Drowning – Poem of the Month – April 2019

Drowning


Like a thief in the night
Stealing my fragility
My heart still weak
in its recovery
Destroying my stability
 
Empty promises
and broken dreams
Snatching my soul
Silently unravelling
my life at the seams
 
Kindness disguised
A wolf in sheep’s clothes 
Preying on vulnerability
Inserting yourself into my life
Collecting my woes
 
I have become your possession
With no voice of my own
You manipulate my actions
and my every thought 
All I want is to stand alone
 
Release me, I beg
From this obsessive control
Suffocating in your oppression
I can no longer breathe
Slowly drowning in this black hole

    Don’t let anyone hold you back. You’ve got this.

      Thank you. Your words are very kind. Fortunately this is not my story but there are many out there who struggle in this type of codependent relationship. I write for them. Best wishes.

    Inserting yourself into my life
    Collecting my woes
