Those sleepless nights
Where I see myself
Cradled into the ugliest memory.
Bleeding over the unheard agony,
Penetrating deep into my soul
Crying over the faded flickering light.

Shattered ardour,
Weakened yearning
Hopeless woman
Gone the divine.

I broke out the chain
of torturing evocation.
Unfurled my pinions,
Soared over the sky.
Unearthed the pieces
that you've buried beneath.

I'm back to life sturdy and still,
I'm over you and I really do!
Don't ask me when
Nor take me back.
I find no way
to the old misery.
A poem inspired when I freed myself from the shadows of yesterday.
