Thieves of the Night

Christmas morning, they broke into my home.

Thieves of the night,

Cowards to the light.

Robbed me of almost everything,

Except the last bit of hope and faith in humanity.

The only bit you left for me to hold on to.

I am not sure what is worse.

Thieves of the night,

Or thieves of the heart.

  1. Wow. that is so sad. i think thieves of the heart are far worse.

  2. Hard to believe people are so cold to rob you on christmas. That really sucks. But, I agree that the heart is harder to mend. Hopefully you have support..for both.

  3. Easy to replace things.

    It’s a lot harder to replace a loss felt in the heart.

    Breaking, however, may sometimes provide an “opening.”
