My truth. My life.

Just one door



Do I dare to dream what is on the other side?

Escaping you can never be my reality.

It seems easy.

I know things are never as they seem.

You will find me.

You will break me.

Just one door to cross and I will have wings.

The shackles you have firmly placed around me

are unbreakable.

The whips you call words have

bruised me and made me bleed.

Hope building up inside me

as I place my hand on the door.

So proud.

The key turns and you walk in

and flash your killer smile.

The door shuts tighter than before.

    That’s how codependence works.
    But who puts the shackles there?
    One can only break the breakable.


  4. Your words have given you wings, no longer to be shackled or tormented. Brilliant D.

  5. WOW. So very powerful. Sobering, raw, real. That last line is killer.
