I wrote this poem in a deep state of depression. I still struggle to feel "good enough" for my partner. Slight trigger warning if you've got similar issues. This was very therapeutic to write.

You see my pallid face
and you call it beauty
I hear your ballad of love
and I feel pity.

Why must your love be so unrequited?
Realize for me, my admirer,
I wish I could feel your pain
I wish I could flush my hatred down the drain
I wish I could return your sweet love,
but please understand, I am not from above.

I will cause you pain, I will put you in a mental prison
you cannot escape, once you’re in and the beast has risen.
It will consume you from the inside, it will blacken your soul
Cause you to question your sanity, leave you in throe

You think you want me… you must be mistaken
my lack of compassion will leave you with darkness overtaken.
When you wrap around me, you’re making a pact with a whore
Say goodbye to all you loved, your life you lived before.

My sweet, I have tendencies to ruin lovers
I do not want to see you as empty as the others
They’ve grown to hate me for what I’ve done
Because for them, and for you, I am not the one.

You write to me words of such passion
I return them hesitantly, knowing my heart is cloven
I’m split between my hope for you
I’m split between my inability to feel that allure
I see your heart, I feel your warmth
Yet I still cannot return this sacred mirth.

For the sake of your heart, for the sake of your being,
Forget me, darling, your soul deserves freeing.
