I craved attention when love left coldly through the door…

And I chased after you until my heart shattered upon the floor…

Picking up the pieces and putting my life back together wasn’t easy…

I had to slowly remove the poison and shades of nightmares stealing me…

The worst part of leaving was the pain of healing and recovery…

Because denial covered too perfectly the trauma filled doses of memory…

But the material world of fantasy couldn’t replace the emptiness inside the secret parts of me…

I didn’t know it then…love for myself was the only way to believe in my own worth and imagine new possibilities…

Now the dreams I cherish beyond anything carry the promise of love, compassion, and humility…
