I am no stranger to disappointment.

She and I have spent many a night curled up in bed

Watching tears roll down my cheeks

Her poisonous words pooling in my heart

The warmth of rejection heating my skin.

She would crawl under my sheets

Every time validation eluded me

“You are not enough” she’d say

And her words would echo through every part of me.

I would like to say I don’t need validation

But I do

And as long as I do, she will always be here

With me

In me

And nothing I do will ever be enough.

  1. Thank you for sharing!!.. The one that has the problem is “she”… 🙂

    “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together”… Marilyn Monroe
