Days filled with thoughts of you,
Memories less painful,
shame, more wearable.
The ache in my womb from the destruction
the grief, more bearable.
As time corrodes us,
this story holds less weight.
You hold less weight.
Pressure on lungs is lifting.
Will there always be people who see you in the light I once did?
Tricks and moves
convincing the smartest of fools.
Lies from lips disguised as love.
I know you are here to teach lessons
and self respect,
spotlighting low self esteem.
I wonder, if you’ll ever truly be seen?
Until then I remind myself
of Ted Bundy,
and how even he had a fan club
of other egos wishing to be seen.
