To Come Out of the Dark

Life's Ponderings

As the night closes in so does the feeling of dread;

the fear, the terror all there in her head.

When will this all end and just go away;

just give it some time is what they all say.

The night brings the shadows and memories fresh;

of the moment that changed her and started this mess.

To live life this way is surely not what she planned;

but life does go on so you do what you can.

A strange sound from the corner of the room she is in;

is all that it takes to drag her back in.

To a place where no one should ever have to go;

a hurt so intense that she tries not to show.

Nobody knows just how hard this has been;

it has to get better but she does not know when.

She tells herself daily that this is all in the past;

but the harm that it caused a great shadow has cast.

The person she once was is gone now for sure;

taken by someone and for this there's no cure.

Morning comes and she hopes in her heart;

that today she can finally come out of the dark.
