The Solitary Bench



In the middle of
a wooded area
stood a solitary bench.

Would anyone really
think to sit there?
I know for sure
I’d be scared to!

Was it put there
to be inviting
or as a joke to see
who’d be brave enough
to accept the challenge?

What comes to mind
when you look at
the solitary bench?

Picture Poetry

Wish not granted (yet)



I wanted it
to be over today.
I wanted April 17 2017
to be the day I was set free.

Free of you.
Free of the torture
I had to relive daily
in my minds eye.

Free of all the pain
you caused our family
all those years ago.

Seeing your face
made me relive the horror.
Hearing your voice
stirred up 6 years of emotions.

Your twisted words
revealed that
your disturbed mind
still needs healing.

I wanted it
to be over today,
but it’s not.
