Love Letter #31

I used to think I was never good enough

yesterday’s throw up

like trash to decompose on the street

smashing up my heart so it couldn’t beat

ever again

but it wasn’t me, it has always been you

who wasn’t good enough

trying to make me blue

and confused

I was made to feel like less than a person

used up like a trampy hoe

Like I had no other place to go

but back to you

feeling discontent and used

I didn’t know that it was you

who was suffering from low self esteem

I just wanted to be heard,

I just wanted to be seen

I know now that I am the baddest bitch on the block

making other men swoon and flock

towards me

but I didn’t realize it was you and not me

It was an emotional coaster of a ride

that I wanted to continuously get off and hide

I didn’t like who I was becoming

I didn’t like who I thought I was

I used to think I was never good enough

But I was good enough

It was you

who was never good enough

for me

The “Love Letters” Series will be a collection of poetry written for and about love. Please comment below if you’re enjoying my thoughts and words. Some of these poems can be read as “Spoken Word” or a “Rap Song” or with a “Taylor Swift” angst, lol. – Peace and Love
