My Life Be Like, poetry

Triggered

Photo by Vladimir Palyanov on Unsplash The sound of your voice sends me into a rage.  Days of seeing your face I wish I could erase.  Being in your presence is about as uncomfortable as walking pass a group of men outside of the corner store.  Everything you say makes my heart race but not… Continue reading Triggered
