Lessons Unlearned

Lessons Unlearned

I have lost myself somewhere
Here beneath the beauty of the Sycamore trees
The darkness has come
Enveloping me in it’s distaste for divine
My breath growing weaker by the minute
My heartbeat slowing to non existence
My screams deafening yet left unheard
All be it by my own ears alone
There is no turning back now
No redemption beneath the sun’s warming glow
Temptation has bound me in death’s shroud
The answer seemingly vacant
The answer never good enough
I am stripped of love among these shadows
Even that which I hold within myself
So I am off once again
Racing along these tragic pathways
Driving me further down seemingly endless slopes
Here, there is no hope of ascension
The thorns tearning at my skin like fine needles
As coyotes nip and snarl at my heels
I can see it
There, far beyond the treeline
Pleading with me to follow
Wanting nothing more than embrace and heal me
But I cannot break free from this slow suffocation
This sickness depleting me of life
Each blow dragging me further into oblivion
Til I am splain naked and vulnerable on the valley’s floor
Lessons strewn out before me go unlearned
Whilst the starlight withers away to nothingness


Author's Notes: This is a horribly dark work I admit but was something I needed to say. I have a neighbor that has been lost in a abusive mostly self abusive relationship for years and even though the person finally told it was over she continues to stay. I don't get it. I spent all day yesterday trying to convince her to get her belongs off his patio where he tossed them but all she could say is why, I need an answer why and I'm not leaving til I get it. I even had to stop her from sneaking around and peeking through his windows. Mind you that neither one is a prize and they both have their issues but enough's enough. This time throwing her out the door came about from the boxes she didn't get unpacked after he threw her out last time which was two days ago and over the kind of toilet paper she bought. It is definitely time to let go.

This is my view on it...I'll give you 3 dolla's and the grocery store is down the street. Now, you can either go buy the tp you prefer OR there are some nice fresh leaves out in the yard. Take your pick!

I can't imagine ever being in a relationship like that. With my sarcastic nature, oh man, I'd been booted out the door after the first day!

All kidding aside, the truly sad part is that next week he'll call her back and it'll start all over again and even if he finally gets to the point that he doesn't, her next relationship regrettably will probably be no different than the many that came before.

Love was never meant to be that hard. Difficult at times yes but with the right person any obstacle can be overcome. There are people out there who have absolutely nothing but the love and respect they hold for each other. Even those separated in life's storm find their way knowing the minute they look into that someone's eyes they are home and safe and nothing, absolutely nothing can tear them apart. The real question is...why would you settle for anything less than a love like that?
