He’ll be Dammed

by lynnkennison

His voice

lingers

long after

he leaves her

Follows her

from one minute

to the next

Reminding her

she is a prisoner

inside her own head

She can’t make him

leave

no matter

how hard she tries

She doesn’t

have a say

about what

goes on

in her mind

 

Control

isn’t the issue

but sanity is

She desires

good sense

and understanding

not to listen

and resist

 

She’s afraid of

what might become

of her

She feels hopeless

and lost

She wishes

to grow strength

and make

the madness

stop

For once

she wants to

occupy high

moral ground

and

seeks out a dam

to obstruct

forbidden thoughts
