A New Schnikism: (Poetry Series) More

I used to know who I am.

I used to know what love was.

I used to know my heart’s desire.

I used to know the depths of my strength.

And then I found some more.

I once had the strongest sense of self.

I once had love and dreams fulfilled.

I once never questioned the truth of love.

I once stood tall above it all.

And then I found some more.

But now, I’m a hollow core.

But now, my heart is very sore.

But now, I have been reduced to someone’s whore.

But now, I have broken wings that no longer soar.

But now, I have a waning desire for any more.

But now, I have a voice that does not roar.

And then this ship of life ran ashore.

I saw truth in the above, unflinching and unquestioning.

What comes next are the lessons you made me learn.
