Labeled The Nice Girl #Poetry #Poem #ASMSG


I woke up and thought

“I hate being the nice girl”

My niceties make me want to hurl




I exhaled

How many times do I say it’s OK?

Tell the dickheads to have a nice day?
Kill’em with kindness it’s how I was raised

Except I’m afraid I’m done with that maze
I’m tired of always being the bigger ‘man’

I’m thinking shit’s about to hit the fan
I hate feeling like I’ve been used

That my niceties are being abused

Don’t take me for granted

Damn it!

Who am I trying to fool?

I’ll continue to be the pack mule
I put on my mask…

Why you ask?
Nice girl blood runs through my veins

And I’m a true glutton for pain
Nice girl will always be my trait

I hate

Psst… I’m not a quitter #ASMSG #Poetry #Poem #Moanday


It’s morning and of course I’m thinking of you

I’m always thinking of you

Your wants, your desires fill my bed

Your needs, your worries roll around in my head


I want to take it all away

Tell you it’ll be OK…


But you’ll have none of that


You have been hurt and wronged

For love you have longed


You refuse to be vulnerable again

So you hide away in your den


You have a tongue as sharp as a sword

You use it against others when you’re bored


If I care too much

I’m fucked


So what!


You can’t chase me away

I always find a way


I know you’re trying

But I’m not buying


Psst… I’m not a quitter, thought you should know.

Used Goods… #Poetry #DamageGoods


Cracked ego,

Ruined self-esteem,

Damaged heart,

Broken mind,

Hated stomach,

Loathed ass,

I keep thinking it will pass


It won’t.


Used Goods…
