Toxic: A Poem

Why is it so much easier for you to kick me down than to help me up?

Toxic: A Poem

Why is it so much easier

for you to kick me down than to help me up?

I had finally reached a high in my life

only for you to tell me that I wasn't enough.

I'm gone for weeks at a time,

simply minding my own business.

The second you see my face,

you shoot your gun of hate as if I was on your hit list.

Certain love is unconditional,

that's what they always say.

Then why, when you're mad at yourself,

I'm the one that has to pay?

Sometimes you don't mean it,

you think of yourself as innocent.

Then where did these scars come from on my heart?

You could see why this is a predicament.

You seem confused when you ask

why I never call back.

Why would I call the single person

who has nothing better to do than attack?

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.
