Hurting me
Was an easy road
You took quite often

My problem
is that I care.
I care way too much.

I care a lot
about what others
would think,
say and feel
about me.

I care too much
about losing people
who wouldn’t even care
about losing me.

Caring has become
my ultimate downfall.

"I feel--know--that I'm walking on eggshells."

Says the man
who lied and cheated
on his wife
several, several times.
In thoughts,
In words,
In deeds.

His reason?
He was unhappy.

As if he was the only one.

Has he ever stopped to think
what she's been walking on?
What he's putting her through?
How he makes her feel
alienated and sad,
alone and lonely?

As if he was the only one.

How convenient to tell himself that.

They were a restless tribe.
They did not sit in sunlight, eating grapes together in the afternoon.

Cloud-watching among them was considered a disgusting waste of time.

They passed the days in an activity they called “thought-provoking,”
as if thought were an animal, and they used long sticks

to poke through the bars of its cage,
tormenting and arousing thinking into strange behaviors.

This was their religion.
That and the light shining through the stained-glass ancestors.

They preferred the name of the tree
to the taste of the apple.

I was young and I wanted to prove myself,

but the words I learned from them transmuted me.
By the time I noticed, the change had alrea...

The pain
is too real
too deep
too frequent
For me to forgive
to move past
to let go and
to forget

“You become the thing that you hate.”

But you never hated the man.

And yet you turned out to be just like him.

And then one day,
it just happened.
Like a click,
a snap,
a zap.

I couldn't stand
the sight of you.

I fight off and reject
any thoughts of you.

I gave up on whatever
I had with you.

Suddenly,
it hit me.

I'm done being around you.
I'm done listening to you.
I'm done reaching out to you.
I'm done waiting for you.

I am done living
with you,
for you.

I am done
feeling anything
for you.

I'm so depleted.

I am painfully done.

It must be nice
to have someone

who you can always
randomly
incessantly
consistently
talk to

who would listen
not to patronize you
but because there
is genuine interest
in all things
that fascinate you

JUST LOVE

Tonight I read about
stonewalling and gaslighting
and at the back of my mind
I was a-frenzy ticking boxes

I am ready.
Ready for the next phase.
Ready to start over.
A new chapter without you.
I am ready to say goodbye.
I am ready to let you go.

“It’s like I killed your dad or something, the way you’re crying.”

No.
You didn’t kill anyone.
It’s just me.
You just broke my heart.
You just broke my trust.
You just tore me apart.
Again.
And that’s fine, right?
Not worth crying over.

to the fact that
I haven’t forgiven you
and
I haven’t forgotten
any of it,

I’m currently tiptoeing
in and out, around my life
Cos a small misstep
Can cause a chain
Of everything dear
Falling out
Falling apart

But it's not for you they sing,
And if you think my winter is too cold,
You don't deserve my spring.”

“Do not hold your breath for anyone,
Do not wish your lungs to be still,
It may delay the cracks from spreading,
But eventually they will.
Sometimes to keep yourself together
You must allow yourself to leave,
Even if breaking your own heart
Is what it takes to let you breathe.”

Things that I know
Things I believed in
Things I’ve come to love

Everything
is falling
folding in
imploding

And it hurts.
It suffocates.

Everything
fucking hurts.
