Cold Eyes Of Injustice - Poem by CarolAnne Spalding

I'm impressed with the ease by which
you could sit back and idly observe,
while I was degraded and demeaned
by he who attempted to create the illusion
of superiority

His antagonistic approach?

Clearly and purposely personal,
far beyond the realm of necessity,
complete with snide comments
and a mocking smirk

I may have stumbled, wavered
and lost balance...
...even questioned my value
as a woman

...But I did not crumble

You may have shattered my heart,
my dreams, my love...

...But I still held my head high
and spoke my truth

You may have clarified doubts
I had not only that love beats
for me within your cold heart...

...But that there is even a heart in
in your chest that beats

In the end....

...You never saw the light of day
for many a day and more

...And THAT
was almost worth
all the destruction and damage done...
