House of Cards

August 14th, 2022

I hope this poem finds you well
Hiding in your house of cards
You gave enough to gain my trust
But you never dropped your guard
Too afraid to travel the world
Or have a serious conversation
Wasting my time like it’s yours to gamble
And you leave me in frustration
You never cared enough to ask
You treat life like it’s poker
So I will continue to fold
When I needed an ace but all I got was a joker
So I hope this poem brings you hell
Because I will call your bluff
And if you keep using people like toys
You will never be enough

April to July: Story of Goodbye

July 20th, 2022

For 125 days
I gave you my attention
Ignoring red flags
With no mention of intention
For seven days
I saw you in April
Consumed in spending time
Forgetting foundation was a staple
For ten days
I saw you in May
Digging my grave
I got carried away
For five days
I saw you in June
Six feet deep
And out of tune
And for one day
I saw you this July
Our counter has ended
And this is my goodbye

You Can’t Move Me

September 15th, 2009

What do you see when you look in the mirror
Because I feel like what you see is wrong
Who you are is said to be me
But I’ve known you all along
Maybe you’re too blind to tell
But I’m starting to see you
And it’s scary because I hate who you are
But there’s not much I can do
I see the way you act
But you pretend like that’s me
Your negative qualities
Are who I’m said to be
But I could be wrong
I could be becoming who you are
Then you made me like this
Because you pushed me too far
Always acting like you’re better than me
But I’ve got nothing to prove
And if I don’t stand my ground
You’re going to make me move
And I do this as my resentment towards you
This is the side of me that you see
And if you don’t change your ways
This is all you’ll ever know of me
