Fragile faith shattered

as the sunrise bled

through darkness

a solitary candle offered

a glimpse of light, flickering

Regret, an option

far wiser than despair,

played in the shadows

that single piece of mail

shredded beneath a cold window

Shameful as it might be,

what was passed was

decidedly in the past

And so she welcomed the new day

filling her space with hope
