Save me

Strangers all around her listen
her words are sure to lift.
At a distance
She believes so strongly in spreading love.
But the crippling stains of childhood
She chooses to wear
Leaves her Frozen for decades
With so many dreams inside
Self sabotage
It’s always the Loudest voice within
Ahead there’s a life wrath she could seek
But she won’t answer her phone for a week
Holding tight to the memories of those who hurt her.
she says
“Tomorrow will be different
She will set herself free
Repeated insanity plays out inside the mind
Be kind

    Your poem touches a part of me that understands the need to express our child self and the suffering that child within endured.
