Poem of the Month – September 2019 – Shaken

Shaken

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
