"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Days of Light


This is where my heart used to crack every time
When you were never there for me
When I woke up alone and I breathed eons of solitude.

Behind this collar bone
Resides a muscle that you managed to break many times.
Not that you ever cared about it.

There was nothing harder than to look in your eyes
And find nobody at the other end.
But time flows and all my wounds are healing.

New days rise above full of light
Warm arms cover this battered soul of mine.
The memory of your broken dreams lives no longer here.

  1. Well done Ela. Well done for being able to move on. I know it hasn’t been easy, and it may still be difficult, but I am here for you any time you need to scream and vent and yell.

  2. So good to see you healing Ela, and those “warm arms” must be very blessed for the pleasure!

    • The only arms, my only love
      Two warm arms sent from high above
      Keeping me safe and washing all past sorrow
      Their blessed heavenly space is my tomorrow.
