Suppress – August 16, 2019

Suppress me,

You don’t want to dress me

With all my wounds.

~~~

One day you’ll find me erased

And wonder why

You never saw me fly.

~~~

Inside a flash,

I learned

To be who you wanted.

I played the game right

Everything stayed the same,

Because I didn’t put up a fight.

~~~

Pulling down bits of myself

Thrown all over, askew.

All you missed out on,

Playing the game for who?

~~~

Picking up the pieces

To what I should have become,

Just beginning to unfold the creases

And everything ceases.

~~~

I see what you wanted now,

Even if unintentionally.

You blindsided me

With all your fake glee.

~~~

My eyes are wide open

To see what they see.

I’m starting to agree,

Most complacently.

~~~

I’ve always held the key

It’s been sitting in the lock, idly.

One twist of my wrist, and

You’ll no longer suppress me.
