Ire’s Blade

You want to know
am I ok?
You broke my heart
left me bleeding
a torn wreck
on the roadside.
Crawled home I did
a ghoul
face smeared with snot
vision blurred by tears
scared the children
who ran screaming
for their parents.
You did this to me.
You tore out my heart.
You destroyed me…..
you destroyed my life…..
you destroyed the essence of me
for that
there can be no forgiveness.
Rage.
Black.
Boiling…..
erupting from within…..
I want to pummel
I want to break
I want to tear at you
I want you to weep.
I want you to know
how all of this feels.
A mere blip
a wrinkle
at a moment in time you needed
a creature
a woman
so much stronger
but willing to submit to you.
Daggers slip
cracks appear
no longer am I a wife
no longer am I a lover
no longer will you look at me.
Sit I will
upon the ledge dusted with sunset golds
letting the light dim
no longer am I…..

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.

      1. I think I needed to vent and say my piece which I did. And I actually told him I was upset and hurt when he said he did not want to do either to me. This is first time ever that I owned my feelings and validated them. That was empowering and dumbass me did not even realize what I had done until I started writing the words. Wow go me! 🤓🤓🤓
