i love my everything that you disdain

that scares you, i can tell

your contempt for me is daylight plain


words slide silk-like inside my brain

ur mad cuz u cant spel

i love my everything that you disdain


mood shifts crazy when i bra-refrain

(i see you glaring at my nipple)

your contempt for me is daylight plain


grumpy i never took your name?

i prefer M’s ocean swells

i love my everything that you disdain


hey man, we judge where we feel shame

you’re clearly hurting and unwell

your contempt for me is daylight plain


is that why you kept his mother in a cage?

well he loves me free as hell

your contempt for me is daylight plain

i love my everything that you disdain

    i form pakistan where are you form

  • As well you should, Morgana. Well declared. (And yeah, I appreciate getting to discover that my sense of what your subtitle looks like wasn't just because that's the kind of mind I have, lol.)

    I adore this! Especially the part where your hubby is a freaking badass for breaking a cycle that he so easily could have fallen prey to. So, even though I know this piece wasn’t about him (and I loved every ounce of the rest of it) I giving him a standing ovation for loving you “free as hell”! 💫✨

    The second part! Love it. Congrats on your top story!

    Congratulations on top story of the week . Well deserved

  • Kalina Bethany5 months ago

    I know exactly what this feeling is - oh, how sad you must be to break down your person because she's everything you wish you could be... Cheers to the Top Story!

  • Donna Fox (HKB)5 months ago

    Love this Morgana! The subtitle was very clever! Great work and congrats on Top Story!

    Stay in your power, young woman! Your poem is breathtaking.

  • Hannah Moore5 months ago

    I love the power in this, the defiance.

  • Rachel Deeming5 months ago

    I read this over and over. I didn't get the sense of it at first but I think I'm there now. I quite like the fact I didn't get it straight off because like a riddle, I've had an "Eureka!" moment and I don't get many of those. And I might be wrong about it but that's what's great about poetry - its meaning has slotted nicely into my brain under the "I understand" heading and I like the feeling that's given me. But it might not match what you meant. I love the refrain, "I love my everything that you disdain." Yep. Long may it continue.

    Blimey...back to say congrats on another fine Top Story, Ms Miller. Wanted to also say that the subtitle and the image along with that title make this stand out so much.

  • Davina Zinn McKee5 months ago

    Now that’s one hell of a villanelle. I love the title and the subtitle, and the sass. If I marry, I too will keep my name and identity—and autonomy. I love that for you. I’m somewhere between a ‘bra burning’ feminist and a traditionalist, so this spoke to me. 💗

  • Caroline Jane5 months ago

    Reads like a "fuck you" mantra. Love it! Nice to read you here again! (That sounds weird... was not meant to be 🤣)

  • Paul Stewart5 months ago

    Boom! Damn, Morgana! Long time no read anything by you and what a way to publish something for the first time in ages! Loved this take on the challenge. All fire and fury and not giving two effs! Well done!
