Flight or Fight
He watched me intently
As an eagle watches prey
He kept me close to him,
Frightened I may stray.
I checked his mobile constantly
Analysing ghostly texts
I took all his adulation
Blew it completely out of context!
He dreamed of church bells ringing
His bride floating down an aisle
Virgin clothed choristers singing
Him taking his prize, proving he was virile !
I screamed at night
I needed love
I needed to take flight
Not to be trapped in a cage like a dove
I ran and flew
I needed to find me
Before I could find you ...
