TWO STEPS BACK

PHOTO BY PIXABAY

The locket broke today...
Abrupt fall caused its untimely demise.
The timing is uncanny,
For you have now left my life,
A bond sworn never to be broken.
Standing along this pathway of cobblestone,
I see a resemblance to my heart.
It just has to be the same,
Crushed and uneven inside of me.
The flowers are all wilted,
I shun from the evening sunsets.
Shudder to think at times,
What these feelings can spiral into.
If this is forever and day,
Like your previous solemn vow,
Then I am forever trapped in a Pandora's box.
Screaming at the top of my voice,
Which is to no avail.
What corner of this earth am I to turn to?
Wished that locket did not break today,
Firm in my belief it was the one keepsake,
That harboured wondrous moments.
The one keepsake...
That brought genuine solace,
In its bittersweet mystique,
The time swiftly rolled on by,
I was one hour closer,
To being reborn...

A NEW DAWN…

Heartbroken and anguished,

Sorrow, an anvil pressed upon my chest.

My love has gone…

Vanished into the sunset,

That never ending sunset, at no time to return.

Yet through my distress I remain asserted.

I will rise again.

Out of the muddy waters,

Like a Lotus.

To display great purity for the world to see.

I am hidden but not lost,

Melancholy but not despaired.

I await my break of day.

The surface, within my reach.

I will rise and bloom in wondrous fashion;

An awe inspiring beauty,

Full of peace and hope.

My awakening is destined,

Truth was never meant to be concealed.

Yes, out of the muddy waters,

I will rise again.

Just like the Lotus; the epitome of rebirth.

Such a lovely symbol,

On any given day…

REBORN

POETRY

You love me no more,
But the flowers smell the same.
I hungered for that love;
My soul wondered in the Ocean.
I hastily grasped for life.
The message in a bottle appeared;
Said I was my worst enemy.
Is this perilous end my destiny?
Sensations now surround my heart,
Ring round magnetic poles;
My aurora beamed so bright!
Control I redeemed,
The road ahead was clear.
I breathe fresh air,
At last I am free;
A new me...
