Cutting Ties with Your Ex: A Poem
I’m too tired for this today.
I have no words to say
all the things I need to.
Let’s not begin again.
I don’t want my head to spin.
This raised tone that drones on and on,
us talking sounds like a skipping song.
There’s too much tension from where we’ve come.
You say it’s love, I say you’re wrong.
We’re too attached with disconnect.
I can’t stand it. Let me collect
my sanity that I’ve lost
at the cost of depleting pride.
I’ve stayed with you though it kills inside.
No guts to leave, so I hide.
It’s not healthy, how we relate.
We love as strong as we hate.
So I think It’s time I say,
“We both should go our separate ways.”
