The In Between

For My Beautiful Warrior

by Carmen H Gray

Somewhere along the road

Between sickness and health

Between nightmares and fantasies

A new me was forged

The poisons churned inside me

And those long, shadowy nights

When my hands served as my sight

Forever marked me

Like the permanent scars

That show where I was sliced

Somewhere along the way

I rose from this place

My wings unfurled

My strength anew

My heart unbroken

I came through

The In Between
