40ce96627e2a59381507324cc14e8c38She has gone down with the light
into deepest water
where frozen the eyes denied
see murkily through specter
she has gone down because you deemed her
and all your entreaties and kindnesses
were sunken lies
all the time you waited
like the brown recluse
sits watchful
beneath porch steps
for the unwise
she has gone down because you needed her capsize
to stick the thorn deep and watch her bleed
for those who dare to live inspite of you must pay the price
we are nothing if not accurate
in our thread and release
the arrow
a light airy sound
blistering cloud
cutting through
pierces its mark
and she must sink beneath the waves of your wrath
to ensure justice in an unjust world
that is your closure
as you put away
the disturbance of her
and feel relief
to rid yourself of your reflection
echoing back through the trees

      1. Your words always pack a powerful punch! And I’m sure this one was warranted! So woe be to the one it’s aimed at who will hopefully think twice about her egregious words and/or behavior!

          1. Oh I see! It’s just hard to believe that people can be that unkind! It actually borders on cruelty! Hope all is well with you!😊❀️

          2. Ah my friend how right you are. I don’t think everyone is like that, and I do think those who are, may be through no fault of ours, but their own agenda and something we do or do not do, that ‘triggers’ them. For so often I see this is the case, that someone is seething and if you are in the way you’ll get an eye-full. If we realize we are such a little part of someone’s cruelty it can take a bit of the sting away I hope! xo BIG HUG my friend!

          3. Well to be fair to aforementioned hurtful people, whilst I know they were very unhappy I too have been very unhappy and yet did not hurt others, mostly because I knew what it felt like and also had no desire to hurt someone for the pain I felt, if anything I would turn it on myself, which is perhaps the other way people deal and it is no better as you can literally destroy yourself. That said, better yourself than someone else. Ultimately totally agree w/u that if you are content/peaceful within you will not hurt others, but even those who are in pain do not have to.

          4. You are so very right! Because with all the pain physical pain I deal with I could be a real bitch if I chose to. But like you I choose not to do that! Love you❣️😘
