Heavy heart……

When she closes the door on the day
and locks herself away from all the

drama and all the hate, she would love
to tell you how empty she feels inside

how bleak and black are her thoughts.
But she won’t, she knows you only

listen to reply. She will bury it and
slowly she is smothering under

the weight of it all. She can only be
who she is. She is not obligated to

fulfill and entertain your fantasies
and your fairy tales.

White teeth behind crooked smiles
smelling of whiskey and desperation

infused with lust and a hint of disdain.
Leeches, who come to drain

to feed and take from you and
when they’re done they leave

you to recover so they can
come back and do it again.

They will try and cut your wings
try to tame the freedom in your feet.
Don’t let them.
