Growing Stronger

Poetry By: ListenToTheWind

personal poem about some feelings of resentment at a guy I dated who cheated on me, intentionally tries to make me jealous, and is always trying to force me into the shadows

how do you always manage to get under my skin

your like a virus raging within

destroying everything, it corrupts most of what it touches

everything it clutches, it tarnishes and taints

this darkness of yours, I wear them like restraints

you got what you were looking for

I am gone

I am no more

so stop treating me like dirt

stop expecting me to look

my heart you may have hurt

but my soul you never took

I'll hold my chin high

when you hug her, I won't look away

from your eyes I won't shy

and my anger, I'll keep at bay

it lurks in my being, just waiting to be released

it anticipates its freeing, but I keep it on a leash

instead my eyes burn like fire

my stomach simmers like coals

you can't deny you're a lier

its written on your soul

your ways have beaten me down

they kept all of who I am chained and staked to the ground

so while you hold her a moment longer

just know that i'm growing stronger
