POETRY & PROSE

POEM| Unlovable

old generators wail

like a thousand new-borns

the noise will trail

neat rows of houses outside

sifting through her window

like a genie. rub it

relentless dissatisfaction

piercing all factions of mind, body and soul

an identity fractured is all she offers.

Her bag is empty, her countenance devoid of tricks

her startling brilliance scares cerebral cravings

Her face refuses to launch ships.

Taking cues from her mood – embittered, unyielding.

she is stubborn,

rejecting sexy

love walks by, the redundant punch line

murdering any hope for exhilaration.

she might be unlovable, This makes her afraid

 

Sometimes her fears soak up everything around her

It drowns the mood

And kills the light in her lovers eyes

Neurotic, deranged

a dark cloudy veil wound tight around her entire being.

It makes her feel safe

and imprisoned.

Trapped in the sticky marinade

of hyperbolic thoughts

The conveyor belt of mediocre maybes

She frisks them searching

their eyes for security

their arms for strength to hold her baggage

She fights the tyranny of skewed gender narratives

prohibited from wanting more and calling first

playing it kind of cool so the bubble won’t burst

drinking pictures to subdue her thirst

you might be unlovable, this makes her afraid

  1. As cheesy as it sounds, this poem spoke to me. I can’t really word my thoughts well, but this is definitely marvelously written! Excellent job.

    P.S. In one of my earlier blog posts, I mentioned my intention of visiting every blog that follows me and leaving a little comment love as a small expression of my gratitude. Having said that, I personally want to thank you for being a part of my readership. You are incredibly wonderful, and your support means more to me than you realize! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•
