The Other Side Of Me (Sonnet)

You hoped to own my darkness, not my light:  
You fucked that side of me free from sunshine;  
I know that, in your shadow, I could write  
Unmitigated crap: contexts declined  
To set me free; for liberty contrived  
To show softness that's strong: it is, in form,  
Invisible and feminine; it strived  
To weave my world together, once the storm  
Of your oppression died: you'd so deceive  
My heart, it fractured quite intractably;
I could barely withstand you or relieve  
Your ownership by our intimacy;
But somehow I survived and now ignite
My words by fucking freely in the light...
