Wicked Ways

Originally posted on 12/19/2012 and I just came across it and it reminds me why I wrote it. It is partially about my life and the hyper-sexuality caused by my bipolar disorder.

Wicked Ways

She was a wicked woman,
careless in her ways.

Gave a care for no one,
slept away her days.

At night she met the men,
different one each night.

One night she was beat up,
indifferent to her plight.

Obsessed with men, any man
She gave no thought to her soul.

Her friends finally intervened,
They tried to make her whole.

She ignored their advice,
and shut them all out.

Then one day she started
to feel some doubt.

She started to fear the future,
looked for ways to feel.

She stopped seeing the men,
and finally began to heal.


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

  1. I love the structure and I’m a sucker for rhyme. And of course the content makes you feel hopeful for her by the end.

    This is string and poignant.

    I guess you have to hit bottom before you can climb back out. I hope she does heal!
