I wrote this poem a year ago when I was trying to climb out of my sea of misery after a break-up. In this moment of getting back to my poetry roots, I realized that the all too natural reaction to bottle up certain feelings was something that has gotten me into trouble all too many times. I was reminded that even if those feeling aren’t voiced out loud to anyone else, sometimes it’s good to just get them out there for myself. If you can relate, shoot me an email with your story of how you were able to heal from your own pain.
I don’t mourn the loss of you
I mourn the broken possibilities
Of a future dreamed together
I won’t let you tear me down
Into pieces for your garden
Of thorns and recycled lies
You won the battle of getting
What you want, but for getting
What you need, baby I won the war
