Complexities of feeling

leave you breathless,

leave you reeling.

Life's lesson learned,

and hour's, too many spurned;

turned away, wasted

and lost.

Love, far too much

far too little,

pay the cost.

Open doors welcomed,


Tight shut now,

time has chosen,

listened, reckoned.

Olive branch offered.

Taken, tossed aside

and broken.

Too late now

a worthless token.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is about hurt and betrayal.
