In 2011, I was involved with a man who abused me emotionally and psychologically. The relationship left me drained and I had to stagger and claw my way to healing. In that healing phase, I penned this poem from deep within and in it I found the strength to keep mending. I hope it gives someone the strength to mend, to move on and to create.
In this fullness, there is an emptiness
In this noise, there is a hollow silence
In this plenty, there is a famine
In your beauty, there is an ugliness
In your truth, there is a lie
In your joy, there is a sorrow
In your love, there is a hate
In your peace, there is a war
In your generosity, there is a selfishness
In this much, there is a NOTHING!!!!!
