When I was with You. {Poem}


When I was with you

I was a property owner
Secure in my place
With double income
My existence was stable

Now that I am without you

I am no longer in servitude
My days do not depend on
How your day was, dear
My loneliness is vast
But I am free
Your hands may no longer touch me
Your shrieks may no longer deafen me
My disobedience
Is my own


Love elephant and want to go steady?
