Like a pebble
Dropping in the lake Creating never ending circles as does your love Wrapping around me Drawing me back Into the zone of danger It was as if written we belonged together But when one agenda differs from the other Holding in hostage Then that isn’t love It is you, a stranger Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing © Word Prompts: - WotD Zone - RDP Pebble - FOWC Written Image by Rondell Melling from Pixabay

Haiku White peaks on the sea Rough waters for fishermen All in a day’s work Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing ©
She was unaware of what she was dealing with when he unceremoniously dumped her. They had fought the night before but she thought he would get over it.
He ignored her calls. Instead sending vile texts of hate and implying she needed psychiatric help. She didn’t understand him. It was hurtful and cruel.
She moved on without him but would occasionally receive message with random, rude comments aimed to wound her heart.
One day he reached out and all the hurt was forgotten and they reunited. Happier and in a better place, they eventually married.
Yet four years to that day, he demanded a divorce and again kicked her to the curb.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
Looking in the mirror she said to herself, ‘One day you will love again the stranger who was your self’

After the Love Has Gone
After the love has gone
and the hierarchy shifts There is always a winner and of course, a loser and the taking back of gifts Who will be my advocate in this frazzled, ugly mess Serenity long gone just hurt and anger remain and you couldn’t care less Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing © Word Prompts - WotD Hierarchy - RDP Serene Advocate - FOWC
