The Apple Core

In this blog, I am proud to present my new poem, The Apple Core!

This poem is close to my heart and I would like to know your thought on it!

(Have you read some of my other poems: The ToothbrushMoonshine?)

I thought you were in love

But maybe not

You told me I made that bit up

You distrusted me

I stood accused

There was probably nothing I could do

To change the outcome

Replay events

You were cruising for an argument

You didn’t see my soul

Nor did you like my vibe

You thought my naked love was something to hide

My emotions didn’t matter

You decided before you knew

I was never going to be the woman good enough for you

You bit me like an apple

Right to the core

And when you consumed my fruit you didn’t want more

I was yesterday

Condemned by my past

You never wanted a tomorrow, a relationship to last

I know I’m not perfect

But I’m not that low

To be told my use has ended, I have to go

I wondered if you saw me

Understood my heart

If you could see the cruelty in your part

I wanted to love

You did not

That’s the truth of the story, you forgot


Do I think Eve got the raw end of the deal in the Garden of Eden? After all of that, probably… After all this time, the apple is still there to remind of us of the original judgements held against Eve in the Garden of Eden.

If someone levies a judgement against you the chances are it is more a reflection of their internal struggle than your actions. Don’t accept their narrative if it robs you of your self-esteem, dignity and reduces you to nothing more than an extension of them.

You are not an object that is there to be cast away. You are an amazing woman who deserves respect in all of her intimate relationships.

And finally, I would like to invite you to join me in the discussion with my club for woman Hayley Quinn Club– the only space where is about getting you, not him!
