The audible whispers
"egoistic", "ambitious", "pompous"
shaking the lows of her life.
Fearful she walks down the aisle
silently shunning the evil eye
Shame for not being wanted or loved
moaning in darkness to find the sunshine.
wondering if she could ever be tagged worthy
Sudden arc of the rainbow
after a petrichor of the first rain.
A voice of whisper in her ear
"I am here"
"I am yours, all yours "
Whisper shifts to roar.
The voice grew louder
and said, " You are worthy,
You are strong. You are forgiven."
He loved, caressed, empathized
To him, she was flawless.
Shame no longer sneaked in her heart
She rose like a phoenix
each day, allowing the sun
to kiss her beautiful skin.
She smiled and said " I'm back to life."
