When Being Me Hurts

No Gravatar

love me too

I’m sorry

I can’t be

the me

we want

me to be

when we want

me

to be

the way

that we want.

I’m thankful

to have

the you

that you get to be

most of the time

but especially

when I have you

in my arms

or next to me.

I appreciate

the little things

you bring to me

because all

my big things

are sharp

and rough

and choppy

and make me feel

empty.

You fill me up

with laughter

with time

going deep

but it can’t overpower

the overdose of

hostility’s undercurrents

I am sure

I love

me

but I don’t love

when being me

hurts.
