All My Todays

Fragile Yet Free

Today

Sometimes in life we face a battle that is hard to fight, but we have to try. Strength comes from deep inside, and from the generosity of our friends. Keep your friends safe and close to your heart, you will never know when you will need them.

Today, the magic that once was, has left a bitter taste

I feel so stupid now, and glance downcast from your face

Gentle words once comforted me, spoken from your heart

Instead I am riding a bitter storm, torment in my eyes, depart

“What can be done is all I ask” I don’t want pity anymore

I love the strength the daylight brings, my fretful dreams I ignore

Life is just a challenge, a roller coaster of waves

Kindness is not the answer that I crave for all my days

You left me so abruptly, my heart left shattered in stone

Yet the precision of your letter placed, hasn’t left me alone

For each time I hold that crumpled page, stained from time and tears

I can hear angels’ wings so soft, so gentle to restrain my fears

Although my life is in turmoil and I admire all your finesse

My love will be my legacy left pounding on your chest

I am now without fight, I have thrown in the towel

I cannot force the issue, the gladiator won, hands down

Heart wrenching and powerful poem. I read all the comments and was glad to read the one you left back for Princess Prisca that lets us know you are facing a painful situation but are alright.

Like b. Malin said, I hope there will be better days ahead. It's obvious that many people on Hub Pages care about you and follow your writings.

Take Care of Yourself.

Sending a Hub Bouquet,

Gail

Princess, thank you so much for stopping by my little space in Hub Land. Your words of love and encouragement help to heal the pain. This poem is dedicated to my partner who is in a desperate place at the moment, not knowing which way to turn. Hopefully, he will make the correct decision for both of our sakes. Net :)

Every time I am in a painful, unbearable situation, I kept telling myself, this too will pass.

Feel the pain today, cry it out, and remember, it's just passing, it's not constant.

Your poem evoke painful memories for me. Thanks for sharing.

thebluestar,

Blessings be unto you.

What a sad, beautiful, powerful piece. Thank you so much for sharing.

Pain is something that we all have to go through and each one of us has a 'process' that we must endure...

The saying is true: ...It does get better in time ~ the problem is, we never know how much time... (Better will come when you least expect it.)

I would like to invite you to visit 'my humble hub space' ~ you will be most welcomed and just maybe you will find some encouragement there.

God Bless You!

Ciao...Princess Prisca
