I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.


Everyday that passed

Slowly rotted away

Life is an endless wonder

My heart





Among all the others

This is the death of the old me

Shedding my limbs away

I'm not the dead insect

That you made me out to be

I will not roll around with you

Among the other maggots


You tried to kill me

Beat me down

My spirit was too strong

To your dismay

You can try and scream

Haunt like you always did

I will not come back to you

This time

It's time for you to

Go away

That was in the past

A long time ago

My heart for you has

Blown away

Loved you

I wish I never did

Now it's time for you to

Rot and decay

      WOW powerful words. But I agree if they try to destroy us we must rise up out of the ashes and go on our way head held high. Actually your poem wanted to make me tear the subject of it from limb to limb. Very expressive.

      Caroline, I hope you have freed yourself from anyone who causes you pain. I know the feeling, believe me I've been there. Tomorrow is a new day, grab it and be happy..Hugs my friend..

      This sounds like words that might come from a woman who has been a victim of abuse in her relationship...If it is based on personal experience I pray that you are now living in safety and serenity.

      Hi Caroline.

      Hopefully this is just a poem and if not then I can only say you've written a very strong poem. Live up to what you feel and stand by your words.

      There is someone out there that is the right person for you. Sometimes it just takes a little longer to find them.

      Take care and have a good week.

      LOL Ghaelach
