I couldn't say for certain when
but I would guess it at least four years
since my heart and soul
left you.

the part of me
that needs to be loved
and needs friends that care
and a normal life,
she goes to work
everyday and lives her real life.
and so it is no wonder to me
when you come into my room
in the dark
and my ears hear
that you miss me.

This body that you call your possession,
that you kept from leaving you.
she now comes dutifully home
come five o clock,
and at your house each weekend,
she waits for monday.

how long has it been
you ask,
that I found this bit of insanity?
I call it a victory in the war of survival
and wearing a tarnished medal band,
I can wake each day and find a smile.

just what time was it when I,
tired fighting your strangling control
your ever alive suspicions,
and your anger,
just stopped?

I couldn't say for certain when
but it seems an eternity,

and I miss me too.

ILoveit: That's why I kept wanting my freedom, couldn't settle for less and when I do sometimes think that less is better this little voice reminds me of the difference between 'love' and 'making do' But then I am what you call a persistent little wench..*g* (no need to agree...ooops)

Iloveit, this was so good. You expressed the feeling so well and I could feel the emptiness of your loss.

ILoveit: Sure thing, when do you want to start the "learning to be a wench" lesson and pretty soon after you'll be wanting the "learning how NOT to be a wench" lesson?..ROFL....persistent, aren't I?..*g*
