No More

Like a cyclone

Words open up my world.

Allowing me to give insight, to my inner plight.

Presumably guilty of passion. Lust isn’t my fashion.

Nor is Love.

A hardened heart. Calloused and scarred.

Complicated and hard.

Barriers built to protect from a love not had,


Self-love a gift.

Hell, I wouldn’t know, the shoe didn’t fit.


Daddy’s girl, I never was.

Temperament and face like his.

No-nonsense, strictly biz.

Ingrained inadequate,

before starting, give up and quit.

Emotional baggage dragging me around.

Hands tied and bound.

No peep, no sound.

That is until I found my crown,

placed sideways upon my head.

To be seen and not heard,

a great tragedy for some.

My story is sure to help one.

Days of poisoning myself are past,

learning of a love that lasts.

My confidence once shattered

from one that no longer matter.

Imprisoned no more,

myself I adore.
