Miss Hyde

Grey desolation
bleeds through the colors
stalking me
daring me to run
so it may hunt me.
Hurling through the abyss
I hear mocking laughter
screaming in my ears.
I shriek.
Rip at my hair.
Cover my ears.
Shed tears of sorrow
of hopelessness
of despair.
When did I become so lost?
When did my world go from sun
from flowers
from moonlight dinners
to this?
It hurt.
I sit alone
at a table for two
a single glass of wine.
I sip it slowly
eyes scanning
until I find you…..
my love.
I gave you everything.
He stole from you.
I put aside my hopes
my dreams.
He took your future.
I float in a fog
there is no more worth living
he no longer loves me
he no longer cares.
He never did.
It was all a game.
You lost.
He stole your everything.
Voices
grim
screeching with righteousness.
I grip my head
stronger then they am I.
Stumbling back
I run and hide.

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
