She wears her pain
as a smile on her face
because it calms
her aching heart
I’ll show you
how to love me
so you’ll know
how to please me and never fail me

I’ll let you
see the real me
flaws and all me

I’ll let you
see me in a way
no one else has

I’ll let you in
Mariam Shittu May 29
I sent you so many messages
without sending you any.

I called you a thousand times
without calling you at all.

I wrote you a letter
without letting you read it.

I drove by
without coming in.

I left so many things unsaid
and now we’re out of time.

butterflies and flowers
champagne and dessert
my first and my ex
got nothing on you

Twenty years later
but I still remember
that horrid smell
your smell

Twenty years later
and I still haven’t  
told my story to anyone
willing to listen

Twenty years later
and I still hate you
and pray you aren’t
hurting someone else

Twenty years later
but I still remember
your smirk
and your wicked smile

Twenty years later
but it feels like today
you broke me
and left me scarred for life

tie me up
hold me down

wage war on me
tarnish my name

disown me
deny me love

reject me
label me a freak

neglect me
deprive me of affection

I’ll still be me in every way

I’ve been waiting
patiently waiting

for my day

the day I will be noticed
the day I will be appreciated

for my day

the day I’ll be your treasure
the day I’ll be your starlight

for my day

the day my smile will be the brightest
the day my heart will beat the fastest

for my day

the day I will feel complete
the day you will finally see me
