He dreamed my thoughts, embracing my struggles
disassembling riotous nightmares
all too grotesque, within mangled daydreams.
Past breaths of daily hibernating pain
trapped within the walls of my battered soul
as freedom lies awaiting sweet revenge.
Gather our love my sweet knight of dire
romance, doting charms upon heartfelt clouds
cascading across our windows of time.
Nothing shall forsake the seasons of us
culminating our marriage and friendship,
undaunted by life’s peculiar events.
Dream catchers twirl as serendipity
fulfills her assignment, as tearless eyes
perceive miracle angels proclaiming
our unstable brood is still blessed beyond
measure, with unfathomable favor.
We live our dreams, embracing our struggles.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
Love should never have an expiration date, nor should love demand unreasonable expectations. Love is tender, kind, long-suffering and merciful.
I embody the dreadful experience and disabilities of a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps; sexually assaulted by the dishonorable bias of three male perpetrators in uniform. I am an overcomer of my skin; yet I struggle in prayer hourly to overcome racism, hatred and past abuse. I am a domestic abuse survivor, drug, and alcohol abuser; later to serve as a motivational speaker throughout the state of Florida correctional facilities. I victoriously served as an Outreach Specialist and received the Good Citizenship award in 2009-2010. I am a writer, poet, and blogger. I write as therapy. Prayerfully I will release my "tell most," autobiography in the years to come. I have lived through many battles, which I chose foolishly, immaturely or nonvoluntarily. I am joyously married and a believer in Jesus Christ.
