Captivity

Captivity

My voice feels caged.

My thoughts are not my own.

Withdrawn from the world I knew.

Enslaved in a body that is not of me…

says my SOUL

words

words

this time they stayed.

this time they did not fade away as I dried my face

this time I can not forget.

the words you used to strangle me,

are now a part of me

the pained body

the pained body

Every pain I’ve had I’m still holding onto, as if the pain were pleasure.

The familiarity of it must be what feels so good… the one thing that remains constant.

Just as a flower’s life…

       there are relationships that will bloom and there are others that will wither.

Just as the gardener tends her garden…

       there is a time to tend, a time to salvage, and a time to let go.
