In The Land Of Nowhere

In the land of nowhere
and broken promises
we first met,
disguised as it was.

Moonlit beams
and lovers’ dreams,
we kissed there;
a romantic paradise.

Strolling along sandy beaches,
beneath the stars
we pledged love;
holding each other tight.

I watched, with sadness,
fear, and apprehension
as the veil dropped,
revealing reality’s truth.

A predator lurked
where once upon a time
a prince stood
pledging undying love.

A babe conceived,
changing reality once more;
a love bond,
strong and true.

Strength revealed herself,
healing wounds,
adhering the bond;
an eternal spiritual linking.

The invisible cord, indestructible,
stretched and frayed,
but never severed;
where true love lives.

Sadness and heartache rest
on tired veins;
a reminder, perhaps a warning
to the tethered soul.

Yet, the bond remains
on the heels of forgiveness;
sewn and stitched
with a mother’s love.

Where hope lives
love cannot die,
even in the land of nowhere
and broken promises.
