Things Not to Do 


I miss the feeling of being in love

In the coldest of my nights, I miss it’s warmth. 

I ignore the wrongdoings of my past lovers 

And I reminisce in its bliss. 

Because he is comfortable.

And I am still broken. 


So I let them ravage my body

Un welcomed as they were. 

Because in that moment, I am close to you.

I close my eyes and pretend that 

this is what intimacy feels like. 

Knowing that when he is gone

I will feel more alone than ever before. 

I begin to think maybe 

He wasn’t so comfortable after all. 

So tonight, I lie awake

Tossing and turning in my bed

Hoping to find a woman

Who’s love is so powerful

I will come to regret 

The mistreatment of myself.
