Beyond an Echo

(From Day 25 of the Writer’s Digest November Poem A Day Chapbook Challenge. As I catch up on these, they’ll be out of order as the inspiration comes. Hope you enjoy!)

It took all her strength
to admit she was wrong
and had been since
the beginning.

After years of use,
emotional abuse,
she moved away
from it all.

Months went by that she felt
so empty…

She forced herself
to continue life,
to find herself
to define herself
– her being –
and prove to her heart
that she is more
than just

An Echo

of a failed relationship,
of one-sided love.
