The Missing Face

The pain landed in her bones, a forever ache looking out from the wreckage of a fractured soul. What was meant to be a celebration has transformed into a gravestone. She walked the streets searching for signs of the gift she once held in her womb.

Fragmented

She wanted more than hollow words and pretty smiles, she wanted the darkness that lived in her mother’s eyes to touched her. She wanted to understand how someone so fragile could carry so much pain tucked away beneath her rib cage. All the damaged years, every lonely nights tells the same story.

She found a way to shine through the pieces of her fragmented soul.

Poetry Today

You are worthy of joy…..

Come to me

Unredeemed

Broken

Lost

In a world of pain

Where darkness knows

Your name

Come to me

Heart of stone

Wash your lips

Clean, cleanse your soul

From regret and

Remorse

There’s joy here

In this moment

Lift up your eyes

You are worthy of

Joy©

Poetry Today

Unfinished Portrait…..

‪I’ve lost the need‬

‪To love again‬

‪Unfinished portrait‬

‪Held pieces of her smile‬

‪Memories haunt‬

‪The night‬s

‪And the day‬s

‪Wept in loneliness‬

‪I forget how to breathe‬

‪How to sing‬

‪How to smile‬

‪Pain born and die‬

‪In my bones‬

‪My heart forgets‬

‪The taste of freedom‬

‪Oh to see her again‬

‪To feel the warmth‬

‪Of her tender arms‬

‪I would shake‬

‪The heavens©‬
