    i used to be so open
    for years i was so open
    (when i availed myself to be)
    and he always managed to
    manipulate me perfectly
    so as to say he wasn't
    aware of my vulnerability
    all the while using it...
    and sometimes i would leave
    the door cracked and would
    call to him through it
    at times of my grieving
    and he would always come
    probably because i'm beautiful
    and young and my sunshine
    is so sweet and good...
    then i grew up
    got hip to our reality
    and would never put
    my good thang in jeopardy
    because i love myself
    and i love my husband
    so that cracked door is
    closed and locked...
    i never have to see or
    speak to him again
    there's no real reason to
    besides
    all he knows how to do is
    blow on a bruise
    he could never fix my pain
    and now i know
    which leads us to
    the
    end.

    thanks for sharing...

    too many of us tend to look back at what was...instead of looking forward to what could be. keep that door locked, babygurl. your joy and happiness is standing beside you.:)
