The Nightmare Is Gone

The Nightmare Is Gone long poem

Photo by .FuturePresent.

Moving softly down the stairs with Isa holding tightly to her mother’s hand.
Leanora was looking to the left and the right across the large hallway
The thought of leaving her home was so horrendous to her .
There was really no other way for her and daughter’s safety…

But Isa, her daughter, said momma where are we going?
We are going away from here to find a new home.
I just don’t have to explain right now.
The idea of staying with the abuse from her husband was a continuing nightmare.

The last episode happened just two days before when her husband came
into their bedroom. He was yelling at the top of his voice and stated
I told you never to bother me at work unless it was necessary.

I just about got fired from my job because of your call.
You must never, never call me again. He then raised his hand towards her
with a slap upon her face.
Lenora stood back in shock. But I did not call you at work she stated.
I was at the doctor’s office with Isa for her checkup.

He stormed out of the room, and slammed the door.
Her face still stung from his slap.
Lenora made up her mind to leave him or someday he might kill her.

The phone call she made that afternoon gave her a sense of purpose.
Right then she packed,cleaned the funds from the hall safe.

Now she and her daughter made it to the front door and slipped outside.
The car was waiting for them with the maid in the driver’s seat.

Lenora said let’s go to the place of safety and never look back at this house
the nightmares gone. Speedily they drove away down the lane escaping into the city.

You will hunt for my truth in the hearts of the men you seek You will reach out for my arms at night when its cold, finding nothing but space and time cloaked with sorrow. You will comb the crowds

Gone And Departed

Gone And Departed long poem

Hearts shed people throughout life- like broken angels crossing time- in the form of lovers and loved ones. Some wake you up after they’re gone- others startle you as they depart. Lovers depart like a fife- cutting silence with great
