A GHOSTLY POINT OF VIEW





I’m broken

I didn’t think I could be

not even through years when love was withheld

I persevered

I survived.



I’m broken

I didn’t think I could be

not  through physical abuse and death threats

I overcame

I survived.

  

I’m broken

I didn’t think I could be

not even through your lies and betrayal

I forgave and looked forward

I survived.

 

I’m broken

I didn’t think I could be

but my will is non-existent

my heart unrepairable

I may not survive.

 

I’m broken

I didn’t think I could be

I pray for light

in the darkness

that has become my soul.



I'm broken

I didn't think I could be

I looked inward for answers

and found that the monster

was me.

  4. Hi Renee,

    Intense... to say the least. As always, packed with emotion and self awareness. Well done! I am HOPING to finish my entry soon... taking longer than I expected. Fingers crossed.

  5. I like it! Very good ending. I always remind myself that if everyone is acting like an ass, the problem is probably with me, not them. LOL

  6. Looking inward always provides more exhaustive and relevant answers than looking outward. And I suspect a lot of humans could say 'the monster is me' with perfect truth!
