One Day - Poem by Connie Ducksworth
The storm is slowly raging, the waves are ten feet high,
I'm trying to figure out, how I'll make it through the night.
You start to ask me questions of nothing I know about,
Convinced you know the truth, beyond the shadow of a doubt.
I've given you all the love I could, even up til now,
Accusations thrown at me, bringing me totally down.
How can you say you love me, and never hear what I say?
Only disrespect you've shown me, I feel it day to day.
My life is filled with downpours, from the tears I cry at night,
And lately it just seems that you look for reasons to fight.
My heart feels so shattered, becoming so hard to repair,
You wonder why I turn from you, the pains too much to bear.
I feel like such a prisoner, not knowing where to run,
Chained like an animal, never cut loose to have some fun.
You're bound by so much jealousy, saying you'll never let me go,
If I can't have you, no one can, you always tell me so.
One day, I'll break these chains that bind me day and night,
And I know somewhere out there; I'll find my Mr. Right.
Never to be a prisoner again, as I was with you,
Starting my life all over again, is what I look forward to!
One day! !
