Poems: Unwanted Ads - Feelings

Updated on July 19, 2012

Don’t like feeling the way I do

Certainly don’t want these feelings to be about you

Not because I don’t love you

But I’m tired of giving you my power

Trying to make these feelings invisible by the hour

I’m frustrated at insecurity

Sad about loss

Angry at selfishness

Disgusted with love

Weary of anger

Worn out from tears

Sick of my fears

Got me tired of playing the love game, and I just got started

Spent too many years before trying not to join the broken-hearted

But to you that’s all I’m worth

A lesson in pain, a test on hurt

I just want these feelings to go

Keeping them around is stunting my growth

There’s no room for change where these feelings reside

Desperately I want a clean house

Feelings it’s time for you to get the hell out

Notice has been served on your stay in my mind

From these feelings, I want to move forward and never look back

Never again will I let these same feelings attack

In fact, I’m done feeling anything, numb is the way to be

Liked it better in the days when numbness protected me

See what happens when you open your heart trying to let a little love in?

You lose yourself, and a so-called friend

      Thanks Dialogue. I've said it before and I'll say it again; The world of writing is so new to me. I'm still in awe that people appreciate what I've done. I feel like Sally Field getting her Oscar.
