The Only Champion

While all sleep
  Sweet dreams
  † † Snuggling down
 † † † † † Deep in REM souls

Here YOU sit
 † † Lit room
White noise
 † † Backgrounding
Stacks of papers awaiting
 † † † † † † † † † † † † Your marks

Instead
You cry
Tears bubbling over
No damm
No gates
No catchalls
To stop them
For pain knows no boundaries
At times

It catapults from
Tiny snags in the fabric
 † † † † † † †Of life
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †To gaping holes
In the crevices
 † † † † † † Of living

As it moves
It pulls every droplet
Filling with such passions
As alight the broken heart
Thought to be healed

It sends question marks
 † † † † †to marr progress
And stumble you into
 † † † † †A ball of
Scraped knees
 † † † † †And a bruised spirit

And just when Pain
 † † †Thinks itís won....
Thinks itís taken you to your knees...

You stand.
 † † † † † Strong.
Powerful in your tears
Powerful in your pain
 † † † † † Knowing...
 † † † † † † † † Owning....

That this pain will
NEVER
 † † † † Win
NEVER
 † † † † Define you

For you know that the same cracks
In your heart
Are the ones
That let the golden light
Of life and love
Shine through

Blinding Pain
From victory

For there is
 † And always will be
Only one
Champion
 † † In the end....

Not Pain
Not tears
Not broken spirit
 † Cracked soul
 † † † Or creviced heart

No.

The only champion
 † † † † † † † †Standing
 † † † † † † † †Amidst
Bloodied gravel
And shredded dreams
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † Is
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † You.

The inspiration for this came first from finding out my ex is engaged to my former dear friend whom he had an affair with while we were married and my daughter was going dress shopping with her. Even though we all get along (because I refuse to let bitterness live within me), it stung because I donít yet have that special person.
The twist to victory in this was inspired by my being blessed to have wonderful people in my life. 😌
