Unnecessary Warrior (Poem #83)

I ran out of words to say

I ran out of reasons to stay

I ran out of love to give

I am now filled with the courage to deceive

I was once madly in love

now I’ve gone mad, it’s love that I don’t have

Maybe it’s from what we’ve done

or what I didn’t do

or maybe all along, you wanted to be gone

but so hard, I held on to you

This is no longer love

when such pain hurts this long

this is clinging, this is grabbing

this ain’t loving

this is obsessing

this is madness

but for you, why am I still fighting?

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.
