Shards of memories,
like broken glass,
cut visions of tomorrows
into slivers of anxiety

Paths into love glitter
with brilliant lights
of pain-pleasure enticement

Brave I the pain,
or stay?
Endure brutal agony,
or isolated self?
Step I carefully
into torturous tomorrows?
Will dreaded imagination
of sorrow
place me by myself?


I stepped out,
Then ran, I wept
Time passed, I smiled
Then laughed and loved freely.

On years of moments
I look back
to see crimson trace faded.
Shards are lost memories
I am in love

... So well sustained with the analogy, Rusty. I could feel every tensed nerve and strained muscle, both in the heart and mind. And oh those poor bleeding feet! Unique and thought-provoking. Tender and sincere. The imagery runs as clear as... glass. Like the freshness in this. TY K xx

Shattered dreams can be put together once again but the memories shall remain many years after recovery. Great poetry

I thought of a house of mirrors that we used to visit when the traveling carnivals came to towns. In this write it is as if one has been shattered, much like the images in the mirrors appear, but then returned to whole once you leave the house of is that way...shatters us and tears us apart, but we get back up and are whole once again...even though memories creep in occasionally and the enemy tries to tear down, we can overcome with prayer and love.

"Shards of Memories" ~ A bittersweet being sliced and sewn back up! been there~ done that...The memories of the good times seem to filter in, but only after the bad ones disolve! Our journey can be raised to a different light no matter how bad or is up to us to see the good!
Thank God!
I'm keeping this one!
Love and Peace~

Oh Rusty-friend, you write with such depth of feeling. This journey was obviously tortuous, yet you came through it to feel such genuine and enduring love. Kathleen must be a special lady to deserve such devotion and I have no doubts, we would all love her, as well.
Exceptional work.
