Drawn Taboo - Poem by Lynette Lawrence

I thought of the
Things I went through
Because of you

I felt sorry
I felt disgusted
I felt ashamed
I simply wished on a plane

But I was stuck
Stuck right here
Gray Walls
No such thing as horizon here

I thought of the things
I have missed
I was stuck in sticking to it

I knew I made a promise
I knew what I did was a mistake
Reliving it
Was the goal I had set for that day

Between gray walls
I carried out an unspoken request
I had the courage to draw a taboo
At least it reminds me of me and you

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Maybe a few things about this poem, this is the original version, there weren't any crosses or correlates on the sheet I wrote it originally on.

The "taboo" is, as you might have recognized, a metaphor, just imagine an personal meaning for it, but to me it's something very special.

This is for cold espresso (even though I didn't want to write poems for/because of this person anymore) .
