Breaking the Cycle- #Poem #Poetry

You gave a request

I read as an ultimatum

You stated you finally want to stop this circle

Finally opening up

And I start to see

That even when I said the contrary

I’d been closed to you

Love for you grows with me

Tears of sorrow for the guilt

Of not being as you are now

Hope that I can let go and trust

That I can just be with you

Leaving paranoia behind me in the dust

Your arms holding us strong

Faith in me, when none for myself

Refusing to let me run anymore

Not swallowing anymore ridiculous lies I tell myself

Stating I am yours

And you are mine

Communication finally flourishing

Under the weight of our pure love

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
