My Love Is An Anthem

My love is an anthem

Blooming red behind my rib cage

A pulsing of uncertainty

Echoing that humanity

Is cruel

That no one listen

To the vail of silence

Splitting the earth

Wide open

Grief stricken and tired

We blame the past

And damned the future©

Poetry Today

Don’t tell me to get over it!

Don’t tell me to get over it

Until you’ve loved

With every bits and pieces

Of your soul

Until you’ve scraped up

Your dignity off the ground

And walked away

Leaving your heart

In the walls

And the floors

In the silence

And the promises

That were shattered

Yes

I’m in a better place

But don’t tell me to get over it

Until you’ve walked the walk

Of a desperate wife©️

Fragmented

dandelion-4144858_960_720

 

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.
