It came and shook my soul. Leaving me bereft of joy as the dark cloud of sorrow settled upon my heart.
Crushed. I clawed through its darkness.
Choking my hopes, it summoned loss to steal my light in solitude. My heart’s desire, left in its wake, shattered beyond repair.
Yet, I rise, broken and scarred – determined to find my light as I lie awake at night. Thinking of a star lit sky, where dreams forever sparkle when they die.
