Where I was

 I remember where I was
 A fog of anger and sadness
 Unable to speak about it my
 wounds gaping and bleeding
 Lost in my own voice
 30 years of tears and broken dreams
 Bullies, abusers, and sex offenders
 Those who hide in your mind and
 Break you from the inside, you try
 To keep your soul from escaping but it’s
 Getting harder
 Then one night the great spirit taps
 You on the shoulder. She whispers to
 You, “raise your head” she says.  
 And you see her for the first time.
 The sound of her voice calms your  
 beating heart.
 She holds your hand and just like that
 Your healing begins. Your lovemaking  
 chases the demons away, she fills your  
 heart till it overflows. Her wisdom  
 intertwines with yours, she leaves  
 you with gifts that last a lifetime.
 I know where I am, my scars have healed  
 and my heart is full. I’m stronger, the toxic  
 life is but a memory and you greet each  
 day with a smile. Nothing can hurt you,  
 she taught you that and even though  
 your paths diverged. She’s still apart of you.
