Toxic

You deserve much better,
make no mistake.
Quiet your tongue
so his world does not shake
.

He thinks he rules the world,
pathetic fool,
hides behind you,
while pretending to rule
.

A love forced to abide,
emotional hinge.
Insecure boy,
actions make you cringe
.

Longed for a prince charming,
received a toad,
untie your hands,
embrace the open road
.

You sure deserve better,
open your eyes,
forbidden fruit,
has glued you to his side
.

One day you will wake up,
and finally see,
love you once gave,
served to turn your own key
.

You deserve so much more,
feel love within,
embrace your worth
,
experience more wins.

Allow your reflection
to expose your soul,
drive intentions,
regain your own control
.

Contrary

The one meant to love me,
had hate for me too.
Swaying what I see,

controlling my views.

Have you ever heard words,
that felt like a punch?


The energy sprayed,
all covered with blades,

cutting through my heart,
splitting me apart,
shooting like a gun,
leaves me feeling stunned.


Bruise into my mind,

biting deep inside,
chewing at my pride
,
actions undefined,
a fingerless touch
,
delivers the punch.

Then hold me so sweet,
offer many treats,
sweep me off my feet,
I flow like the breeze
.

Have you ever heard words
meant to feel like love?


The words I now hear,
erase all my fears.

all sent from above,
fly in like a dove,
they flutter inside,
bring in butterflies.


They give me a hug,
that fits like a glove,
then sing in my ears,
my eyes fill with tears,
my hopes start to fly,
reaching past the sky.

I land on both feet,
words fall on their knees,
seeking no amends,
knowing this now ends
.

The knots all untie,
I say my good byes
.
