I’m Mine: Pictures and Poems

ImMinedark, sunless winter days

love for self

has gone away

cold, hard truth

I can’t love anyone well

until

the well of me

sit still

woman, and be

let yourself sink into the infinite

of your humanity

wicked push, wicked pull

within, without

make it full

fill ‘er up with titles and have done’s

when all I need to be is the one

not yours

not his

not hers

not theirs

from love springs love

and who do I belong to

what is my crime

you don’t own me

yeah, world I’m mine

-Melissa Kircher

Prints and other fun art things with I’m Mine can be found in my Society6 store: I’m Mine Print
