Once upon my being
I wished my life be freeing
From the ties that bind
Happiness held in escrow
Lost in someone’s shadow
Living a life so unkind
On the outside looking in
All you see is a shiny ring
Promises eventually shattered
Emotions begin ricocheting
and tempers escalating
A marriage becomes tattered
What was once excitement
Is sadly no longer vibrant
A relationship ugly and spiteful
Each partner throwing shade
Decisions need to be made
Whose testament is rightful
The battle exhausting
I carry myself with grace
Hope has diminished
My journey unfinished
I disappear without a trace

There is so much passion in your poetry. It is inspiring and touching to read your poems.
Helene, thank you so very much. You are most kind with your words and I appreciate it.
No matter how many times I click on your Follow buttons it never works. I have tried for 2 weeks now. Are you getting followers recently? It does not work for me. sigh.
Yes it works. Are you using iPhone?
No, Windows PC and iPad.
I can ask WP why you can’t and let you know. I read it was a problem for some others but no one ever said they couldn’t follow me. Do you have the online help with WP? I do so I’ll ask and let you know 😊
I click on everything that says Follow on your site… did you get a follow from me at all?
I thought I did a couple of weeks ago. Let me look and I’ll let you know
What’s your username? I have WP online
I just sent an invitation! Hopefully that will do the trick 🙂
I wonder if others are also having problems. OH well, it is probably something that will pass with WP. going to check my mail now.
It worked, thank for the invite.❤
Oh great! I didn’t know I could do that 🙂. Thanks for letting me know Helene and thank you for following me 🙂
Finally made it. Thanks for the help and the invite.
