Indelible

Love,
you’ve hurt
for so long.

Rage
and pain have writ
their wrongs
on both heart
and soul, indelible,

but you’re so strong.

Those evil things,
eight-legged, maybe
black wings, have
wrapped you up
in silky strings.

Scars, sinewy,
a web of internal
deceit.

A dark illusion
to make you
disbelieve in the
things that allow you
to simply be.

There’s a secret
you should know…

The blackness feeds on
the fear that you show.

It doesn’t care
for your soul,
so use the time,
inside your cocoon,
to ignore it, unfurl,
spread your wings,
and grow.

  1. What an opening:”Love,
    you’ve hurt
    for so long.” An then the way you tell the story shows what Love goes through why still keeping the love. – Well done and kind regards, J.
