I needed a pillow under my head

to support me

Not to cover my face

smothering me

Can't you see 

that's what you did to me?


I did not run to be mean

or control you

I ran because I could not breath...


But I needed a pillow

so I kept coming back

Hoping you would learn

to be by my side

Equal beings

neither better or worse

Existing to support each other

Like the pillow under my head...

Lovely Lynn. Straight from your heart I can tell.
Your pillow suddenly takes on new meaning.
A breath of fresh air. x

you can lead a horse to water
but you can't make him drink.
