Only Time Would Tell

with a hesitant mind
and wearing reluctance
on her ostensible charm
crawling few inches at a time
trying to reach for his heart
that she abandoned not too long ago
aspiring to explore some greener pastures
now only to realize
what she deserted
was the only abode she yearned
the only place she could call her home

Little she knew
the path she was retreading back
didnโ€™t exist anymore
and the heart she longed for
now was a ball of coal
destroyed and charred

Would she be able to resurrect the broken soul
Only time would tell
