You are my indigestible pain.
I let you in one evening
When my guard was down
And years later, you're still here.
It was easy for you.
You have a whole journey ahead.
An adventure where no turn is the same
And every step
Is a step towards the light.
I should have seen you for the deceptively sweet
Compressed amalgamation of useless waste
You really are.
I should have spat you out
As soon as your sugary veil had faded
And left you flat beneath the feet
Of the millions of people
Who would have done me better than you.
7 years, they say.
Great.
Just long enough for me
To forget
The lesson I thought I had learned.
