~Peace at Last~

 

She remained

emotionally brittle

like a pane

of cracked glass that

would break

in the next impact.

That year had been an

inescapable

terrorizing

roller coaster journey.

 

 

Determined to comprehend

the happenings

kept her driven

Two children gone,

both were fragile.

Raising a son

with total devotion;

setting limits

giving examples

her love

had taught him well.

He is sincere,

bright,

uncomplicated

any parent's pride,

a true joy.

 

 

Her raven haired beauty,

raised by others,

denied by the father

who helped create her;

grew in wounding confusion.

Her knowledge

of the truth

was nearly too late.

Sleuthing for honesty,

she confronted

the woman

she knew was Mama.

 

 

Guilt ridden with fear;

they needed bonding.

Her child felt deserted,

her mother

had felt guilty

too many years.

Gentle,

kind,

spirited,

yet insecure;

fearing anyone

desert her again,

they began to travel

a prickly path.

 

 

Loving was easy,

crashing down the walls,

disastrous.

A battle of wills,

a siege.

Saying "no"

an unfathomable thought.

 The mother would  

stand her ground,

this young woman

needed redirecting.

Mama learned to say,

"No, enough!"

 

 

Peace within their souls

arrived.

One who loved her

beauty,

vivacity

mind

was unable

to handle

her confused soul.

How can you love

a woman

who fears

loss of affection?

How do you get through

the fences she'd built?

 

It's difficult to love her,

hold her

stand by her.

 

Yet,

he gave her

the closure

desperately needed.

 

In the end

able to breathe,

forgive,

the cloudy,

cracked

brittle

glass pane,

no longer exists

for either woman

Light reaches their hearts

as bleeding tears

forgive the past.

I've been having some health issues, so forgive me if I'm not fast. I'll be away for awhile, I need surgery and then I'll recuperate by the ocean. Next week, if anybody reads this.


I'm not looking for a relationship. I'm married and have a son who just got married.
My favorite thing is helping people further their career in the arts.
