Poetry

No Longer

no longer will i let you
control what I say
no longer will i let you
censor me in any way
no longer will i allow you
to drown out my voice
no longer will i allow you
to take away any choice
no longer will i permit you
to bring me to tears
no longer will i permit you
to trigger my fears
no longer will i let you
weave lies I believe
no longer will i let you
tell stories to deceive
no longer will i allow you
to bring me down
no longer will i allow you
to make me frown
no longer will i permit you
to take space in my head
no longer will i permit you
to fill me with dread

you are but nothing
a bruised ego, perhaps
i am a strong woman
i will not collapse
