Rebuild

Abandonment circles overhead
Anger and betrayal whirl above
Loss swirling with the other fears hanging above me

Aware there is more terror but terror seemed to be the shadows of bigger more savage fears that daily threaten to overcome me
Fears influence my behaviors leaving shame in its wake
Shame that I let fear control and rule my day

Helpless as my mind is preyed on by a flock of savage vultures
A threat pestering my mind
Pushing me into brittle depression

Resignation too bleak an end yet still a temptation I nearly accepted
But I just decided to rebuild and that is liberating

The same fears were circling like vultures again, picking at the bones of my sadness. -Kerri Maniscalco
