Questions

Questions

What is missing inside of me
that refuses to believe
I am worth more?
 
That this treatment
I have received
is acceptable?
 
Instead of being taken
to the top of the mountain
I was left to rot in a ditch
 
Declarations of love
Duplicitous, dishonorable
yet believable
 
Now I am a warrior
fighting for her life
with amputated limbs
 
My heart in need of healing
Doubting and doubtful
Scarred with cynicism
 
Why do I fear abandonment
by someone capable
of delivering cruelty?

    I think you really need to answer this question……?
    “Why do I fear abandonment
    by someone capable
    of delivering cruelty?”
