if your an anime/manga fan you might have heard of LOVELESS. this poem was inspired by it. if you haven't heard of LOVELESS, this poem is slightly dark about inner turmoil.

Him or Me

Who shall I be?

Will I act one way

to Her appease?

Or be myself

happy and carefree?


Different names

for different acts.

How hard can it be you ask?

You'd be surprised

by how difficult it may be.

To not mess up,

not act strangely

and risk Her anger, Her hate,

Her wrath.


You can't defend.

You can't attack.

You can only pray for it to end.

You can only hope that this time

it will end, that her rage will

cease. That someone

will hear your mental cries

and stop her before

you are no more.


All day, every day

you live in fear.

Hoping for help, a savior, a knight

not daring to tell the truth

about your clumsy fall, absentminded trip,

accidental cuts, bruises, and scrapes.

Avoiding home yet not daring to defy Her.

Evading family, friends, and others,

hardly daring to get close.

Hoping, praying that one day,

you can be yourself,

with nothing to hide.
