    They say the other side is dark,
    so dark you cannot see.
    But, I've found a glaring light,
    nearly blinding me.
    So deafening was the constant sound.
    No peace, no solace
    could be found.
    There was no concept of linear time.
    My thoughts were jumbled,
    my voice shook.
    God only knows the effort it took
    to live my life, instead of hide
    until I was back safely
    on the other side.
    Although my vision
    is still somewhat hazy,
    I'll be damned if your abandonment
    will drive me crazy.

    Mzblkangel, glad you enjoyed the sum of my words.
    Angelicsage, I am humbled by your praise.
    Poeticlyspeakin, sometimes when we write, we're not quite sure where it's going to end--thanks for the appreciation.

    Thanks for bringing this one back, and for the compliment, phenomenal. I'm sitting here smiling because so much has happened in the few months since I wrote this, and I've grown even stronger. I just thank God for it.
