--
I don’t know why he thinks I’m the fragile one, when he

cannot handle sleeping any less than 8 hours

without turning into a moody mess; when he

cannot spend one lazy weekend without seeing his friends

and cracks when he cannot play

less than 20 hours of video games a week.

It may be true that my hips look

like I ran them through a meat grinder,

and my tear ducts get more excersize than

my lungs have in years,

but I sleep 2 hours every night and

take care of my problems.

He loses himself in a flurry of

defensive apathy and bad excuses for

aggressiveness over what i consider child’s play.

I may spend days frustrated and alone, no freetime

with bruised eyesockets and

bloody gauze sandpapering away in my waistband,

panic attacks in the car- but I never

let anyone feel like they aren’t loved

just because I’m not 100%.

Well

I think I actually was inspired by Anarchist to start writing poetry again, although it was also inspired a bit by Angel Haze.

So, sounds like you have an abusive boyfriend. What's his name, so that I may hunt him down and gouge out his eyes, slit his nostrils, puncture his eardrums, remove his fingernails and then finally offer him the sweet release of death with my teeth to his throat?

not abusive

his behaviour hardly warrants that label. apathetic is probably the best descriptor. i just need to write so i don't go crazy
