The Dalema

Finding The Woman I'm Meant To Be



Put The Knife Down

Our deepest wounds
cannot be seen
cannot be heard
or identified –

Our deepest wounds
cannot be found
cannot be stitched
hidden with lies.

Our deepest wounds
beyond our smiles
beyond the tears
behind our eyes –

Our deepest wounds
have no scars
are hidden behind
no reason why.

Our deepest wounds
are poked and prodded
smothered with ‘I’m fine’
and most of the time –

Our deepest wounds
don’t get to heal
don’t get to mend
They’re self-inflicted.

The Deepest Of Betrayal

And I don’t think I can forgive you for that –
For allowing me to love you and not loving me back.

“I love you,” she said to her reflection. Lying to her herself the same way the men in her life had for years.
