left behind by the long forgotten ordeal
buried tale of romantic violence
a lot said, a lot yet to reveal
Hid in a cocoon of insanity
Nothing more than a reason to betray
marked the end of vanity
Out of reasons to run or pretend
as aging waves wash shores of mind
time to see, time to amend
but rue is all that’s there of find
Entangled emotions seek a place
None to give..none to steal
gripping hope with every pace..
a lot said, a lot to reveal.
