The Change Between Us

A poem

How you loved me once
yet you knew nothing of love
the handfasting, cleaving

For our child, I had to eject you
breaking my heart to protect
now no one loves me to the end

You bully me still, yet I care
no thanks for needs met
ego is still your inner enemy

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.
