The Deal

The Deal

A Poem by Alisha Heistand

So, you miss me again

I know your true yearning:
The attention
The affection

You think I'm still yours.

Newsflash: I belong to no one.

And so comes the power
Of the deal.

Arrange a meeting to give you what you crave
The kisses
The hugs

And what's this you find as your hand brushes my hip?
A scar.
A scar you caused. You never hurt me physically, no
Emotionally you left me battered and helpless.

You ask about your findings
Like you give a Damn

Looks like the deal didn't go as you've planned.

And in my head a war is raging...
A part of me trying to claw it's way out to yell and show the anger and disgust at the person you've become

And yet another part
Quietly begging to stay silent, fearing you'll tell someone

Live in fear or speak my mind?
The choice is clear; I've always been a pipe bomb.

I await the day the deal is closed
I await the moment you find the scar

And so this is the outcome
Of The Deal.

Interesting piece of poetry. You shouldn't let your life be confined by "deals" that constrict you from being happy. You have the power to speak up and defend yourself, you just need to take a stand and use the power that you have. Never feel like you're confined to staying with old habits; always welcome new opportunities and things that truly make you happy. Good poem all in all, though!

Interesting read. Let your voice be heard. Speak up and let your feelings be known. Who needs deals? Just let life happen and you'll be fine. There comes a time where you must close your own deals and move on. All-in-all a good bit of writing. Keep it up and you'll go far. Don't forget; speak up.
