Blood Into Ink Writing Prompt Challenge: Cherylene Nicholas

You used your words to break me down

And that turned my smile upside down

Blinded by my love for you

I forgot I had to love myself too

 

I allowed my true self to be locked away

Not knowing that deep down I had some say

Or that one day I would find my way

My way back to my true self,

That special me I hid on a shelf

 

Now that my blood no longer runs cold

And new purpose fills my soul

Not even you could keep me back in this world

As I turn my blood into ink

I look to the future and can’t help but think

 

I have created my own path

Looking back at my life that is a big start

I won’t pretend I am protecting my heart

This time I’m playing it smart
