Erasing Blurred Lines


Sometimes I halt in silence

Reflect on who I am

How far I’ve come

Mindful I’ve attained

A space I could be satisfied

One I could call my own

Separate from the ties that bind

Blurred lines rarely satisfied

What does she want from me

Unclear fringe I cannot see

What toll I pay when

I disregard her whims

Coming close     then falling fast

I think she does not want me to succeed

Only God can fill her need

I no longer care to sing the song

I’ve sung throughout the years

I recall our ups and downs

Minding every word I said

Did not matter what it was      I had erred

Her disdain for me reverberates

Sifting through my tears

I cut through heartache      accepting peace         

Not reconciliation
