teenage posts

When my friend ask me why I stayed so long…

Why I accepted the roses, and ignored the thorns…

I tell them,

It is not easy to weed out the roots he planted in me!

I tell them I was so captivated by the house he built for me, I didn’t notice the locked door.

I didn’t notice I was captive to this garden of guilt!

I tell them I tried leaving…

because of you!

Some people: “That’s vandalism!”
Other people: “That’s art!”
Me: “How the hell did they get up there?”
