Michelle [non-fiction]

You know every now and again I drop some poetry on yall. I won’t get into the hairy details behind this piece. You have to buy my next book for that. Enjoy…

Michelle

I heard the road to hell is

paved with good intentions

I am hurt

Doesn’t matter if it was unintentional

So I am presented with the choice to

either pursue love and let you kill me

or defend myself and my feelings

last time was the last time

so I left

I can feel bad all by myself

I don’t need your help

I gave it everything

until everything was gone

another failed attempt

at not being alone

Now you are a victim, I guess, of

what we call fate

“Here’s much to do with hate,

but more with love.

Why, then, O brawling love!

O loving hate!”

You are a pretty face that

I have to remember to forget

An evicted thought

that I will allow to linger a bit

I love(d) you

and in learning to love again

I have revisited hate

I hate feeling this way
