Adopted Life

They say not to look back,
But it was all a mistake.
It should never have happened,
it happened that way.
My whole life there were things I lack,
No place, none of my people.
No mother, no father. Might I have had siblings, a family?
No roots to give me ground.

What I became due to having been captive, by the childless. and what i found, an autocratic system of a narcissistic society.
What has become of me?

Nothing, nothing of worth
What if otherwise was my birth?
Out of my birthgiver, a mother of my own.
And a younger sister, a life no longer alone.
Learned to sing, I might have been a star.
There’s no telling in this other life how far.

I would have gone, where I wanted to go.
Never having chosen the safe and insoltated.
Taking risks we must take, personal power consolidated.
I could have been a leader, instead
Always in second place;
In home, in the world, and in my heart.
It’s just a start,
In this Adopted Life.

Is There Nothing More?

Dinner is on the wall Children crying, infant screaming Fear freezes her when he calls Between them there is silence peeling Its the way they only know Its how love they struggle to show He knows nothing more She can’t bear the blood and sores She understands she must flea But how else can she Be? _______________ Copyright © 2020 HeardWords America

His Love for Her

Don't leave me here!  Don't you leave me here this way!  What will all my friends say? Who was it that carried me on the bier? Well, will you pray for me? Or can't you wait to see another man, if only you can?  Life with you was never,  the kind I wanted.  You called me "friend" That was after you put an end to our coupling. That was after you had my ring  cut off your finger. I can hear you singing after that. You had your own definition for being a swinger. A woman, free and unattached. Since then we've never been intimate. No matter the many times I had to wait. You would love me  Only by cleaning and laundrying for me. Still you'd never give me a bath. We had a life together you never let last. Don't leave me here!  Don't you leave me here this way!  What will all my friends say?     "She buried him, with his love for her.      She's not so demur."  _________ copyright ©️ 2023 SDKilmer, LLC All Rights Reserved www SDKi

Colours of My Life

Once my life was as bright as the golden sun. During those days, I thought you and I were one. You made me very blue when you told me to leave you. Eventually I became use to it. Until years later, I thought I might have a chance. We became good friends, again. Better than before. I just couldn't leap over your new boundaries that kept us as only friends, nothing more. You possessed a strange manner In relation to your "ex's". Remaining friends with them with whom you arrived at an end? What man can have a former lover as a friend? Suddenly they were wandering around. Fixing things or seeking to be fixed! How does an "ex" trust another "ex"? What man can have a former lover as a friend? That night I must have glowed as light green was my apprehension, fear and terror to loss of you whom apparently were not mine to possess. Turning deep green, my jealousy &  envy; that ran blood red in my annoyance unto rage. Days gone past when Deep
