Renewed by Crystal R. Cook

Slivers of light
pierce through
my darkness
slicing the shroud
under which
I’d taken
what I thought
was refuge
Rays of hope
filter through
my secret place
boring into my
psyche like
burning shrapnel
aimed straight
for my heart
Filling the empty
places with pieces
of dreams
and promises
once removed
for reasons
long since
Consumed by
their warmth
welcoming them
home repenting
their eviction
with a vow
to nurture them
once more
