the fates have bidden

alone i wept in the dark                  
my screams died                  
in guilt's choking embrace                  
no one heard                  
or ever peaked in                  
on the little girl lost                  
I was hiding within                  
she trembled                  
& shrank away                  
from the voices                  
that pointed & laughed                  
telling her she was of no use                  
& just no damned good                  
she wore wickedness                  
as a barricade                  
for any foolish enough to come in                  
to frighten anyone                  
who came close enough                  
to her true self she hid                  
with a pain she held tight                
she walked through everyday                  
aching & crying                  
she felt herself fade                  
then with a mirror                  
you shone light                  
on what i thought was well hidden                  
& with your words                  
uttered come out                  
into my love you are bidden                  
with a fierce braveness                  
your poetry sang to me                  
untied my binds                  
& gently opened my eyes          
so I might see                 
a new dawn                  
where i too                  
can run free      
in the sanctuary                  
that the fates      
have so wonderfully gifted me
