Journey Back to Me

I haven’t written a poetic duet in some time. I am ecstatic to present a new duet, this time with a new duet partner. Susan, of Polysyllabic Profundities, can craft words more expertly than Martha Stewart can bake a cake. I am honored to have collaborated with her on our first (of hopefully many) poetic duet. As always, I implore to visit Susan’s blog and click on the nifty follow button.

I put you up there,
not knowing that you would fall.
The pulse of the rain matched my heart beat
as I watched you tumble from that pedestal I put you on.
When our love ended you had further to fall.

My illusion of you faded
Your ruse succumbed to reality
As softly as a leaf falls from its tree
That pedestal floated gently to the ground
When at last you unveiled your true self

Although my heart was shattered,
it was easier for me to pick up the discarded pieces.
I recognized those parts of myself that I lost,
eviscerated pieces of my soul that you took.
I could finally begin to rebuild the person I was.

Piece by piece, brick by brick
A new masterpiece painfully crafted
A new me, a stronger me
Able to withstand torrential emotions
Lithe enough to dodge abusive traps

Your journey was a plunge to the death of the disguise
my path was a quest to rebuild what was taken
I emerge stronger, my scars will heal
I take back what was rightfully mine
I put myself up on that pedestal.
