I should have known the first time my cheek slammed against your hand
You were a man transformed to a beast...
You lost your woman; get over it


I should have known the first time my cheek slammed against your hand
You were a man transformed to a beast
Slandered with carelessness, you beseeched malice and contempt upon my name
To friends, family, co-workers and strangers
Complete bullshi#
Yes, I am a woman who for a moment in time lost her mind – that is the truth
Prozac, Effexor and Zoloft were my best friend
A legalized crutch to hold one side up
For my momma was dead and I lost contact with God
Bottled up with fury from failure and disappointment
I lost my fortune
Forgotten about freewill and my natural strength from being a woman
Crippled by your tongue and your fist
I allowed myself to go tumbling and fumbling
And an angel took hold and held me until my nerves were calm
Showed me how I had the might to cease the madness in my life
Promised that she would not let me fall
Handcuffed I left you tumbling and fumbling before turning back to my old person
A credit card swipe away from bankruptcy but happy and free from your misery
Found love in the angel who helped me take a peak out of one eye
And I remembered how to pray
You liked the change and so you call me out my name
Tried to guilt me into coming back to your sad and pitiful life
“I knew it!” you yell, as if we were in the tenth grade
“She’s not allowed at our son’s basketball games”
You too must have forgotten about freewill
Who are you to say what can and cannot be in someone else’s private life
Say what you will when you see me
Let the beast come forth and be drop-kicked
With words of wisdom and defense
All because you cannot just let it be
Have to impose your havoc on my life
And you’re the one who couldn’t play nice
Still you point at me quoting scripture
I can understand your embarrassment
So please don’t worry about having to say hello or look in my direction
Because I’ll kindly look away
Just settle down beast man and understand
You lost your woman
Get over it

Life has many ups and downs and at times the maze is difficult to navigate, but it seems you found the path that suits best, well said...

Be always safe,

Too seldom do we see minds clear enough to allow right to prevail.
There is such hope in this.
Thanks for sharing. Wow.
