The Homecoming

When the self betrays the soul

There’s a wounding, a loss

It takes trust and love

For the wound to heal

For the piece that left

To feel safe enough to return

To believe that that betrayal

Will never happen again

What that part cannot know

Is that once it comes back

The self will fight to the death

To keep her home, to keep her whole

Inspired by The Daily Post Word Prompt: betrayed
