Poetic Inspiration

I follow poets, writers and other creatives on social media and every now and again they'll post something that inspires a new poem. Tonight it was Marlon McGowan. Twice this week he has posted some fire on Facebook that inspired new hotness from me. Therapeutic pieces I might add. This one is called "Thank You"... Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Thank You

I appreciate your sincerity,
honesty and truth.
It is refreshing
after all I've been through.
I've been lied to, cheated on
accused of infidelity
and swung on
but through it all I remained true...
Until in my broken state, I gave up on who I thought I loved.
I know you are not him.
That is for sure.
But my heart is still hurt -
self-trust still unsure.
My judgement of character led me astray
now my self preservation
wants to keep me super safe.
It will take some time
for me to trust again
But understand I'm not punishing you
because of him.
I just need to rebuild me,
To remold me into the beauty I once was
to regain the ability
to enjoy love beautifully
without looking over my shoulder...
