Unsettled Dust

abstract watercolor illustration depicting a portrait of a woman

Her world plastered with loss and loneliness.

Nowhere to hide. Nowhere to turn.

Cruel words haunting her thoughts…

Too many cruel acts leaving their mark.

Beaten by love.

Nowhere to hide. And nowhere to turn.

An empty wallet with nothing left to give.

Two little girls needing shoes.

Their mother needing a miracle.

Her world plastered with loss and loneliness.

And nowhere to turn.

An empty house filled with love. 

The pain contained with no room left.

Left for dead.

Fighting to breathe, one breath at a time.

Tiny arms lending strength.

The strength to conquer today,

and face down tomorrow.

This being the third poem inspired by, and dedicated to the same courageous woman mentioned in two previous posts, I’ve created a new category: ‘Silent Echoes’ for any poems dedicated to her. I’m looking forward to this series of poems ending in triumph.

    1. That means so much to me Amy 💜 I try to keep my poems honest and to the point. I’m also learning to keep them as simple as possible. It seems to work better for me. Thank you Amy for your encouragement, support and beautiful comment 💜 (((Hugs)))😊
