When he bolted out of my life
And took away the twinkle in my eyes
I knew and tasted raw pain
His verbal assaults scorned my emotions
His deception stung my ego
Like the sting from the Bumblebee
My strength bruised and pierced
Tore my confidence into pieces
And spread all over my body
Day turned into night
Loneliness became my companion
Bit by bit, I reclused into solitude
Swam in the pool of my tears
I stumbled and I fell
An agonising fall
I was at the precipice of an ugly defeat
A fraud that almost punctured my dreams
Open to vulnerability
His Love rekindled my breath
And I leaped out of the doldrums
Only by His Grace
Submitted for the Daily Prompt – Precipice.
Peace and Love!
