Word of the Day Challenge #91-Untitled Poem

Badgered
promised
worn down
told
you were enough
you were the one
I had been waiting for
the one
who would hurt me no more.
Prophesied
spells cast
love runes scratched
fate waited
whispers across the seas
I knew
I could feel
you coming for me.
Bow before
on my knees
supplication
eyes adore.
I see you
really see you
beneath
bluster
contained rage
desire
want
a place to lay
weary head
tired body.
Daddy’s babygirl
my gift to you
spurned
repudiated
tears falling
pain crawling
trust gone…..
I have been left
alone
bereft
lowly creature
it is not I
who fucked up.

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. Sounds like there is some sorrow. People are cruel to one another and for some it hits and stays, for others it rolls off their backs like water on a duck’s feathers. Things stick in my mind and stay and you are right to acknowledge your own innocence in the mess. But remember one thing…knowing you, yourself, have done good and can live with your actions means a whole lot more in the long run!
