The Storm Is Over.

Love can make you think about the truest things. I for one enjoy the topic of love in its darkest and lightest forms.

the-storm-is-over

Finally I can breath,

Finally I can be myself,

Finally I no longer feel small,

Finally, the rainbow has returned.


After years of being in a relationship that was mentally draining I can say I am free.

After days of having to pretend I can be myself.

After hours of trying to prove my love I can finally believe in myself.

After seconds of trying to convince myself that it would work I am sure that working on myself is more beneficial.


The happiness I can't keep to myself.

I want to stand on top of a building and shout that I am free.

I am no longer captive.

I feel alive.


The storm is over,

The sun is shining bright in the sky,

The rainbow is high above the sky and

I am pretty sure I found the gold at the end of it.

Wow. I am glad the smile and joy of the person in the story was contagious.

Yes I couldn't agree with you more. It's dependency that keeps people in toxic relationships we really need to move and grow by finding out what we want and what would bring us peace.

Thank you so much for your feedback.

This poem made me smile because I can feel your happiness and relief. More power to you! It is always tough to get out of a toxic relationship because some kind of dependency takes over. A reason why so many women stay in abusive relationships.

Interesting. Sad and yet inspirational. I have often felt that life is a bit like a good book. It is good to close one chapter and move on to the next.

A wonderful poem full of the joy of freedom and finding that light at the end of a tunnel. It take courage to walk away from a toxic relationship and your poem speaks of that journey. A powerful write Hertha.

This is a very good poem as it clearly spells out the freedom felt by someone who is in a toxic relationship and then finds freedom. Feeling better about yourself is a good thing.
