Poetry Blogs (2019, Empathy)
You call me selfish for trying to take what is mine, and mine only, and do with it as I wish
Your claim and the belief behind it, is even more so
And, though you may not realize, all you are doing is prioritizing your pain over mine
You pacify your fear of heartache with my suffering
So tell me true, if you were in my shoes - if you overlooked your own feelings to e...

Her hair covered
Her head down
A baby in the push chair
Not one familiar place around.
The shop girl served her,
Speaking loud and slow

As the shop girl spoke
The lady didn’t realise
The condensation invoked.
The man with the tattoos

'The Lady of the House
Whom he loves'
