3WW-for josephine

sky blue eyes
always looking
always searching

one day she will see him for what he is
one day she will see me for what I am

will she like me?

He rules her universe now with his pewter fist
always remolding and retelling
stories
lies
viscous noises of genuine dislike

he serves her plates full of pity me
he tells me I threw her away
you never cared for her
you don't love her

say it enough and it might be true

But I do
I do to him to too
until I do did no more

I will avenge her years with him
I will teach her to fly
someday
to rise above his ramble
to see the nuggets of goodness
to know real love when it touches you

Like a phoenix she will burn and become
One day

soon?

    I love the poetry here:
    'But I do
    I do to him to too
    until I do did no more'.
