Wild One

Wild One

I used to know her well

The one who

let too many

slip into her

She loved it all

Pretended not to

hated herself


But she was



first times

last times

“just once more” times

Until I was sick

Of her

She wasn’t

Taking ME


I silenced her

And buried her

Under the house

Good riddance

Who am I

Without her



Didn’t know I

missed her

I’m taking my

shovel and

heading downstairs

to find


Wrap myself up

In her

And live there

Or perhaps

Die there

    Wow, Leslee.

    I’m not a huge fan of poetry, but every once in a while, a poem really touches me and this one really did. Great job.

    Is it a new one or an old one?

      Thanks Renee! This is a new poem. I wrote it in Feb. 09.

    Wow, Leslee. What a fantastic poem. Remember to love every part of who you are now and who you were. Everything we go through is something grow from.

    Love you,
