This poem describes what it was like for me living in an abusive home and growing up. Through recovery and writing I have been blessed to find love, light and peace.
The Space In-Between My Heart
The space in-between my heart
Feels alone and terribly dark
It lays hardened yet quite protected
Its surroundings are dull and extremely infected
With a coating of dust which covers it interior
A dimmed light is shattered in the rear
The components are covered with a mist
Portraying visions of love that were missed
Spurts of water seeps to drown memories sounds
Emptiness fills a cushion all around
Attempts of filling the space are made
But shattered dreams leave a large trace
My heart feels weary from this dreary space
So it sheds love and light to take its place
