Rejection



How does rejection feel?
Does it feel all too real?
Does it feel how it should feel?
What is its basis of apeal?

There is no apeal.
It does feel too real
like a regurgitated meal
There is no other way to feel

A sickening crack familiarizes your heart
And audibly, so audibly, you are torn apart
And I don't think you can ever really start
To try to recover from that pain upon your heart

But good news to rejected, there's another feel,
Because closure, my friend, it is also real
And soonafter rejection, one can feel
That they don't need acceptance to be considered real
