Was it a figment of my imagination that he smiled at me?
Did he notice I blushed becomingly?
Did I see what I wanted to see?
Was it the truth or dishonesty?
Whatever it was, I was foolish and lost my heart
Sucked in by deceit from the very start,
Too proud and stubborn to pack and depart,
Spiraling deeper into the dark.
As the years passed on by, I grew bitter and cold,
Crushed and confused, I was suddenly old,
Expected to do only what I was told
I felt my soul to the devil was sold.
One night I was lonely, unloved and I played
My musical favourites once gladly displayed,
The tears fell quite freely, I was not dismayed,
Ideas and a plan for my freedom were laid.
That figment of light from a far distant place,
The pleasure to feel its warmth on my face,
Lifted up from the shadows by a Heavenly Grace
Embraced me back into the human race.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  3. That is fantastic! You know how some poems just seem to resonate so much with you when you read them…this was one of them.
    As the years passed on by, I grew bitter and cold,
    Crushed and confused, I was suddenly old,
    Love that.
