home

At the end of the long, tiring road, Waited for me, the wide, open arms. Hastily hidden salty tears mingled With glowing, spontaneous laughter, As your arms encircled and enveloped I close my eyes, peaceful; home, at last. N.B. It’s … Continue reading

Survivor

Through the mire, she dragged On her elbows and knees, Her battered, bruised self Bleeding, ragged and ravaged. Scathing words dealt blame, Told her, to dress better Entice and allure lesser- Be less human, less female. Cast down eyes cast … Continue reading
