I am a survivor. My life has
been a result of many compromises,
skirmishes and personal
battles. There were good times,
certainly. I remember the highlights,
have made peace with the lows—
disappointments, infidelity, deceit,
rejection, and control.
Somehow, I manage to stay
open, after time passing,
despite the negativity. It’s a
place I get to eventually, either
a gift, or a curse, I’m not sure.
Ultimately, hope returns,
shining through the darkness. The heart
heals, its many scars knit together, ‘til it
resembles Frankenstein’s battered heart.
After a while, the pain
becomes tolerable, the past
recedes, now existing in
innumerable files of gray
matter, the bitter, the sweet, the
stories of my life. I
turn the page, a new chapter
