Understand - Poem
Jensen "Jey" Bodholdt
 
He doesn't understand.
I'm not happy in my own skin.
He doesn't understand.
I hide my pain behind strange men.
 
He doesn't understand.
They don't want to be my friends anymore.
He doesn't understand.
I'm beaten down, fucked up, and poor.
 
He doesn't understand.
This bottle is my friend.
He doesn't understand.
I just want the pain to end.
 
He doesn't understand.
I've lost all reasons to live.
He doesn't understand.
I am too broken to love him.
 
He doesn't understand.
Why I'm always feeling down.
He doesn't understand.
Why I can't just stick around.
 
He doesn't understand.
He will never understand.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
I don't understand.
Why wasn't she happy?
I don't understand.
Didn't she know she could trust me?
 
I don't understand.
I still care about her.
I don't understand.
What happened to forever?
 
I don't understand.
She wouldn't stop drinking.
I don't understand.
She wouldn't stop cutting.
 
I don't understand.
We can never be together.
I don't understand.
I know in my heart I still love her.
 
I don't understand.
I'm sitting here staring at her grave.
I don't understand.
Why couldn't she have been saved?
 
I don't understand.
I will never understand.
