For Lou

I’m so sorry
That your soul is in
Your mouth when you speak.
That he didn’t do right by you.
That your future is muddied and wet
And isn’t in the direction
You expected.

That I hate him in his actions,
Clumsy words that mean much
And nothing.
That he thinks it’s all ok
When your hot red heart is
Beating into the ground,
Keeping lives together.

That you can’t be who you want.
Trapped and dark but still fighting
Struggling, for you to breathe.
That tears help
But they’re never enough to
Stop the pain.

You are light, air, angel.
You are yes, here, now.
You are the one
Who took
The right road after all
And it will all be ok.
Darling girl, I promise you,
It will all be ok.
Tomorrow is another day.

  1. “You are the one Who took The right road after all And it will all be ok.” – I loved these lines so much in this perfect peom ! The honesty of the emotions that it has been written. Tears help but they are not enough! So true and so beautifully written, Beth 🙂
