Hours Of Confusion - Poem by Le'Nesha Holt

Though I wear his chain around my neck, I think about you.
I’m confused, I know, but I’m not sure why that is.
I’ve tried to move on, Lord knows I have.
I’ve spent so much energy over being in pain.
If only you could understand, you’d get it.
No one ever goes looking for love in a friend.
It just happens.
Like a jigsaw puzzle I try to put the pieces of my broken heart back together.
But that day on the stage I guess some of them got lost because I’m still not all there. And I’ve tried to respect your desire to enjoy your senior year.
I don’t mean to bother you because I know you don’t care.
I’ve been trying to heal for a long time now.
It makes me even angrier that another wants to love me,
Is trying to love me, but I’m afraid of being hurt again.
I wish I could let him, because no one really deserves you.
Life’s not fair though because I still love you.
