Leaves of Lines [Poetry collection]

A compilation of my poetry ranging across the board. [I'm not depressed, by the way] So far, these are all published as separate movellas, so you can either comment here on the whole, or if you want to leave comments on a specific poem, feel free to find that one in my list. Either way is fine with me! Photo cred: https://www.flickr.com/photos/109065142@N02/sets


21. Enough



How thin is thin enough?

When you’re too weak to move.


How pretty is pretty enough?

What have you to prove?


How deep is deep enough?

When the cuts can’t hide the pain.


How long is long enough?

When joy goes down the drain.


How strong is strong enough?

To stand up to the hurt inside.


How wrong is wrong enough?

To give up your foolish pride.


How close is close enough?

To being almost real.


How far is far enough?

That you don’t have to feel.


How bad is bad enough?

That you can finally say goodbye.


How much is quite enough?

That you no longer care to try.


The way you are, here and now,

is more than thin enough.


To believe less, I wouldn’t allow-

you’re more than pretty enough.


Stop the cuts, stop the tears,

they’re quite enough the way they are


Just remember the people here,

By your side, never far.


Don’t run away, don’t hide your face,

it won’t do you any good.


Face your fears, let us in,

for by your side we’ve always stood.
