Wild and Free

by LeslieP5

Wild and Free
You drew me in
to share your sin
of disrespect
and cruel neglect
pecking my brain,
no one came to stop
this evil lover's game.

Behind invisible bars,
the hidden scars
are hard to bear,
as you glare.
Staring me down,
I start to drown
in your frown
while the clown in you
laughs and smiles
as my pain beguiles.

You display your wiles
to keep me there,
in despair,
trapped in your snare,
a lover's lair
that belies
as true love dies.

I post the bail,
break out of jail.
You wail and groan,
now home alone,
beset with regret,
you cannot forget.
You bemoan your fate
but it's too late.

Your verbal abuse,
words too loose,
tied a noose
as you tried to kill
and break my will.
But I survived.
In fact, I thrived.

Now, I celebrate
and keep my date
although belated,
I have waited long,
growing strong,
to meet and greet,
the upbeat,
wild and free,
authentic me.
