Sharing poetry and feminist thought

Traveling to the dark corners of my mind

Wishing more and more to leave it all behind

The grip he has on my soul would make me half of one should I tear myself away

How do I leave knowing the turmoil and devastation left in my wake?

The blame and the guilt weighing heavily on my heart every waking moment

A piece of me dies with every hurtful word uttered from his lips

Inevitably becoming the shell of the woman I used to be

Ignoring my need to be desired

Pushing it back down the center of my core

As time escapes, the desire becomes louder than my strength to suppress it

For now, foolishly believing that things will change, as hope slowly fades
