There's a Pounding in My Mind

Posted by FloweringRose , 25 August 2011 · 30 views

(Poem written by me)

There's a pounding in my mind
That awakes at every morn
What did you expect to find?
From a body used and worn
He's long hung me out to drown
The waters growing near
Funny you see my frown
And still think that hope lives here.

Honey it was never my time,
Never my life, never my voice, never my cries.
Darling, I'm going to be fine.
I'm used to submerging in lies.

There's a shatter in my bones
That screams out every night
I'm used to being alone
Under men's eyes set to light
What did you think you could do?
Save a martyr from being priestess?
If you'd know what was best for you
You'd leave me to cry in my own mess

For honey it was never my time.
Never my life, never my voice, never my cries.
Darling I'm going to be fine!
I'm used to suffering under their lies.

My eyes are open wide
But they've never seen the way
The web is much too fine
Their power hard to sway
And here you are as hero,
Trying to show me the sun,
But you don't seem to know
That light and dark are one...

For honey it was never my time.
Never my life, never my voice, never my cries.
Darling I'm going to be fine,
My life was made to be soaked in lies.
