashing into ice cold murky waters
Playing golf at Little Miami

Two chilled hands gripping one another
Under a toasty blanket
Putting in headphones
Blocking out a dissonant sound
Thinking about my past
Writing about darkness

Hugging my grandfather
Falling in love with a Georgia girl
Gulping down a frosted cup of Sprite
Madeline was the girl’s name
Demon Hunter blaring in my Chevrolet
Swishing a three pointer in my backyard

Nightmares of what came before
Death of a friend
Spirit Song at KI
Juicy Montgomery Inn ribs
Chasing dreams of a love before
Handing out water at the Flying Pig
Speeding down a silent street
Not having a care in the world

Moving onto another chapter
Chapter 18 of my life
My best friend’s advice
My mind’s awful thoughts
Volunteering at my church
Junior Higher’s piercing screams

Sitting alone in my room
Running on a road meant for cars
Freaking out about a test
A relationship consuming my life
Prom during Junior Year
Dressed in black attire
Reflecting my life on the inside

A cold morning
A hot shower
A heavy backpack for carrying
A light book for reading
An iPod for listening
A phone for texting

One love away
From being happy
One tear away
From being sad
All these things reflect me
And tell who I really am
