No Control
by Laurie Kolp

The bitter taste comes over me
like a shadow in the sun,
an undeniable hatred
not to be undone.

Coffee and tobacco breath
lingers in my head,
memories of your abuse
an all-consuming dread.

Light green eyes cannot hide
the darkness of your soul,
how you held me prisoner
in evil’s shallow hole.

While this song reminds me
of a time way back when,
our young innocent love
soon became controlling sin.
