Dark lines streak across the sky
Mascara of creation smudges
As drops on cheek flow
Chest heaves in disappointment and grief

Hopes once bound in belief
Melted in the crucible of life
Distorted from intense heat
Liquefied and molten emotions rage

Years of dormant pain erupt
Volcanic raw emotional lava
Mount Vesuvius spewing destruction
Purging decades of pressure

Wrath of neglect and abuse
On display to the world
Only in purging will relief come
Exposed rawness tapped

Out of destruction seed of new life
Letting go of all that's been carried
Unbound to the past
Cracks the casing around heart

Love seeps through
Displaces false comfort
Prison doors open
Soul liberated and free
