To suffer from the heart’s demise, forlorn.
the truth sheds light on layers of lies, forlorn.  

I listen each day for the sparrow’s song,
yet winter brings the raven’s cries, forlorn.

Lord nigh, I seek hope only you can bring.
Distant smiles disclose my own disguise, forlorn. 

My angel descends unto the early hours. 
Upon her silken gowns, I close my eyes, forlorn.

When oh when will I trust to love again? 
To think I became all I despise, forlorn.

    A very powerful write Rhonda, it is so good to read your poetry again, I do pray that this is only fiction, for a woman such a yourself, has nothing but beauty to show, never mind the cruel self talks, they are totally useless, so is guilt, be beautiful and walk in the sunlight, God has warmed it up for your tiny feet to coat the cracks, sending you my love and my prayers, that if you hear a bird sing at all it may be the "Bird Of Happiness" love you Girlxxx
