Besting your Nesting

overcoming a fall.

  I went outside for the first time in weeks.
The sun was warm as it chased away,
The clouds hanging low in my heart.
Lonely, I’m waiting. Not believing we’d part.

  The sun was warm as it chased away
Those feelings I’m festering yet trying to shake
It keeps them at bay, a small moment I’ll take.
The wind is so gentle as it clings to my tears.

  Those feelings I’m festering yet trying to shake
They pour through my veneer, splashing the ground,
It emptied this vessel. Echoed by a high keening sound.
Drying out the ocean that in me had tumbled.

  They pour through my veneer, splashing the ground,
I fall to my knees thoroughly humbled
Your lies I see clearly. Our love had been tested.
I take back the place in my heart you had nested.

The End
