A Short but Powerful Poem

People only have power over you if you allow them to. 

When I came to your house

I was wearing grey,

I walked through your front door there was was nothing to say.

Exchanged a few hi's and you were ready for action

A few minutes of pain to your satisfaction.

It was quick

I was easy

It was all my fault

A year later and my hair started to molt

I told you and begged you that I wanted more

Only to see your friends who had called me a whore

I felt sick

I felt tired

Past my sell by date expired

I felt comfort in food, I felt comfort in sex

Even comfort in texting my female friend's ex

We went to a few gatherings

I've seen you since

It was two days after march sixteenth
