A Poem by TiredHazels

Broken and left in place

In a corner
Curled up in a ball
With thoughts that never leave
And that slowly begin to consume her reality.

Slowly stands
Against the slience
That makes her dwell
On the things that were taken
and never returned

Tears running down her face
Afraid of not being able to come back from all of this
She walks forward against all the darkness
And finally makes her way

Going through her withdrawals
He was her secret drug
That she's finally getting away from
Didn't think she'd be able to breath without him

He told her he heard her
Felt her
Knew her
Yet all he knew how to do
Was cut the last shred of hope she had

Took so many dreams
And when she thought he took it all
She found out she still had enough
To share with someone
Who is worth more
Than his "I Love You's" ever did

Taking the "I Love You's" he said
She made a wall
With these few words she wrote

"Stronger I am for the tears I've cried
Stronger for the smiles that turned into frowns
Stronger for fighting you to get my dreams back
Stronger for walking away
Without a single wave, without any kinda trace.
For standing tall
Against this rain
For finally saying Goodbye
Without a single word."

Stronger today, more so than yesterday.
Knowing she will pass through the rain
And stand another day.

You are a very talented writer. You create a tale of of being lock-in lies and ended with the girl able to see daylight and stronger. The total poem came together with great skill and I like the ending to your outstanding poem. Thank you for sharing.
