Stranger

I stare blankly across the room as I reminisce over you.
Lost in my thoughts in attempts to decipher what we’ve gone through.
You’ve become a stranger in a land so familiar.
Battles have been fought together, but now you’re the sole victor.
I’ve become an enemy to you, when all I’ve ever done was support you.
You change as often as the day breaks;
and I stood by your side through all of your lies.
But, I couldn’t pretend that everything was okay anymore.
I had to say goodbye.
I had to let go.

Influence

Easily influenced,
you’re led astray.
Constantly doing things that push me away.

Easily influenced,
you’re full of excuses
as to why you’re the cause of all my bruises.

Easily influenced,
you’re good at this game.
Your empty apologies have brought you great fame.

Easily influenced,
you’re too smart to be swayed;
and those that stand by you
are those you’ve betrayed.

Fatigue

They say when the bad outweighs the good,
then walk away from it all.
But, I couldn’t turn my back on you,
despite what you put me through.
Now, the fatigue has overtaken me.

It’s only human to want the best for those you love,
and it’s only human to try your best to never hurt those people,
so I kept trying to maintain your presence in my life.
But, the fatigue has overtaken me.

People tell me I’m blind to your mistakes,
but the truth is, I was never blind to them at all.
I was just in denial.
But, I can no longer lie to myself,
because the fatigue has overtaken me.

When have you ever fought for me,
the way I’ve fought for you?
I no longer have the strength to fight these battles alone.
The fatigue has overtaken me.

It hurts me to say that, “I no longer care,”
but there’s a point when it must be said.
You’ve grown too comfortably with me,
and arrogantly enclosed yourself in your security blanket,
no matter how loud I have screamed.
But, today you’ll learn that your security blanket,
can no longer offer you the safety you sought,
because the fatigue has overtaken me.

And though I’d much rather greet you with a “Hello” than a “Goodbye,”
the fatigue has overtaken me.

Boa Constrictor

Harder to breathe,
Never relieved.
Heart racing,
I fell prey to stress,
As it compresses the life out of me,
like a boa constrictor.

Sleep deprived,
Wide awake,
No matter the hour,
Anxiously awaiting,
the end of my fate,
When I lose the strength,
To keep fighting,
and become prey to stress,
my boa constrictor.

You’re A Ghost

You’re a ghost at times,
but to no fault of your own.
How can one cope
when they’re all alone?

You’re a ghost at times,
and it’s sad how we’ve grown
so distant in miles,
it’s harder to smile.

You’re a ghost at times,
yet your presence is so near.
So why does it hurt,
and why do we fear?

You're A Ghost

What Do You Do?

What do you do when your heart disagrees with your mind?
and your mind disagrees with your feelings?
and your feelings disagree with society’s?

What do you do when you love what is wrong?
and what is wrong feels so right?
but what is right isn’t right for you?

What do you do when a limit is placed on your happiness?
and your happiness is limited by what is right?
and what is right does not make you happy?
because what is right is so wrong for you?

What do you do when your mind prevents you from sleeping?
and your heart beats so loudly that you start hyperventilating?
as you inhale and exhale hoping that the anxiety subsides?

What do you do when you keep asking questions?
and these questions have no real answers?
except for answers that tell you to do what is right?
when what is right is so wrong for you?

What do you do when you feel like you’re letting go of hope?
and the hope was hardly hope to begin with?
because the remnants of such hope only tell you to do what is right?
when what is right will never be right for you?
