For Now 

For Now 

a Poem By Raquel Swann


Strength and spirit have left 

Snuck out the back door 

I wasn’t paying attention

Wrapped up in a world of misery

Dark clouds blanket the sun 

And not a single ray of light 

Can be prayed or hoped upon 

Never will I feel the warmth of another 

Nor do I derserve such pleasures 

Your empty words of love 

Like Poison Ivy to my skin

Make me ill 

Hurling your guilt upon me 

So carelessly 

As you attempt to clear your 

Precious conscience. 

In my weakened state 

I’ll believe anything you say

I’ll even believe I’m not good enough

For now.
