Disillusionment of Your World

people tell me to

open up and let it out

but when I speak up

it seems they all run away

I don’t mean to harm

your comfy and naive world

the world you crafted

that shuts out those who feel things

those who speak freely

those who don’t fit in a box

we are not perfect

I sure as hell don’t pretend

that I don’t suffer

some extraordinary pain

unseen by others

but when you deny this pain

ignore the feelings

painted clearly on my face

you deny yourself

a true and real existence

you deny yourself

empathy, love and kindness

when you need it most

Write, Release, Repeat

Please put that damned pen down”

 

Go talk to someone”

 

not realizing writing helps

 

I don’t want to talk

 

don’t want to sit in a chair

 

just to talk about

 

emotional attachment

 

just to see someone judge me 

 

for not moving on

 

to feel awkward when I cry

 

I’d rather write down

 

the way I feel, without shame

 

without the stigma

 

of someone from the outside

 

forcing themselves to dig in

The Discourse of Us

if I could go back in time

 

I’d choose not to leave

 

the quiet town that was home

 

the place I miss most

 

if I could go back in time

 

I would not meet you

 

I can’t imagine that life

 

one that is peaceful

 

a life without the heartbreak

 

without questioning my worth

 

the life I wish I had now
