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.
