CLOSE THE DOOR

Pushing thru the dark clouds
Finding your way clear
Finally getting over him
No doubt, no pain or fear.

Years of meditation
Falling to your knees
Prayers for strength and guidance
All you need is to believe.

There is life on earth without him
True love and honesty
He filled your heart with darkness
What a tangled web he weaved.

Devalued, mocked and ridiculed
A master of the game
He played you like a violin
What you felt was guilt and shame.

A scavenger, a con, a thief
Who somehow found his way
Into your mind, into your heart
But, he’s not there to stay.

Picking through the remnants
Broken pieces on the floor
It’s time to let go of memories
It’s time to close the door.
