your words wrapping around me in a song
transforming me, changing me, spinning me
into a goddess, radiant, beautiful, beaming
a unicorn, delicate, special, and cherished
each word was a promise of love eternal
I was to loved and be loved forever.
Then I heard the words you spoke of
knowing me, hating me, shaming me,
just a human, flawed, fragile, sinning
a mare, abused, tired, and neglected
feeding the worms inside my belly
with love that never nourishes me.
I wait for you to change once again
hoping you, wishing you, needing you,
knowing you were under some horrible spell
and time, perhaps, could fix you
changing the words you spoke of
from distaste and disgust to love.
