7.31.16 // #18 – you’re not as subtle as you think

no one chooses to feel one’s soul replaced by a boulder
no one chooses to feel perpetual anger
no one chooses to feel worthy of being abandoned
no one chooses to feel themselves doubted

no one asks to be treated like broken glass
no one asks to be described as a cry for help
no one asks to be told they are going to hell
no one asks to be told they’re invalid

no one wants to hear the whispers and furtive glances
no one wants to hear that a child could do what they cannot
no one wants to hear that they aren’t good enough
no one wants to hear that they’re not doing enough

no one wants these little things
because they are those things they already know
so save us your pity and your sorrow and indiscretions
because frankly we don’t need them or you
so save your breath because suffering
is not something we choose to do
