Begin Again Poem by Sandra Regan


Let it begin again.
This time by myself.
Congratulated for the baby nonexistent.
Surprised but not really.
Confirmation affirmed.
Unhand my belly you fiend.
You took away my blinders.
Made me open my eyes.
Made me stop sucking.
It in.
Let ME begin again.
I know what to do.
Sitting in my closet wanting to burn it all.
He said he was a manipulative bastard.
I should have believe him.
Instead I defended him.
All the while he manipulated me.
I always knew.
I asked for help and was yelled at.
Yes. You are a manipulative bastard.
You were correct.
Begin again.
Start anew. Burn this gut.
Burn those thoughts.
Burn those tears from the start.
Burn the anger.
Burn that manipulative bastard and begin again.
