    Half Full vs. Half Empty

    Half Full
    I have no regrets...
    At all.
    I put myself out there...
    In All.
    My art...
    My passion...
    My feelings...
    My love.
    I can control
    If I give it,
    So I give it
    Willingly,
    Freely
    And fiercely.
    I can NOT control
    If I get it back,
    So I can't worry
    About your worries
    About reciprocity,
    And exposure,
    And vulnerability.
    I can't carry your fear.
    It's too heavy.
    It gets in the way
    Of my day.

    Half Empty
    Slip sinking quick
    Drowning in thickness
    And darkness.
    I'm fighting
    For something
    To hold on to
    Something stable
    I need a rock.
    I get no air
    I can't breathe
    Frightened
    Alone.
    But quiet.
    Wait.
    Listen to my heart beat
    Beat
    Beat
    Settle.
    I'm ok.
    It's all just noise
    There is no chaos
    In the calm.


    Half empty well wishing for full
    Half full looking for the bottom
    Until I appreciate the glass even being on the table
    And that I am here,
    Neither will matter.
    No more going back
    And forth.
    No more moments of insanity.
    Only moments
    In the moment
    Count.
    Beat.
    Beat.
    Beat.
    Deep Breathe.
    That's standing on firm ground.
