Im sick of going outside and getting hurt.

So I’ll just stay right here

-In this room.

I’m hurt from falling for guys who don’t love me back, when I’m in a one bedroom.


I am tired of getting back up and running into closed doors.

I broke my nose doing that..

Most importantly I need surgery from you.

-playing kickball with my heart

⁃ and never fetching the ball

⁃ leaving me in lingo when Sports was hardly ever my thing.

I can’t say I didn’t try my best, I can’t explain how I scored low on your every test.

I digress.

Our “relationship”

-I’ll give it some rest

I’ve found someone else I’d like to bless.

One thought on “Ache

  1. You’re like the Drake, Jhene’ Aiko and Mary J. Blige of the poem game lol. I really feel for you Brooke as your wordplay and imagery is very relatable. Got me rooting for your *happy ending* for sure and it’s super cool that you express yourself like this as I’m sure that it’s both liberating and therapeutic. ….. clap, clap bravo*
