She longed for companionship,
The hope for love rose unbidden.
Fed up of her toxic relationship
Uncared for, abused and beaten.
Her endurance had reached its limit
Wishing each morning that she could start anew
She dreamt, as much as her cynical heart did permit ;
For something special, destined for a few
Optimism in her eyes, the first step she took
Stood up for what she believed,
With determination her fears she shook
And let go of the burden she heaved
What her future held, she couldn’t tell
Some believe time heals all, she didn’t.
Because she knew very well,
Bruises heal but SCARS don’t !
