I saw you as the boss
Relished every word you said
Always right, while I was always wrong
Consumed by you, I believed you
Constantly walked on my toes
For fear of hurting you
For fear of never being good enough
The weight I carried was never meant for me
The hurts, the silence, kept breaking me
You constantly saw through me
Constantly needing you to help me
I needed you to help me breathe
I won’t be down anymore
I won’t be scared anymore
I won’t hide under your skin no more
I won’t let you choke me anymore
Am doing me now
So glad I dodged the bullet
Am not where I want to be but I definitely ain’t going back down
I don’t need you to breathe
I can do that myself now
Am breathing again

‘your loss’ , love that.
Thank you dear for dropping by. Am glad you love it. Have a great day.
Terrific poetic statement of strength regained! Very well done. Not only the message is pertinent but I also like the fact that you kept the poem gender free! Very good! I think many people might be surprised to know that many men find themselves in stifling relationships. This poem gives them a voice.
Excellent. Thanks for posting!
Yes it does. Sometimes the same way women feel choked up and frustrated in relationships, men also feel same. Thank you Paul for sharing with us. Always a pleasure to have you around.
Beautiful. I love it!!
