Let My Body Rive - Poem by Ciara Owens

i cant believe i let it happen again,
consumed by all i thought was good.
darkness enveloped my greatest desires
im all alone in this padded cell crying
tearing at my throat.
what else can i do to escape this emotional jail?
i cant run into the walls and let my arms flail.
i cant believe i put hope in this again,
i cant believe i locked myself up in this dream.
most of all i cant believe i believed in him again.
especially after what hes done to me.
i feel so misused
so misunderstood.
im nothing but a burden on those around me,
driving them slowly to insanity.
just leave me alone to die,
and once again let my body rive!
