Weekly Photo Challenge: Worn


This post is inspired by photo challenge of the week at Spirit Lights the Way &   Huffygirl´s Blog

Worn but not tired

The dust of these years
that go by,
blurs my vision.
Each day
to go on,
is a quest for a reason.

With each visit
that I make,
your home seems distant.

your shadow grows with desire.

My body is weak,
my feet are swollen,
Yes, I may be worn
but  I am not tired,
of remembering you.

You´ve been here before! Thank you for returning to the Tavern.

      Thanks Nancy.

      I first thought of posting only the photo in response to your post but as i was formatting it, i had a closer look at it and these lines came to me; they belonged to this picture, i felt.

      in numerous ways we can express our pain, being worn but not tired is my way of expressing it. if you make friends with these memories, they become the very reason for you to go on, sometimes.
