APPLE’S TO ORANGES

A

This
pain
doesn’t
let up –
or
subside.

Some day’s,
it’s jus’
more
tolerable
t’hide.

Tell me;

What makes your feelin’s
more important than mine?

Tell me;

Why should I always have
t’be the one who’s pretendin’
they’re fine?

The fk?

This must be what they meant,
when they said; Love is blind.

You’ll never see the truth,
through this facade –
that I try t’hide behind.

I can’t allow you t’grind
any further inside o’my mind.

You’ve already grown
far too comfortable,
in the space you reside.

Tell me, why.

Why should I be the only one
who’s trust was defied?

Why should I be the only one
of us – You ‘n I – that’ve cried?

Why was it MY SON that died?

You know first hand how much
that shit hurts – deep down inside!

If you really do exist,
could you please be so kind
as t’give me any sorta sign
that my baby boy really is fine?

When do MY stars align?

The other day I looked for Heaven,
‘n all I saw was f’kin sky.

I wanna believe there’s more than this.

Lord, you know how hard I try.

It’s jus’

This
pain
doesn’t
let up –
or
subside.

Some day’s,
it’s jus’
more
tolerable
t’hide.

Tell me, why..

🔼 I pride myself on writing some of the REALEST poetry you'll ever read. Everything I share is based upon personal experiences, thoughts, & beliefs.. in my own style of poetic lyricism.

🔽 I'm in a lifelong battle with anxiety, depression, OCD, & this journey we call life. Point being; I won't hesitate to let you know when I cry, laugh, or straight up get caught in my feelings.

▫ And she said: "You write so beautifully. Your mind must be a terrifying place."
