Against You (Poem #34)

It has always been you and me
against all odds
you’d hold my hand
or gently wrap your arms
and that would have me thinking
how close I am to a fairytale
but just like tales with ups and downs
there came a point that I loathed
having you around

Your gentle hands around my neck
became ropes claiming possession
which I longed to escape

Just like a puzzle piece out of place
or a cup of coffee on a summer’s heat
there’s something about us
I bet is most likely a mistake
between us, something is just off

I guess the love and lust will never be enough
we need something more than that
you need to stop protecting me from others
just to have me for yourself
I need to stop being so dependent
and realize that it’s from you
I need to be protected

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
