Facing Her Tomorrow

She awakens each morning to see the pain and doubt mirrored in his eyes,
and is wrapped in the quiet hesitation that surrounds him like a cloud.
The confusion and apprehension that wars in his soul soaks into her spirit
by his reluctance and uncertainty when she tries to soothe his torment.
The dissidence and insecurity of faith destroyed still echoes in her being,
from when she herself had to face the aftermath of trust demolished
by betrayal and selfish actions, without thought to consequence,
which left her with broken wings that couldn’t carry her to the light,
where the night was everlasting, and every dawn brought nothing
but hopelessness and despair.
Now she faces the repercussions of her careless disregard,
when a long forgotten defiance captured and ruled her,
leading her with a reckless pursuit on a heedless quest of self gratification,
with a full grasp and understanding of the carnage that was heading her way.
