Unlove me

I’m like a

Clawless cat 

Climbing up a tree 

Trying to 

Hold on to love 

And life 

So…desperately

Patience is a

Virtue

But ain’t no

Virtue in me 

I’d rather rot

Alone 

In misery 

Than to be

Loved

Half-heartedly

I wish you

Would’ve 

Let me die

Instead of

Watered me 

If you couldn’t

Nurture me 

The way I 

Need to be

Because the

Time it takes 

For you to

Truly see 

Oh, I’ll be 

Dead alive 

The soul sucked 

Out of me

So let my

Body rot 

Turn me in-

To a tree 

With a wooden 

Sign that 

Says she 

Simply 

Couldn’t ‘be’

Lonely

Sorrow lives in this soul

Destined to loneliness 

Inevitably less than whole 

A sacrificial animal to all things 

Happiness not within my control

I’d rather disappear 

Than this reality be so
