Doth thou not have validation, can thee not stand alone.
Such questions cry out from deep within as I cower
from pricks of thorns. Weary legs trudge along while
truth peers back at me. O I retreat far within, no
face doth thou see.
Distraught my eyes paint ruby red, rose held thy
skin appears. My tongue thick like a drunkards wretch,
I can not clearly speak. Narcissistic words beget my
mind as his words came tumbling. No value do you
have, no value can’t you see, no value my dear girl, no
value to me.
Shattered thoughts, innards sliced and torn, my heart
ripped from my soul and crushed within his hand. Thy
foundation crumbled with no mercy as he held a royal
flush. There I was, matured in years as youth died a
Let the image of old partners rummage thy thoughts
whilst tears cascade my sad soul. Through stained
windows I see life’s sorrows toss dust all over me.
See me lay across my bed, heart thumping feverishly.
Lonely days, I’m still a pondering, where did the
years go. Living in a hot, one room shack, I truly
want to know. Praise God for His Blessings, Praise
Him for His Holy word. Without God in my life,
only He knows where I’d be, but the shield is
dissipating and finally I can see.
