They tell her to write soft, invite love to her words.
How? All she knows is hurt.
The truth speaks through every word.
Each word gives insight into every woman who has been scorned, left, and abandoned.
Love never showed up; the pain did.
She desired love, and she wanted it, she needed it.
Yet that’s not what showed up.
How can she write, of that which she has not experienced?
She writes, she reflects, and every night she tastes bitter memories from each tear.
Tears that have left her no choice but to write, and show what can become of a woman—a woman without the gift of love.
Wow! This is deep. How can you experience something in which you have not experienced. Wow!!!
I am really wow’d by the viewpoint of this poem. How can you give what you have not experienced. The only way I can see that being able to be done is if you have seen someone else walk it out in front of you.
