    All the time I thought I was alone...
    I wasn't

    All the time I thought I was hollow

    I know this isn't quite the prompt and it's meant to be read in sing-song manner, but I like it.

    It's simple
    I'm complicated
    I'm bold
    But the lines are faded
    When things are stable
    That's when I get crazy
    Got so much ambition
    But I'm just lazy
    I must be insane
    A basket case with a brain that can't retain
    I talk smart when I can't figure out
    I'm confident that I am full of doubt
    I'm oxy, oxy,
    I'm oxymoronic

    Weathered witches weary whispers,
    Wishes written with white whiskers,
    Whatever wrongness works within
    We wilt, we weep, we ward, we win.

    To do:

    Clean the fridge, (the pitcher's leaked),
    The bathroom mirror is moisture streaked,
    The laundry has all piled up,
    The sink is full of unwashed cups,
    Sweep and mop the furry floors,
    Oil the squeaky, creaky doors,
    Chop the onion for the stew,
    Also, I've got tea to brew,
    Get the kids from school at three,
    Fry the onions, melt the cheese,
    Shovel dinner in my mouth,
    Search for socks inside the couch,
    Soccer practice starts at six,
    Watch the children practice kicks,
    Get the kids all home by eight,
    Wash up all the dinner plates,
    Put the wee ones into bed,
    Kiss each one upon the head,
    Finally, there's time for me,
    But likely, I'll just fall asleep.

    We were warriors in love,
    Clad in heart-hardening armor,
    Striding 'cross the battlefield
    Slipping on the marmor.

    Both of us wore former wounds,
    And neither was prepared,
    Bracing for the pain of impact,
    Our old scars compared.

    Through the battles of the past,
    We have been cut to size,
    But despite what we've endured,
    Our struggles left us wise.

    I've been lost to uncertainty
    In the maze within my mind,
    Wandering through the darkness,
    And seeking not to find.

    Memories inside me,
    Put the pressure on,
    For a time they go away
    But never are they gone.

    Paranoia fixes me,
    Like concrete in my place.
    Decision-making cripples
    In the world beyond my face.

    I came from pain and isolation.
    I welcomed you into my heart.
    I clung to you with desperation.
    So much so ... I tore us apart.
    You loved me with the strength you had
    And some you had to borrow.
    For all your love I still am glad,
    For wasting your time I have sorrow.
