The poem(s) are below...



When did I go from being revered as your queen
To being demoted as a fool?
Blatantly disrespected and demeaned
Stepped on like a footstool

When in your eyes did I lose value?
Making you think you can do as you please
Saying whatever comes into your mind
Making me literally FREEZE

For years I let you take my power
Making me feel unloved and unworthy
Taking what once was a beautiful love
And turning it into something dirty

I didn’t even recognize myself
After your years of verbal attacks
No reflection of the woman I once was
Of the woman from several years back 

Who is this shell of a woman?
Fragile, with tears in her eyes
When did I become HER
It’s at this moment, I realize 

Some men know how to love their women
And I sincerely applaud you guys
So take no offense, to hear me vent
To you, this poem doesn’t apply
