Today nolonger did I hold back

No distractions in my way

There lies too many issues

Not being addressed

So I let them be

Ugly, bold, and beautiful

The disappointments I live with

There is only good leftover

After crying out the pain

Where I go from here

Isn’t all in my hands

But nolonger am I

Allowing myself to go

Quietly into the night



Looking across the room

Still can’t explain

Why out of everyone

I’m the one you ignore

If I was smart I’d let it go

Though if I was honest

You only matter

Because I don’t matter to you

Because I can’t put you

On the shelf, in your place

With all the others
