pulled to bleeding extremes

pulled away from one’s dream

how close we travel to beyond

how horrible one’s life is pawned

*

tightrope walking on the sill

there is no magical, happy pill

held ransom by love so misunderstood

shaped and tangled driftwood

*

when will it end, who will bend

how many awful moments will you  spend

wandering lost, no release

when will the fighting ever cease

*

the remedy is not simple

ripple effects leave a horrid dimple

what you say or what you don’t

consequences say I won’t

*

on the outside viewing in

you say stand tall, stick out your chin

you are not the one who will receive the blows

you have not wandered where the shadow shows

*

the fear is deep, the joy replete

there is no hope, only defeat

do what I say or you are on your own

so this is the  path that I must own

abuse is not love

the dew drops of sadness penetrated deep into my soul

as i cried thinking of how he hurt you so

i cried until there were no tears remaining

i cried because  the life i brought into this world was found aching

i cried because your life is precious …i love you so

i cried because you are precious to me, more than you will ever know

i cried because you lost belief in your own worthiness along the way

i cried because you thought his cruelty was okay to stay

now the secret it out in the open

now the words were finally spoken

now you have a second chance

now you have a road out of the trance

be strong in you, believe in you, you are strong

you are worthy,  go to your core, know you do belong

you are worthy, guard your gentle soul

you are worthy, look to yourself to make you whole

you have all you need deep inside

allow yourself belief  in the love that does abide

you are never alone, we are all one

choose this and begin the run

know that i love you and always will

know that i love you…please do instill
