Poetry

Broken promises
Empty vows disintegrate
Disappointment swells

Accusations fly
Shot by crossbows rife with hate
Resentment unfurls

Fueled by bouts of rage
Tears come crashing to the dirt
Sobering my brain

Words we can’t take back
Resignation to a truce
Silent, smug impasse

Suffering subsides
Celebrating strength reclaimed
Wounds begin to heal…
