    Into the murky darkness

    We submerged together

    But out of its depths

    I emerged without you

    Walking in the shadows

    But daily I walk a lil' closer

    Closer to the shining light

    Knowing with true certainty

    That every saint has a past

    And every sinner has a future

    And somewhere between lies me

    Struggling to break free of the past

    Reaching towards a brighter future

    No longer do you have a hold over me

    For I have grown so much stronger now

    And I no longer need you to be my crutch

    Your temptation has lost all of it's appeal

    So "au revoir", this is it, our final goodbye

    For unlike lot's wife I won't be looking back

    Nice flow
    From the darkness submerged
    To the new understanding, strength and light
    May the wonders of life and growth found remain.
    No looking back.

    Excellent write...poetess asimplepoet,

    For I have grown so much stronger now

    And I no longer need you to be my crutch

    Oh my!....This was body-rockin.' So palpably poignant.

    It made me rejoice with you!


    I loved the whole but THIS part REALLY touched me!>>>



    That was an on-time reminder for me in so many ways.


    Thank you.
