Speak your Peace and Release

Was it sex 
Was it love 
Was it security 
Why are you still holding on to any of it 
It was toxic and destroyed 
It was fire in your heart and mind 
Burned up all the places you kept sacred 
And gave him a place to reside 
A heart to pump his blood into yours 
And a skin to bury himself in 
Anxiety is not passion 
And stupidity is not courage 
Not here, dear girl, not here 
Release it and live 
Truly live free
