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
Forgive

Forget

Frail

Fail

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?
Because
Nice girl blood runs through my veins

And I’m a true glutton for pain
So
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

20140326-060245.jpg

Cracked ego,

Ruined self-esteem,

Damaged heart,

Broken mind,

Hated stomach,

Loathed ass,

I keep thinking it will pass

 

It won’t.

 

Used Goods…
