Eerie Alones & Jams of Traffic

Nicole on needing to catch a breath – now breathing poetry

Nicole Lyons


It’s an eerie kind of alone when your world

comes crashing down and you’re on your knees with

nothing but agony for company.

When everything is spinning out of control

and you are powerless to get back what is gone

clarity hits hard.

How strange it is that when a life shatters

the sun still rises, traffic still jams

and people carry on.

It’s an odd feeling to scream into nothing

and ask for a pause

just for one second, to catch a breath.

Because life should stop for a moment, at that moment

when your world has fallen apart.

Just so you can catch your breath.

It’s a long road.

And when we walk with pain

we walk alone.
