Don’t believe them!

 

The ones who claim
to be better than the rest,
are the ones who end up
hurting us the most.
Why?
Because we
actually believe them!

Don’t fall for their
hypnotizing song and dance,
for the lies they feed us
are not fit
for human consumption.
Instead,
toss their servings of drivel
to the swine,
for we all know
they’ll eat anything!

Let’s be friends

image

 

You chased me.
You made me feel amazing.
You made me think
what we had
was the best you ever had.

I actually thought so too
then you tossed me aside.
Now you want to be friends.
You say I’m your best friend.

You say this is
the best friendship
you ever had.
But how am I
supposed to be friends
with someone who
made me feel used?

This is not a friendship,
I was just a placeholder
for the void you needed filled.
I was just there to give you
what you couldn’t get from her.

This is not fun, it’s pure agony.
It’s time for me to move on.
It’s time for me to realize
you used me.
It’s time for me to admit
you made a fool of me.

It’s time for you to know
what you did is not ok.
It’s time for you to understand
you took advantage
of my brokenness.

You can’t break my heart
then expect me to be smile
at all your little jokes.
This isn’t funny, it’s pure hell.
My broken heart is real.

No, we cannot be friends.

This hurts

image

 

Maybe one day
My struggles
would be over.

Maybe one day
I wouldn’t have to be
someone’s charity case.

Maybe one day
This awful feeling
would go away.

Maybe one day,
God willing,
I’ll finally be ok.

Fighting back the tears

image

 

A sad song plays on the radio.
She fights back the tears
while trying to smile
at her next customers.

The lovely couple
is oblivious to her pain.
They’re madly in love
oozing affection for each other.

She wants to throw up.
This is the last thing
she needs to see.
Is this a cruel joke?

How ironic that
she’s surrounded
by so many people
but yet feels so alone.

This hurts too much

image

 

I don’t want to be
‘in love’ with you anymore.
This hurts too much.
Love isn’t supposed to feel like this.
I know this will seem absurd
but I pray that God please
take my love for you away.
This agony is killing me.
