Heartbreak’s heartache

Daily Post fun…

She fears the dark
never loosening its grip
upon heartbreak’s heart so pure,
seen the Lord in many a dream
promises of peace and grace and love assured.

She imagines His existence
too far away
the vision becomes dim
acknowledging the fissure
between faith and belief and suffering grim.

Heartbreak’s heartache
just another day
of Adam and Eve
a serpent to believe
he will always get his way.
