Me Myself & I

fairy tales
not real
prince charming
dance across screens
leap across dreams
seems to land in everyone else’s lap
while I
watch from sidelines
watch behind fences
stand behind drawbridge
drawn tall
watching world in love
not seeing
not wanting
not needing
that sickening stuff.
can do it all
need no one to hold my hand
beheld to none
allowed to live my life
as I wish it to run.
No one sees me late at night
reflected in deep moonlight
where it all went wrong…..
how is no mystery
men who abused
who broke
sense of self
sense of worth
whilst laughing with delight
at tortures played 
upon tender flesh.
Stand tall I will.
Stand alone I shall.
For time
has proven 
again and again
that I am the only one
I can believe in.

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
