Time envelops a room
Swallows it whole
Each passing second accompanied by a strum of hopelessness
A crack in the blinds
Lights aglow
Greeting me with a dum dum dum on the glass door
It all happened so fast
His manipulation impeccable
Who would have thought that it would be you
Of all people
You.
I race to my chambers
Collect my thoughts
I should leave him now
But that would be cliché
I must not run
He must live on
He must reap the harvest of the seeds he has sown
I thought about getting even but God would have called my bluff
For He handles all and without His permission nothing can be done
Forgiveness yields joy
