Loving Again

By: Ciara Rose Dominguez

I wish I could trust him more
Instead of staying wound tight within myself
I fear love like vampires fear sunlight
As if the true strength of it's purity
Is undeserved on my distant heart
On my twisted feelings of hurt, anger and hate

Honestly, I feel like a caged cat
Throwing myself around inescapable bars
I like the night and darkness seems to like me
I crouch, furiously scared
And scratch at your memory

He shouldn't have to live in your shadow
And I want to like the sun
Sweet days in paradise with my baby
Warm days filled with trust, spontanaeity and fun
Not hampered by sideways thoughts of you
Trying to find from you
-Having finally left you,
Some peace.
