A place of hope

 

A Place of Hope

 

How do you fill the void

Where in your heart

Love was blissfully employed

 

 

 

The home where we once shared

This place where as lovers we were together

Our hearts and minds momentarily paired

 

 

Don’t get too close though

What if

Teetering on the edge of a rocky cliff

 

 

We were scared

Petrified

why did we not allow our souls to be bared

 

 

It was easier to let go

Lose hope

Together we chose to no longer grow

 

 

We slipped down the cliffs jagged slope

Until all glimmer of hope

 

 

Was gone

Each day tinged a little with sadness

Feigning happiness with a mask of gladness

 

 

Travelling to a place of hope,

With my allies

Love and grace

Our journey to find a new happy place

Never lose hope

Natures Kiss

The soft breeze sweeps a wisp of hair across her forehead

Sadness swallowing her

Her heart remembering

What is gone, how they were

The gentle breeze kissing her face

Her thoughts

Like an old time movie

Flashing moments in time

Allowing, letting the truth that be

Breathing in warm air

Filling her lungs with hope

Letting go

Allowing herself to calmly cope

Inhale exhale

She weeps for the things she knows now

She will learn, accept and glide forward

Nature places a loving kiss upon her furrowed brow

The undulating path that you now wend

Find answers and enlightenment

&

Acceptance of change my dear friend

Something beautiful awaits ❤️

Sunset

Thursday photo prompt: Setting #writephoto


Jagged edges

a perfect silhouette

Darkness please wait

I’m not done looking yet



The suns rays flattering

the irregular landscape

The sun is setting

darkness arrives, no escape



The horizon changes

from orange to black

the sun disappears

It whispers

I will be back

Grief

Sadness

Swallows me

I close my eyes

Your face I must see

I listen for your sounds

Where are you, comfort me please

I see you at every turn

Happy and playing under the trees

Rolling, laughing giving my heart some ease
