THE HOLD IS BROKEN
ORIGINAL WORK OF LISA MITCHELL
The hold is broken now
A string torn in uneven pieces with tattered and frayed ends,
You'll keep trying to break it .
You just can't let it go.
You’ll try to take that which no longer belongs to you.
That which was given willingly will now fight you.
Your greed and hunger will always give chase to that which no longer wants you.
You were always fascinated with the chase.
Luckily I know my own strength now.
I find you weak and crass: You disgust me.
it has been a long time coming.
That I might one day find my own strength and rise above your cruelty and pain.
You took and took and left me in a puddle on the ground.
Laughing as you walked away.
I live and exist not for you, but for them.
I only exist because they wish it.
My heart lies in theirs and theirs in mine.
The only love that binds me now is to them.
In my heart they will always be.
Safe and out of your reach.
I send them everything I have.
And you are just a bad memory.
You cannot touch me anymore.
I have found freedom from your clenching hands.
So go away and leave me alone.
You thought that you could get to me,
You thought that I could never resist you.
Your charm has turned to poison and it no longer seduces me.
Splendour has found me and is mine.
My glory lies in their memories.
What remains behind cannot be changed.
You are insignificant and no longer have the freedom to mock me.
So walk away and never look back.
I resist you with all that I am.
My future lies ahead and you cannot have anymore of my present.
Kiddo's sending all my love and kisses.
