Throw It Away!!!

There it sits…in the darkest corner of my closet…Gosh!…I thought I threw that box away…
It was suppose to be my Hope Chest…funny how things can change in just one fateful day.
No…wait a minute, now I remember…I was going to set fire to every reminder of him…
Every lying letter, every painful picture, even his shirt that I so loved to sleep in.
I remember gathering it all up in my hands and then throwing it across the room in my rage…
Just to crawl across the floor picking each piece up and holding them in mourning to my face.
I even sat down and read every word of every letter that professed his unending love and need…
But every word felt like a repeated stab to my heart, written only to mock and laugh at me.
I layed there crying on the floor for the longest time, in the middle of what felt like my final end…
And my mind kept telling my heart it was over, but somehow my heart just couldn’t comprehend.
Time passed around me in a haze that day and I couldn’t shake the feeling that my world had been raped…
So I bundled that mess up in one little pile and bound it with a leather tie, binding together my love and my hate.
I put it in a box that was to bring hope and decided that hope was a fabled dream, certainly not real…
Stowed it away to remind me as needed, to keep me to myself…I knew my brokeness would need some time to heal.
There it sits…in the darkest corner of my closet…and it’s been long enough, boxed up for forever and day…
I don’t really need a box for my dreams anymore…Gosh!…I will be throwing this box away…today!
