Not autobiographical

Wordless hostility,

Waves of disappointment,

Tears that sting the corners of eyes.


Criticizing glances,

Icy cold silences,

Orchestrated dances of avoidance.




Disillusionment –

Dreams that have often been mocked.



Like a rock in a stream,

She continues to endure,

Shaped by the turbulence

That flows over her.


With the passage of time,

She has mastered each lesson –

Her eyes revealing the intensity of her soul.


As she sets out in search of her destiny,

She rests assured –

Knowing she is not alone.

This is beautiful and tha analogy of a rock in a stream always slowly eroding to a smooth shiny surface...that is special but strong to think on.

Love the metaphorical comparison between the rock and woman. As the water shapes and molds the rock so does life shape and mold the woman. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.

Maybe not autobiographical, but it certainly describes me during my marriage! Well done, Dawn.

It seems you have found your literary calling, Dawn . . . You have mastered the short verse as you have proven herein, and now you put them together to make for a longer version . . . It works! . . . Your insight is good . . . Your moralistic fiber is pushing against the doors of apathy when it comes to affairs of the heart and dangerous traits in human beings . . . Well done!!!

Yipes! Three more lessons, and you will have earned your degree in psychology! Your imagination is on 'High" with this one, and it is deeper than comfort. A very compelling write, and one amazingly first person. - Bill
