Broken Cage

lightning at sea - by Bill Collison flickr

Dark clouds rolling across the sky
Reflecting all that’s in her eye
Lightning that strikes is all her rage
That she keeps locked within a cage
But that cage is about to break
Leaving destruction in its wake
And all of her rage will flow free
But only sorrow will you see

Betrayal

Woman series #1

She wakes in a haze, the betrayal still burning hot
Memories seared in her mind, her stomach in a knot
Pain is running through her from head to toe
Agony in her heart, moving so slow
Looking in the mirror, and another’s face peers back
This can’t be her own – the swelling, bruises so black
Apologies fall from his lips, he loves her so
Wincing from his touch, she can remember each blow
His love he delivered with such a force and rage
Apologies ring empty, they do not assuage
This boundary crossed she can never forgive
With this betrayal so deep she can’t live
What was done that night can never be undone
She walks away and her tears fall one by one

don't walk away from me now.
