Black Heart

black lady secrets

She had a black heart,

Black as coal.

Cold as a moonless winter.

Wrapped it around her victims,

Strangled them left them for dead.

But they rose up

Sent her an evil lover

To wrap his dark mind around hers,

Rip out what was left of her black heart.

and he left her as a voiceless puddle,

Slowly oozing into the sewer. 

Such are the rewards of such a heart.

Guard yourself well 

Before you join her.

 

 

No regrets

She lived strong

She lived free

From the fear of fear

 

Held her head up high

As blindness and pain took hold.

As the cancer claimed her day by day.

She clung on with her very fingernails

Never asking for pity, never complaining.

It took her piece by piece

She fought it inch by inch.

Now gone she leaves behind –

No stone unturned

No love not expressed

No challenge not met.

That my friends is bravery.

It is a choice to stand up and fight

Or lay down and die on diseases terms.

warrior woman

Many live their lives

complaining, avoiding life.

bullying others

seeing only darkness.

She didn’t and I am proud to call her friend.
