Poetry #26

See if you can guess what’s going on in my life! Winner gets a candy bar.

Kindness

You gave up everything for me
And here I am thinking of someone else
Always the bad guy, always the big boy, always making the decisions
I still want the same things I did before
I still dream of the same things I did before
I still think of him with his unnamed face and his arms
In the end, only kindness matters
Do I feel selfish, unkind
Do I feel tainted
Do I feel selfish
Pink and neon and lifting and smiling
Unhappy
Broken broken broken broken broken broken broken broken

Tears

I’m 75 pounds overweight
And working at a job I hate
And I think that my relationship’s going to die
I’m slipping into a pool of sadness
Warm and comfortable breathing water
And all I want is to sit in a room with the lights dimmed and dry my
Tears on a towel stained with memories of better times
