Hills Like White Elephants

The One I erased, never seeing your face
Continues to haunt me, to this very day.
A difficult decision, so much disgrace
For your forgiveness and compassion I pray.
Once very lost, now finding pieces of Grace
Imagining you there next to them at play.
It must be hard to see your siblings living
Held to the breast, lovingly and still breathing.

Octavva rima format

    1. Thank you, Laura! You definitely inspired me to speak out about this. A very tough subject. Thank you for being my muse. I never forgot Hemingway’s short story and it opened right up to that page when I picked up my literature 500 page book. Thank you, Laura, for your support and appreciating my words. Much love! Tiffany

      1. I learned a long time ago: things hidden inside would end up being used against me by darkness, so I became an open book! I was telling my 23 year old daughter about you, earlier this week and again today. 🙂

  1. One step closer to freedom of the shadows Tiffany. I imagine this pain, shame, and feelings of guilt leaving you like a helium balloon. It floats out and then up and away. Very inspiring of you to be open and vulnerable about these hard dark secrets. Always here for you. 💕

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
