Piercing The Sky, A Book of My Poems
Author: Neil Evans

Chapter 166
How I Feel

Something snaps deep inside
When I read the words you typed
So I start eating some more sugar
Because it feels like my chest cavities ripped

I read his name and I think of everything
All the promises you never really kept
But, that's not fair, I never kept mine, either
I guess we could be both hurt, but this is me

Reading about how happy you are
I feel like a jealous little hypocrite
Because I can't be happy for you,
Instead I'm wishing I'd never left you

The loneliness is what kills me the most
No, not the expression, I'm really dying
I'm trying to hide it so you can be happy
But your words just keep spewing out

When I'm alone I think of you, try to talk about you
Then you turn right around, talk about him
My vision gushes out red and I start fuming
I grit my teeth as I realize I need to force the words back

We both know, I'm so jealous and possessive
I'm starting to think you were right
We should take some time away, not look at each other
If you love me, you'll let me go, that's how I feel
