Revolving Door Got Stuck Today

by A. Willow Bends

At my age, this stage in life,
emotions pass through a revolving door.
I am inept to stop the spinning anymore.
Today it stuck on thoughts I abhor.
Weary, not tired, but distraught,
overwhelmed from battles not yet fought,
my sister, recently widowed
with Parkinson's Disease,
how can I contribute
to bring her peace and ease?
My son in process of divorce,
by no choice of his own,
recovering he slowly is,
bits and pieces he has shown of gain.
What can I do to ease his pain?
I've reached the age of sixty,
will one day face a certain end.
I want to pre-plan services,
not following expected trends,
must put that all in writing,
so it gets done in my way,
something not to be put off,
we cannot foresee the day.
So, I am weary,
feeling dreary,
the revolving door got stuck.
My mood is often positive.
Today got stuck in muck.
It sucks.
Want to lie down with my beloved,
be held and maybe cry.
He doesn't deserve emotion malfunction
nor understands when or why . . .
it occurs.
The revolving door will unstick tomorrow,
but this night there is no one "on call"
to deal with the weary breakdown of parts
to fix the damn door or my fall,
no mechanic for revolving door meltdowns,
it's a fix-it yourself kind of task.
I've not been given instructions
and tonight there is no one to ask.

Feelings writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a poem sharing an emotional feeling about something such as: life, death, war, injustice, marriage,loneliness, loss, hope, laughter, or a subject that might not be listed. Express an emotion such as fear, anxiety, love, hate, disgust, indifference, etc.

It has been one of those days that simply engulfed me with sadness and being overwhelmed and it drained me, so WEARY is my emotion of topic. It is an exhausting emotion and not only has an effect on me, but those around me and I do hate it. It is not like me to not have a way to deal with problem/solution. Tomorrow will be better. The revolving door will magically work again. Ever hopeful.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
