The timeline of me and you

I hate that you dont truly hear me when i express my feelings

I hate that when i asked for space that first time, knowing this wasnt going to be a good mix, you got upset.

Not respecting my boundries

I hate that you thought taking me out of your life, and not interacting was gonna solve the issue

I hate that i agreed to form and build upon a relationship with you

I hate that you werent self aware of any part of your emotional sense

What i could see, you simply denied or agreed so it could be put away or set aside.

I hate that at the end of the day i had to  state what you left unspoken. now you say it was my sentiments, in that statement, that are the root.

I simply just put into words what you felt, and showed.

I hate that at the end of the day, i played myself by willingly choosing to dance this performance that at first meant so much to you.

And now after all is said and done, you can finally breathe and move forward in your days.

Meanwhile i am left with the aftermath of what this situation has left me feeling.

I dont blame you, im not mad.

I just wish you were more concious of yourself, and what you really want.

In the end im just dissapointed in all of it.

The worst part is i have to sort and heal the wounds/ feelings.

This whole thing has reopened parts of hurt that i have to repair... again.

I like things that have double meaning, things that make you take a second look, ponder a little deeper, and touch your heart. Poetry is something I've always loved. I had no idea i could put my poems anywhere until a friend told me about this website. Please enjoy more…
