You Never Believed…

You said that

You could not


A world where

Ink and life


And you


To think

That I –

Should raise

My shattered pen.

Where hope

Was lacking,

I filled it with ink

And when

All the world

I knew of love –

Was abandonment

Who wailed

At the thought

That tears would

Stream down my cheeks?

It was there that I cried

Upon those pages

And it was then,

That I carried myself

Through the storm.

I have learned

To lay myself bare

Upon the page

And I worry not

The reply.

As I live and breathe,

Ink has filled

My once hopeless life

With beauty.

I shake not,

Weary in my own shadow

Nor do I lay

My dreams aside

I shall write upon these days

As if they were my last

I shall bloom

And I shall blossom

And I shall remain strong

If only because –

You never believed.
