Shadow Exposed

She has seen it! That last hidden soul tie. She knows it by name. This changes everything. A dragon has lurked and burned her for far too long. Smooth in it’s ways. Smooth in it’s gaze; Capturing her family too. Generations silently seared. It’s chains have been strong. (Draws arrow.) Not for long. “I’m stalking you now. Such a specific name. I was tricked, I’ll give you that. I thought you were something else. Your name is not anxiety. Your name is not addictions. Your name is not despair. Your name is not chronic pain. Those have been laid down. When I am weak, he fights for me. They have not spoken into my identity quite like you have. Hah! I heard you shreak as you were exposed. Lizard get under my feet! I won’t even speak your name, but how lovely to not feel your fangs. I see you’re wounded by my arrow. Here you go.(Steps off of monster.)
I think you should run.” (In comes the sound of a drum.) Her heart beats with the King’s; Cries out boldly enough when she can’t see . A whispered name. “Daughter, tell it to leave.” She did… Collapsing into a river of peace. Heaven’s army starts to undo what the monster had done. Breaking THIS chain from off of her loved ones. Breathing deeply. Thanking him.
Claiming the visions he shows. From mystery to victory, she has never walked alone. Her loving King unseen, has sealed the fate of these enemies. Her heart is alive, it is focused,…. and free.
“I know of the war and it’s ending.
Powerful grace,
and love set ablaze… IS WINNING.” -A.K.-

  1. A beautifully captivating piece of writing, Ahnibeth. It has very vivid imagery.

    It has been months since I’ve seen you publish anything here. How are you doing? I hope you are well, or perhaps, as well as you can be. Love Ellie Xx πŸ’–

      1. I’m so glad to see you back. What’s been going on for you? Sounds like you’ve been incredibly busy. I do hope you are well. Sorry to hear you have had a lot of loss this year – that’s always difficult to deal with. I’m glad it’s been growth-orientated, though. Sometimes, positives come out of negatives.

        I’m afraid I’m not too good right now. I’ve been going through some incredibly tough times lately, which is evident in my writing. I’ve been writing a lot of rather dark poetry recently. I find it’s the only way I can express my truth and what’s truly in my heart and soul. I hope these feelings will pass in time. Sending you hugs, Ellie Xx πŸ€—πŸ’—

      3. Hi Ahni. Thank you so much for offering to keep in touch via Messenger. I’m not on FB these days. I do have an account but FB won’t let me log into it anymore. As I don’t really use it, I haven’t done anything about contacting them to try to reinstate it. I’ll get in touch with them in the next few days and ask what they can do.

        Thank you for being here for me. I can’t tell you how much that means to me. The only way I can think of to stay in touch is by email. If you wanted to reach me there, my email address is I will always reply to you promptly.

        Thanks for reading my recent posts. You will find them pretty dark lately. I can explain more about what’s happening via email if you’d like to get in touch. It won’t always be like this. I hope not anyway. I’m sorry you’ve had your share of heartache, too. If there’s anything you need to chat about or share, please don’t hesitate to email me. Sending love Xx πŸ’πŸŒ»πŸ’ž


      4. I’m so sorry it took me forever to get back to this!! Let’s please keep in touch and catch up!πŸ’•πŸ™ Mine is !!πŸ€— Big hugs girl. Excited to talk more/support one another. Xx

      5. Don’t worry, Ahni. We all have busy lives and never enough time to get everything done. I would love to keep in touch with you and will email you in the next day or two. Hope that’s okay. Tomorrow, I see if my counsellor will be able to let me join the waiting list for future counselling. You’ll find more info about my situation in my recent blog posts. I’ll be in touch soon, though. Take care Xx πŸ’πŸŒ·πŸ’•


  2. Hi, Ahni, I hope you are well. Just a very brief message to say I haven’t forgotten about emailing you. I have my family staying until tomorrow, so I can’t get anything else done at the moment. My son and my two young grandchildren, 9 and 7, will be here. I’m always pleased to see them, but so tired after they’ve left. I will be in touch as soon as I can. Take care of yourself. Love Ellie Xx πŸ’–πŸŒ·πŸ’


    1. Hey beautiful! I will write back very soon! I’m so sorry. I had a medical scare, and then all the family/holiday stuff as well. You’re amazing and I’ll write back within the next few days. Xoxo

I’m glad you’ve had time with your family over the important days and your holiday. Can’t wait to hear from you again. Thank you for such kind words to me. Hugs Xxx πŸ’–πŸ€—πŸ’
