Darkness of dawn

Darkness of dawn

I opened the curtains to look and see

The sky was overcast it was grey

Has it been one day or perhaps three

This time how long have I been away

Three full days to widen the crack

Willing each breath to be my last

It’s so hard to take this journey back

To have to break the fast

My heart is torn and shattered

As I take this ragged breath

My soul if had one is tattered

My one only hope is death

Painfully I drown in sorrow

No strength left for the fight

I have no wish to greet tomorrow

Or see the morning light

They say it takes time to heal

But have they walked in my shoes

Have they tasted the bitter meal

Of abandonment and abuse
