Susan Rippe

My mind topples, spinning out of control,

The words come abruptly,

So abrupt...

The emotions I held inside for all these years,

The feelings I did not show,

I can not stop the flow of the pain.

For these are things you did not know.

The words I do not hear,

Words pouring out of me,

Coming from deep within,

Flowing through time and space,

They are sure to leave a bitter taste.

Words so harsh, it will cut like a knife,

Ripping through your heart,

Words I can not undo,

Words that should not be,

Through the many years,

Building a wall of tears,

You were too’ blind to see.

Too’ many tears,

Too’ many for one to bear,

You held the power when you broke me,

When you played a game,

You never played fair.

Now I am strong,

My words cut deeper than any abuse,

Here I stand; ME.

it is I that I introduce.

For now you stand alone,

Just you and my words,

I’m leaving.

I do not love you,
