Tug Of War
You’ve loved with your entire heart
but the love returned to you has been scarce.
You’ve continuously given the best of you
only to receive scraps of leftovers.
You are always there for others in need
but when it’s your turn, no one is present.
The Forever Friends
He said he’s just a platonic friend
one minute and the next he wants to be
have weekly benefits because that’s the best
he’s willing to give you
no matter how much he tries
to convince you he loves you deeply.
He’s told you he loved you
countless times but to show
how much, he refuses to sacrifice.
Too bad, you are attached to him
with your insecure self; you do not
understand your worth.
But because you love him in return,
you willing accept whatever
he’s enthusiastically given you no matter
how you feel about finding Mr. Right.
The truth is, you cherish him too much
and you always will so you put up with
his breadcrumb laced excuses.
She’s unhappy in every way,
her smile carved in stone.
Misery is her best friend,
it accompanies her wherever she travels.
She tries to find happiness in everything,
neglecting to search the one place she is destined
to find the key, available in her heart;
the only spot she’ll always feel content.
Family Is The Worst
Some families will tell you the worst lies.
They’ll destroy you and drain you
for every penny you’re worth.
Keep them closer than your competitors
and I’m stating this with experience.
When I think about my family,
sometimes, my heart tingles with scorn
to remember the things they did
to assassinate my mentality.
