Unanswered Questions

The past only an arm’s length away 
A glimmer of what once was
still shines briefly in the darkness
where you now reside 

Savagely robbed of love far too soon
A life taken.  Snuffed out like a candle
Leaving your body paralyzed, unable to move
As if limbs had been amputated

How can a heart still beat when broken?
Thrown so cruelly into
the dark corners of the mind
where questions will go unanswered

What is missing inside of me
that refuses to believe
I am worth more?
That this treatment
I have received
is acceptable?
Instead of being taken
to the top of the mountain
I was left to rot in a ditch
Declarations of love
Duplicitous, dishonorable
yet believable
Now I am a warrior
fighting for her life
with amputated limbs
My heart in need of healing
Doubting and doubtful
Scarred with cynicism
Why do I fear abandonment
by someone capable
of delivering cruelty?
