From Where to Here...

Hurt once again...

I'm failing.

I'm falling.

In the darkest of nights I'm crying...


Full of fear.

In the distance I hear a calling.


"Are you there?"

I listen to the voice...

It's charming.

It's warming.

I take a chance and reach...

Once again.

It's alarming.

A friend you're not, you're cheap...


You're lying.

Where is my trust going...

Thin air?

No where?

Is my heart dying?

My compassion?

My trust?

Where do I place my feet?

In you?

In man?

The hurt it plagues my sleep.

In pain.

No gain.

The friend I seek I'll keep.

In God.

I trust.

He'll teach me not to weep.

To live.

To love.

To trust...

Hey Peggikaye...

You're welcome, and thank you.

Hey Wolfbaby...

Thank you.

Hey Sicilian...

Thank you, and yes I have become stronger through God our Father.

Hey Sue...

Nothing to worry about. I'm okay.

Two blogging friends of mine are concurrently experiencing painful situations from similar yet different hurtful acts. Both have had painful betrayals of trust.

Reading their experiences has brought to the forefront several similar situations that I have experienced personally.

"Watching" my friends work through these painful situations brings back my own feelings of betrayal and hurt.

Too well do I recognize these familiar feelings of emotion.

I am quite past the blinding pain of these experiences, but now I have discovered that I feel a different pain.

A pain of sorrow that my friends have to go through these experiences.

So I felt that I needed to write these feelings down.

Maybe it doesn't 'sound' like it, but it is meant to be an encouragement.

That one can rise up from the well of dispair, overcome, and be a better person for it.

TJ: I'm so glad to hear you are doing fine, but so sorry about your two friends. On re-reading the poem I can see that it a journey from despair to hope - I didn't get that the first time round. I was too overwhelmed at the start to "see" the ending. Anyway, glad to hear you are ok :}

TJ: I understand where you are coming from. I hope the two blogging friends (they know who they are) come by to read your beautiful words.
