Rebirth

Strangled
choking on nostalgia
times pleasant 
no longer in existence
honey soaked dreams
rum tinged kisses
dappled sun dancing over naked skin.
Fingers entwined in hair
bodies taut with passion
fired with desire
never parting
hunger never sated
eyes trapped 
forever locked
tears parting ways.
Rage
black
violent 
bursts through 
turning me into a monster
a being I did not know
scaring me
for that is not who I am
not how I want to be remembered.
Escaping
drowning in sorrow
physical ache in my heart
I miss you
I long for you
I missed you…..
I longed for you…..
I have learned
to live without.
Looking for the silver lining 
to this pain
this heartache…..
You taught me to love again.
You taught me my true worth.
You taught me to trust again.

This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul.
