Event Horizons

Impossible to find a loving estate,
From someone who only knows rage
She still lives within her trauma
The child, the teen, the adult, only knows drama
With enough time the scars mend
Another failed bond, a memory to tend
In the museum of shattered dreams I call my head,
Regret lingers, repressed dread.

There’s a point in time she was a confidant,
Loyalty, I learnt was rather scant
Expensive lessons, emotional currency,
Billions in time, a few dimes in despondency
Lifestyle of the rich and famous
Pretense, it’s the cover of Vogue looking all glamorous
The reality it’s the darkness of a quiet room,
Thinking, who would care if I’m gone too soon?

But I won’t let her have the satisfaction
Disloyalty would not end in my extraction
You wish them well and you move on
The event horizon is just another storm
It may bring fame and fortune on a rising tide
Make sure you catch the wave and enjoy the ride
That’s the story of life, from glory to glory
Until it ends, there’s always more to your story.

  1. Wow, amazing, spot on and fascinating blog , it is written in poetry form and it does explain the event horizons of a person. From the start I see a description of this person, a girl who is dramatic and with unworked out relationships but as I set my eyes below I see that she was once confident and loyal, that is just how event horizons are, they transform because we all experience dramatic and life changing events in our lives!

    Well written post Byngnigel🙌💯

  3. Childhood traumas are sometimes the most difficult type of trauma to deal with..for some they don’t even know they have it until a trigger made them see it when they are adults already.

    1. Most events are suppressed. Part of the coping mechanism. These are such sensitive things to write about. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment Ms Navas. Truly appreciated ❤️🙌
