To Love Again - a poem by Audrey Austin

To Love Again

By Audrey Austin

Love let me down
and left me wandering,
wondering how I could ever
trust a man again.

Tears drowned my anger.
My heart, cold and bitter
broke into muddled bits
of frozen fear that refused
to melt into vulnerability.

Love let me down
but time brought reprieve,
rest, and recompense
from one who cared,
one who shared,
one who taught me to forgive,
to let go, let feelings flow
to a safe place where I could
smile and love again.

Love  led me into darkness
before lifting me to light.
