Wildness

I felt my thoughts run wild
 Was I really a demon child
 Thoughts tightened my head grew light
 I hoped my expression was on my face right
 
I absorbed your statement surety taking flight
 Your questions growing old
 Your coming across as way to bold
 So this is the child you stole
 
Standing here now I felt guilty as sin
 My emotions had just let little old Peace walk right in
 I was sure that without me the child's future was dim
 So I filled her right up to the rim
 
Without me here she surely would be condemned
 Who would look for me now I live in the brim
 
As I fought the fear
 Of having you here
 It hurt to the bone
 Making her a home
 
So I opened the door
 But her back to where she was before
 Because I love her even more
 I stay here to even the score

    ‡ Wow, After Reading This Profound And Amazing Amid Intrigues Poem, Beautiful Ruth, It Somehow Seems As Though Perhaps A Bit Of Delving Into One's Own Self And Conscience ? But That's The Ofttimes Wonderful Thing About Poetry In This, It Can Present These Abstract Images For The Viewers To Muse Upon And Or Ponder ? I Love It. Powerful This Woman I Myself Seem To Find Here. Don't Ever Stop Writing. Love, Rachel ‡
