Love Abandoned

When tomorrow comes so does the rage

the time I spent building

I huddle within myself

trying to come together.

I lost so much time, not being me

but being the mannequin you desired

Smart and cute I cannot maintain the facade

but allow it to fall and shatter.

What made me think I could play?

What made me think that I could endure?

Sick and silly love, that is what it does

turns you from the hero

to the child that snivels on the floor.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
