Confusion and hurt
when life and love are fragmented images in a broken mirror Jagged pieces of partial pictures forcing them to fit does not make them clearer Love seen only in the abstract where sometimes it was a safe place to be Life in reality too arduous, difficult a price to pay and a yearning to be free But a magnanimous heart always gives benefit to a multitude of doubts A habit to woo the nemesis Glueing back the pieces of a fractured life Compassionate and forgiving Awaiting a new genesis Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing © Word Prompts - WotD Habit - RDP Confusion Magnanimous - FOWC Bjorn is hosting at D'Verse Poets Pub and has prompted us with metaphors

Like dust in a sunbeam
Your closeness is ubiquitous Unseen, but in every particle Only visible in light Your essence omnipresent You nest in my mind Wishful thoughts conjured on my darkest days When wild horses cannot drag me from sadness I lose myself in you and our memories of special moments shared Significant to only us Cherished forever Even though you are gone You remain here with me Your strength hiding in my dark shadows Your presence healing Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing © Word Prompts - RDP Horses - FOWC Wishful - Daily Addictions Nest Image by Couleur from Pixabay
