Broken Like You

reposted from my other site: Weary Ramblings

The pictures are painful to see,

So the ones hanging, I have removed.

Like the color from these memories,

Because it was never real…

You are broken.

You broke me.

I was broken for quite some time.

But now I am healing,

Though the pain of you will never be repaired.

You remain broken of your own choice,

But I will not break my children,

As I could never live with such guilt.

You took away your love,

And whether black and white, real or fake, I will mourn your revoked feelings.

And still I will love you.

For hate does not belong in healing.

Dedicated to my father and mother, my sisters and their husbands.
