No Place for Rescue

With all good intentions,
he can’t rescue her.
He shouldn’t.
He couldn’t.
Because
she is not a victim.
She is a victor
capable of fighting her own battle
and wearing the winning crown.

Unfailing Heart

her heart endured a lot

it was once
provoked to anger by betrayal
broken as a result of blunt rejection
too tired too weak to respond
bled out to a slow death

and yet
her heart is still
raw
open
fighting
imbued with passion
