no fairy tales (my issues)

i wasn’t raised on fairy tales i never thought the prince was coming i did not look or wait for him to march in on his horse no matter the color i grew up knowing i had to save myself i had no visions of royal kisses in the moonlight on a castle’s balcony i took care of myself i had no dreams of being taken care of or fitting like a hand and glove i saw the men come i saw the men go no words or show just go they were here today and gone tomorrow leaving behind sorrow tears and shame but they were never blamed it was up to the women to carry on make everything work smiling instead of cussing laughing to keep from crying all the while dying for some love Advertisements

Love in the Secret Place

love dwells in the secret place resting my tired soul yielding my mind to your control unspeakable joy is complete I’m made whole safety is the fortress that lets me shed my tears peace is the refuge to help me face my fears comfort dwells in the secret place while the world swells with darkness It is here I find light strength dwells in the secret place all wounds are mended with the power to endure as I bear my soul no thing can touch me I dwell in the secret place with you
