Inside Out

written by: Rebecca Lombardo

@BekaLombardo

 

Things happen
People steal
Hearts torn apart
Slowly heal

When you walk right by
A tear falls from my eye
I wipe it away
And go on with my day

Never certain if I'll hear from you
You're blissfully unaware of what you do
When it's answers I seek
You have no words to speak

The darkness dances in front of the light
Signaling the start of yet another long night
Crossing that bridge, I nearly fall
Couldn't you have paid any attention at all?

Yet, I held on with all of my might
Knowing I stood alone in this never-ending fight

My name is Rebecca Lombardo and I’m 43 years old. I’ve been happily married for 15 years. I live in Michigan with my husband and cats. I am a published author, a Huffington Post blogger, a contributor for The Mighty, and a podcast host. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 19. I have battled that as well as several other conditions for over 20 years. In 2013, I attempted suicide. Grateful that I survived, I decided to tell my story in the hopes that I could help others choose a different path.
