A Poem Written by Vivian Ennis 03/02/1999

I don’t miss you
I miss me
I need my heart
now to be free

My pain does not
come from you
I am the one
who feels this blue

When I think of you
Oh how I loved your smile
but I was not thinking of me
all the while

I was like a free
flying dove
that had been crushed
by a codependents love

Then I became
so ill inside
No longer could I find
my inner self or pride

But as I took
one step back
I realized being with you
was really my lack

I then knew
from here on out
to love myself first
without any doubt
