Creating stronger bonds...

Creating stronger bonds...

I found myself reading my old writings,

the ones whom I have poured the vast darkness,

loneliness and pain I felt during those days.

I read and read.

Every lines I have composed,

words I chose to represent the burden,

all to let them free so my heart that bled,

shattered into pieces,

somehow no longer appeals.


The heaviness could be deem but entirely,

it's nothing.

Perhaps,

it is for the reason that our hearts slowly in reconciliation.


We're building new walls,

reconnecting broken bridge,

creating better bonds...


So this is what it feels like...

starting over.

Raw.

Bare.

Bolder.

Determined.


I vow to never again be caged in a heart

full of sorrow and melancholy.

I'll be happy...

no, happier,

for the second time.

With you.


Together.

I would agree to that, Lorna. I wrote this after the tough times that came into my life. I am glad that I was able to surpass those moments.

Lots of dark and light shades in this emotional poem.
