Absence makes the heart grow cold

I have been absent for sometime
My words have been held in transit
Just waiting to form a semblance of
Rational understanding of the journey
I have over the seasons encountered

How does one explain the feelings of betrayal?
One's own stupid ignorance to believe in another's
Promises of wedded bliss to eventual threats of murder
Belittled, humiliated, degraded by a callous wolf
In sheep's clothing I was left wounded in heart
My souls journey back to wholeness has taken time

Only to then engage on another tempestuous journey to hold onto
A beloved child in desperate despair of wanting to end it all
Not once nor thrice but five times I have tried to hold 
His heart and head together 
Fighting the shadowy world of broken dreams, alcohol and drugs,
determined not to allow the darkness to take him out I have 
fought the dragon of despair till emotional stability and help was there

I have travailed in birth yet again determined Life would win
Spring has followed those Wintry bleak cold grey and barren
Times of stripped bare branches that now bud with Springs New Birth
Hope arises like the Sun's Dawn as it chases away its darkest hour
The Son's golden light is strong to heal from the horrors of-
The Dark Knight who came to lie, steal and kill.

    Strong emotional content Brenda but let me just say your abuse was nothing you did wrong but a sickness within him. You are better for the freedom. Namaste.
