That Pain

This is that pain that you can write with That pain you can change lives with The kind of pain to turn a person kind The cruel pain that can make an angel cruel The kind I can barely even see through So much power in this pain It feels more powerful than me Like…

Ghost

A very wise mentorOnce said to me,“A strong woman knowsthat you can love someoneand still let them go.” ILove you.Do you know?I don’t think so.Does it matter, though?Rumors say I ghostedBut this was between us twoWhile it’s true I stopped respondingWe both knew we had gotten toxic Still, feels like I’ll never get over you….

March

Sipping on some kava teaThinking ’bout bad poetry(Isn’t it all badWhen it comes from me?) Just as wellI feel like I’m under that spellThat we callWriter’s block (make it stop) So much bottled upI wish I could spillBut the words are stuck in my chestPainfully held captive by Heart She says,I can’t share todayI just…

Qualities

What if I took all of the men I’ve dated Lined them up in my mind And blocked out every single thought That was anything but kind? I love how R brings me along when he travels And lets me be alone in foreign cities And all the places we go when we meet back…

Rejection

He sees me, and he turns away. We’ve both got a game to play We’re both trying to pretend That we both wanted it to end. Neither one of us dare be caught Out and about without looking hot Trying to act cool, but I’m not And it takes everything that I’ve got To pretend…

Missed Connection

All the Fcukbois

And all the mistakes And all the things I’ve felt oh so bad about… I don’t feel bad about. Thank you, cannabis. I’m so good at beating myself up I really don’t need help But sometimes I seek it out, anyway… And I don’t feel bad about that. Sometimes I fight too hard For something…

Lies

All the men tell meThat they’re not gonna leaveAnd every single oneIs just lying through his teeth. All the men think thatThey can handle this diseaseAnd then they run awayThe second I start to bleed. All the men leave meThinking they’re stronger than meWhen they can’t even handleOne day of my eternity. All the men…

sabotage

What if I’m determined to fuck it up What if you can’t stop me What if I’m willing To go forever without love Just to feel safe? What if your love Will never be enough To make me feel safe? It’s too heavy, so I’ll burn it all down Just so I don’t have to…
