We Still Love You
Those are the words, always said
To my heart, so full of dread
After I did something “wrong”
And didn’t feel as if I belong.
These simple words, she claimed true
Stung my heart, hole right through
And left me sad, wondering why
No other choice, I must comply.
Now grown, away from home
Free to think, thoughts my own.
A rising phoenix, I stand tall.
Shedding ashes, I give my all.
Burn away, old bits of mind
Heart beats on, clock of life.
Old dusty hours, sink into dirt.
Bleeding flowers, bloom with hurt.
Garden heart, must plow along
Sowing hope, here seeds belong.
Mercy drained out, to your doom.
Words remain, heart’s empty tomb.
