for my sisters who stay long after their hearts are broken

One day you will learn that their lies can’t hold you hostage anymore

One day you will be so fed up with empty promises

 

And when he promises you a sandcastle

you will know the wind can sweep it away

 

you will sit there with empty hands and a dull pain in your womb

 

you will look in a mirror and recognize a spark of hope

 

look deep into your eyes and dig out the little girl you were

 

before he came into your life

 

and buried you so deep in self-doubt and pain that you forgot how to laugh without sighing at the end.

 

I believe in your resilience. You put a phoenix to shame.

 

One day you will burn with a fire so deep. And you will blow their lies away.

 

Like a sandcastle in the wind.
