The night was long
And I was dim
And distractions played their happy part.
Now I feel as if I’ve washed
— washed up on the shore.
Could this be,
this long hard night,
could this be the way?

You think that what you want
will be a certain way
but ways are not that easy
and traveling draws blood
and it is hard to remember where you are going
after all the blows.

  1. This is excellent, realistic (painful) and I love the overlapped line with “washed up on the shore”–that is so effective!! God bless you today–love, Caddo
