Awakening

Living in a herd of sheep

I felt completely desolate

subsisting in my intimate

inferno



The derogation of my spirit

Your belittlement

Sharp as arrows

Piercing, seeping



Murky Fugue,

made it, simple to obliterate

Who I was

I became nothing



Falling from grace

Smiling to survive

The mask had become

Part of me



Suddenly a voice

You are free! Run away

unfurl your wings

and fly



Assurance, Boldness

Intrepidly

True love

Really did rescue me



Twin flames burned

The inferno away

My demons sought refuge

In his dark places



Holding hands

Blending thoughts

Words of encouragement

I have been found


Alas I have been found.






Source

Metamorphosis

I felt worthless

Used up

Disfigured, and decayed

I was adrift

In his words



Who knew

what a contrast

instead of mockery

reassurance

desires become attainable



Applause from the stands

From a man

Who believes in me

Who makes me believe

In myself

      An encouraging poem. I am happy for you that your partner has the ability to turn around your self belief. Great message of better times and people to meet.
