I want you to listen.
I don’t need any feedback.
I'm not happy in our relationship.

Mainly because i still feel some type of way from the summer.
Thinking i should bury the situation and my feelings. But i couldn’t.
The idea of telling myself “I’m ok with being pushed away” is ok, is not ok.
Deep down, this will happen again just like everything else did.
Causing us to be off, odd, & awkward.
This doesn’t mean i love you any less.
But i don’t see our relationship getting better.
Even though you pushed me away, I still love you
At first,
i did get over the summer
and the “pushing away” part.
I was fine (at first), but never fully.
I kept seeing repeated cycles as if nothing changed after you left.
My house transition from comfortable
to an uncomfortable home.
Some nights, I stay up late thinking about you coming back, only to feel those dark void moments again.
I don’t want that for us.
Apart of me wants to leave.
Even though you pushed me away, I still love you
Intimacy is one of my love languages.
But reading your body, you feel odd.
It doesn’t feel natural nor comes easy.
Your mouth says you want me
yet your body is uncomfortable.
I question myself, “Am I attractive for you?”
Believe that if we try again & again
things will never change, it’ll be the same.  
I love pleasing my partner
making my partner feel comfortable.
But that’s not the case here, is it???
Even though you pushed me away, I still love you
For awhile now,
i been thinking i came back into your life
as a friend and not a potential husband.
Simply because you needed a friend,
to help you get through whatever you’re truly battling that i'm not aware of.
Show you a different path where you can grow vs Chicago.
Leave the pass behind for good and be truly happy somewhere else without worry about
what others may want from you
or feel like you’re being used.
Even though you pushed me away, I still love you

I’m no fan of politics.
No opinion, or want,
on picking a man to run this country.
It’s hard to ask why I,
And my wayward countryman,
Do this.
1460 days; him or him?
And not that woman.
“Pick! Pick! Pick!”
That’s hard push ****!
You gotta do this.
You gotta do this.
You can all kiss my
Honey brown ***!
It’s important, ya’
But what if I don’t want this?
I’m a frosty *****,
And this man and that man,
Don’t know “no”.
But I do.
Don’t “ask” that I do that hard push ****.
Pick! Pick! Pick!
Pfft …

sooooooo, this was literally a constraint writing exercise for my class lol No use of the letter "e". It was actually kind of fun writing this although, the content in which we had to write it about - feminist outlook towards the presidential election - made me quite angry lol please ignore the rage. ENJOY

warriors did not build
there barriers to be broken
made with a brave stone  
no push could penetrate

were an army of 86
to pull its length,
its fall would cause eruptions.
the land would be calm
never to experience destruction

where did they come from?
why do they build blocks?
how does an army dare
to divide the great wall?
my walls are my study block. i cant get myself to study for anything and I have my exams coming up. nice poem I got out of it.

Open your eyes.
Break the habit.
Cut the old
With a hatchet.
Don't you worry
Don't you stress.
I will help you
Through the rest.

I'm your mentor.
I'm your guide.
I'll light your way
Through life's ride.
It's no problem.
I'm on your team.
Just take my hand
Before you leap.

It'll be hard.
It'll hurt a little,
But looking back
Where you started
Is such a miracle

You keep pushing me aside
Because you're afraid I'll ask
What's on your mind.
The thing is, I'm not going anywhere
Because I care
