A New Beginning

A look.
It all began with a look. Those penetrating eyes holding me captive, rendering me immobile.
Frozen in time. In that moment. Where it all began...

A word.
Just one word spoken with the tongue. A series of words, of syllables strewn together,
cutting deep like a knife, drawing the blood from my very soul...

A touch.
The connection of flesh upon flesh could be both tender and painful. The color that is left behind, once a blush, but could turn hues of blue, green, and purple...

A life.
My life, changed in an instant. Once full of energy now drained of all the feeling, all the emotion.
Empty. Worthless. Nothing...

Hope.
A friendly smile. A kind word. A patient hand, a gentle embrace. Working together to pull me from the abyss that I was drowning in. Carrying me safely to the shore...

Faith.
Believing there is more out there. Pain that turns to happiness, no longer a life of sorrow.
Tears that are now dried, clearing the way for a smile to curve once again...

Love.
The wave of emotion that flows through me. Teaching me that there is more. Giving me strength to go on. Pushing me toward the surprise of a new day...

Saying goodbye to the sunset of the memories.

A new beginning.
