Love has left this marriage, this house Taking with it my peace of mind Equilibrium shaken Identity robbed Feeling naked Leaving me maligned
The view of future obscured with dense fog I claw my way through not knowing where the path leads Sunlight intermittent Brief and encouraging Only to be snatched away From the remnants of tangled weeds
A cloud of black rain doused the fire in your heart The hatred left to fester slowly eating away at your core You are the victor of this battle Taking no prisoners and you now live alone with your ugliness for ever more
Very painful to read. Until I got to the end. And the courage and the relief that the other was finally seen for who they really are and beginning anew. At least that is how I read it. It is beautiful Christine. 🙂
Thanks Jay-lyn 🙂 Yes you read it correctly. New beginnings 🙂💕👍
Most Welcome as always. 🤓💜
Been there too , every word cut to my core . So well written .
Thank you my friend. Sadly, so many of us 😢🖤
This is astonishingly accurate in a household such as this. I know-I lived it once.
Thanks John. I’m sorry you have been through it too. It’s more common than we care to think 😢
There no victors in separation! Beautifully expressed.
Thank you dear Punam ❤️
You are welcome! 💞
Strong powerful words!
Thank you dear friend 💕
WOW…”leaving me maligned” is powerful, and “leaving just tangled weeds”. And the final stanza, final lines…painful.
I found some of your comments in the Spam box 😔 Thanks so much for your lovely comments.
You’re most welcome 🙂
