The Second Beat
I am stubborn like my life depends on it—
but honestly I can’t control it,
in this life
i’ve been manipulated
made fun of
most of all, hurt.
forgive and forget?
not always the case,
not easy to forget when empty promises and abandonment is
thumping on the inside of my brain,
like a second heartbeat going through my bloodstream
not allowing me to forgive—
and especially forget.
