Being a woman is hard

The moment I stopped being in love with you was the moment I saw who I was 

What I liked about you

Confused little girl looking for her father's love

Looking for male validation without realising it.

But I am a woman- I'm scared, I need strength 

I am weak but I don't want to admit it.

I saw strength in you, I saw a mind that I wanted to learn from, to listen to, to fall deep into.

But after a while I started feeling disgusted just by looking at you

I hate you, I don't see the woman in me like I used to when I was in love with you 

I was fragile but I am not anymore...

I am a woman- I need strength but not all the time

I realised that my femininity is stronger than your masculinity, I am alive and you

You are not.

You were once alive but that was only because of the image I created of you 

in MY mind

You were  once strong because I thought you were

You were the person I was once in love with because I created you

in my dreams..
