Black Love - Poem by Adryan Barnathan

I've learned to
control emotions
to forget to feel
any emotion
at all
so I won't go
ties me
to this situation
Imprisioned within
does not allow me to
let down barriers
so you have me
all to yourself now

    I hope, for your sake, this wasn't from personal experience. If it was I hope it isn't now.
    I feel all the emotions in this work.

    This is a powerful description.
    Chilling and very close to home.
    Also very brave to speak out.
