The Scars I Got (Poem #51)

Admired when I am shining

pushed down even more

when I am struggling


And when I got jealous of all these girls

you shut me up

like being able to feel flood of emotion was my fault


And when I can’t help

but turn you down on a late night call

you yell into my ear

until I am not dead sleepy anymore


When I can’t help but say no

you push me to my limits

until a yes is all that’s left


Now I wonder why

everytime we touch

you always ask where my scars are coming from


Does it take too much

to look at your own hands?

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
