I had a bit of a bad day yesterday (depressive thoughts and feelings) and turned to writing as an outlet. The result is this dark poem. The good news is that it lifted my mood to post this, as if the writing of my dark thoughts leave me when I write. I hope it is well received despite the darkness of it.
How Many Times?
How many times did I, let you inside?
Spent life afraid, wanting to hide.
Why did I let you, say those things to me?
Blinded by love, expecting you to see.
How could you take, control of my life?
Forgot who I was, more than just a wife.
Why didn’t I see, that I could simply leave?
Made me think no-one, would want to ever grieve.
How many times did I, let you get inside?
Too late to count now, I’ve already died.
Poem inspired by the daily prompt word Total (as in ‘total number of times…’)
