End of the Tunnel?

I love poems and creative work especially fictional based content.


With dawn, came happiness,

How strange, she thought,

The darkness that always loomed,

Had suddenly ceased to exist,

She felt oddly light,

As if everything had shifted weight,

She reached out to her reflection,

And whispered a smile.

With small timid steps,

She took her first,

Everything seemed calm,

Uncanny but quite breathtaking,

She felt her heart,

Pressing her pale palms on her chest,

She felt her strength flow back,

Like a once dried stream.

It's over, she whispered,

She was free again,

From the heart ache caused by self,

From lessons not quickly learnt,

She could now see the world,

A totally new spectrum,

But existence is a loop,

She would one day sink again,

But before then,

Is this the end of the tunnel?
