Persephone: Her Story

A follow up on an earlier poem “Persephone”.

She knows where she has been, and doesn’t think
That she could never end up there again;
You wouldn’t spot her for an addict, but
She knows the danger never goes away

She loved a boy, but that was long ago.
She lied to him when things were at their worst;
It took some months in rehab, and more time,
But he still wanted, loved her, anyway

For love’s a kind addiction at its best,
The kind that wants us as we truly are;
They found their love again, and it’s been good,
But she must careful tread to keep her feet

Not everyone a second chance is given:
But she is taking hers
And choosing
Joy
