You or Me? Poem by sharon simani


Funny, isn’t it?
You are the broken one…….
Why am I the one in needs to be saved?
Now we run around after our tails
Caught up in this web of confusion.

This dark force is driving out the light
Too strong, too overwhelming……
We are not going back but I don’t see us moving forward
Stagnant like a mosquito infested paddle

Our noses wrinkled by the stench of our own feuds,
Glaring angry stares exchanged willy nilly.
Funny, isn’t it?
I love you, you hate me,
I am your girlfriend but you are not my boyfriend.
But when you never see the light it’s hard…..
Hard to know which one of us is fading.
