Still

I loved him then and may love him still

But there is so much more to think and do in this world than be stuck with feelings for him

Feelings unguarded

Feelings unwanted

Feelings unrequited

Still, I entertain thoughts of him

Still, I find myself daydreaming

Still, I recall the hurt

The pain

And so, I realised I still have so much to learn

See My Bones

Would you like to see what’s inside me?

See the scars left by society

They haven’t healed, I think they never will

For all the times in their presence I’ve always felt ill

Maybe that’s why I prefer to be alone

In solitude I have grown

By myself, nothing and no one breaks my bones.

Different

I was never precious or fragile

I was hardly sweet and often too agile

They complain that I’m too much

Others say I’m not enough, as just such

I would never settle and they just can’t understand

I am not theirs to command

I stand out in a world that is full of the-sameness
