*For the people I love who unknowingly pulled me back from the edge*
Internal damnation Chained to the ground Shackled and fettered Just out of reach, the key to my prison Two steps away from the brink of hell Strong voices pulled me back My family sounded out from all across the globe My true saviors, all of you Iron grip never faltering on my sanity Had it all figured out, this earth better off With one less fallen angel Gentle words and verbal slap to the face My inner gaze forced wide open Never before had I imagined what I'd leave behind On the bank of the Atlantic, my heart opened wide No more shall these blue eyes weep "Grace this desolate coast with your smile" A small voice in the back of my mind "Never again will you fall" "You have people who care all over the world" And for the first time I saw No fallen angel, no demon in disguise But a women with scarred past Who's learned from her mistakes I'm stronger than this, my demons now dead I'm ready to soar once again "Princess" only in meaning "Angel" only in praise "Lassy" only in heritage "Sarah" by given name Woman and human by birth Never was I condemned My wings temporarily clipped.

Sarah I'm so glad you are letting go of your demons my friend. Hard though it is, your strength will carry you through and your wings have found their flight once more, you are loved, you are gifted, and you ARE extremely strong my friend. HUGS Kerry xxxxxx
This entire piece floods with fresh and uplifting emotions, Sarah. A strong write and focussed on the important things. People DO care for you, all around the world. "No more shall these blue eyes weep" - paste this on your mirror. "No fallen angel, no demon in disguise But a women with scarred past Who's learned from her mistakes I'm stronger than this, my demons now dead I'm ready to soar once again" - paste this in your heart (and beside the bed)! "Woman and human by birth Never was I condemned My wings temporarily clipped." - and paste this on your fridge door!! It's fantastic that you can write your feelings so clearly. Love, H x
