Guardian of Life

Born
as all are
tiny dew drop
slick upon leaf
golden prism
light breaks
giving birth
to a living angel.
Life was a trial
abuse
abandonment
fear
depression
heartache
piled
rock
upon 
rock
a cairn
built with tears
with broken bones
with broken heart
yet still
a smile
she wore upon her face.
Sticks and stones
faced them all
allowing not bitterness
no recriminations
emphatic she was
to forgive them all.
As night’s last light fades
she stands
atop hill
hands raised
praise given
to Mother Earth
a healing 
if one will
started
with one small forgiveness.

Eternal Agony

Hard
scanning
late night text
broken hearted
truth
right before mine eyes
time
turn away I must
take back my heart
entrusted to you
walked upon
shat upon
left in the dirt
so sure
you were
that I would wait.
Hands clasped
head bowed
praying
(not my thing)
for you to return
hope
soon
sighted in the night
walking towards
hands held out
no more
I can take it
no more
your lack of care
lack of simple truth.
I thought you did
only…..
I have discovered
I have always felt for you
more than you ever have for me.
Good bye.
So long.
Farewell.
Heart
shredded
taken back
tucked away
trust no more
now
alone forever.
