this is a little poem I wrote years ago feeling trapped and looking for change but not knowing how to make changes in the positive

Words from your lips
cut deep within, rushing
through my veins like broken glass
feeling pain again and again and again
I cannot stop
the bleeding
Looking into your familiar face
you have become a stranger
sadness overcomes me
like a tangling fishnet
holding me underwater
the change was in me
casting off a former shell of myself
growing away from you
steppiing over splintered glass
I walk down the aisle
the bride of experience and courage

leaving maiden dreams behind

the honeymoon is over.
