Taken Away

In Response to SueW and GC’s Weekly Prompts Word Challenge Weekend Challenge: OLD

Heart aches
broken open anew
after vowing
it wouldn’t be you

That would then
burst through walls
built over time and age
forging scabs unhealed

A tiny spot left untouched
hoping some day
to feel safe and loved
until I was old

That day did come
out came the sun
even the falling rain
danced with joy

That a woman
had found
the one true love
only to have it taken away
