to public
to reality
to images
is something remiss?
I am not who I seem.
I am not who I play.
I am a woman.
I am a toy.
I am……
Cradle my head
hold my soul
care for me
while I long for
it all.
weak I am not
giving up my faith
my trust
my everything
to give you control
to allow you in
to let you lead…..
something most do not understand.
I desire
on structure
for I would care not for self
if you did not insist.
I am worthless
unless I am in your eyes.
I am crying
unless I am in your arms.
I am dying
oh please
keep me safe
hold the monsters at bay
while I sleep.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

  1. We have changed style here from the more recent posts. I still like the way this is written. The anger and dark have been put aside for the moment. Without, I hope, causing embarrassment this one is saying ‘I am a woman, I have desires and needs to be met’. If that interpretation is correct then this is a lovely expression 🙂 🙂
