The Struggle

Struggling to find the light in the dark, she finds a hand that lifts her up.

The Struggle

A whisper
In quiet anticipation
Of terror and war
One look
A glisten in the eyes
Of a monster
And a shiver
Travels to her bones
And permeates the wall
She has built in preperation
Of this horror.
This monster
Who stands before her
Laughs at the tears
That well in her eyes
Black sticky words
Burst from his mouth
Surrounding her in insecurities
And self hate
Again he laughs
He knows where she stands
He knows her weaknesses
And uses them against her
For the ultimate goal
The breakdown
Of her soul lands in his hands
He is a sculptor of pain
And agony
He says its in love
But this monster
Knows not of love
Of a warmth in your heart
That burns through all
He knows not of the struggle
To find a hand in the dark
To grasp a handful of air
Before sinking into the waves
He makes her doubt
He knows the words to use
The actions to take
To strip her of every thought
She has ever clung to
He uses her pain
Against her
And when she has broken down
And she sinks to the bottom of that
Dark ocean
He strikes
With pretend affection
With a need to make her his
He knows
In the past it has worked
But a hand pulls her from those
Treachorous waters
And pulls her from this cloud of pain
Still wet from waves of agony
This angel holds her
And lends his strength
To help her
He takes her heart
And fills in the cracks
And tenderly kisses away the pain
He knows he cannot fight this beast for her
He helps her find the strength
To defeat him
