Cycles

I spiraled downward

Hit bottom hard and broken

Even though it was she

that took a leap of unfaithfulness

Leaving me here
, eviscerated

Washing off the black blood of betrayal

Feeling branded, marked and unworthy

Blinded and foolish,

I stagger up on to my feet

‘It wasn’t meant to be’ I say out loud

‘It’s all for a reason’ right?

This. too. shall. fucking. pass. I spit

Hardness envelops me

Protection mode engaged

Fool me once… fuck everyone afterwards

Seasons roll on past me

The rain washes away the dirt

I smile more, make a joke

Friends call again

The sun seems so bright

The days longer than the nights

The heart re-blooms with the sweet morning sun
