Words to the Sociopath
With your boyish charm you stole my heart,
took my breath, enchanted my mind.
Then the mask fell leaving me bewildered.
The cruel words that spewed from lips I once cherished were meant to crush my spirit.
My heart now has surfaced from the black depths.
Layers of your negativity peeled from my heart.
I breathe freedom.
I breathe peace.
I wake each morning to the power within myself to live my life beautiful.
Destroy my esteem you didn’t.
I am stronger than before.
I am beautiful.
I am FREE.
