A poem I wrote to go through what happened today. If it’s alright with you, I’d rather not talk about it.
Turning Away from the One I Looked Up To
I walked away with their words—
They were daggers,
Floating around me.
I fended them off with songs,
My scratchy voice.
But eventually, I bled
Not blood, but
Someone I looked to
Called me a fool.
Yet I surely they didn’t mean it.
But it still hurts, you ask?
