So sit there and drown in self-satisfaction while
denying the truth of your pitiful lies.
Belligerence, breeding contempt for you yet,
your refusal to see leading to your demise.
Do I care? Not at all.
Will I bow to your needs?
Think again foolish one that lesson’s learned well
I shall send you with others who fell to their knees
To dwell with regret in their own private hell.
“But I love you” no longer the words needed to
placate the naïve battered soul that I am
Your trinkets and charms not enough now I see
the beauty and worth that was stolen by man.
So sit there and drown in arrogance while
I wipe that sarcastic smile from your face
For this time it’s my turn to stand up and shine
To bring light to my world and put you in your place.

Maria, this is brilliant and oddly mirrors the emotions I am feeling at the moment, but for differant reasons I suspect. Well Done.
Thanks Natalia..I wrote it a long time ago, strange how certain feelings remain relevant throughout your life ;o)
