If I tell you the way I feel

And you say 

I shouldn’t feel like that

Or that it’s not your fault

You’re denying 

That your actions

Had consequences

Whether you expected them

Or not

My feelings are a legitimate reaction 

To the way I’ve been treated

So don’t tell me how I should feel

Or that I’m wrong

Take ownership

And learn how to apologize

Because I shouldn’t have to say

I’m sorry

For being emotional

When all I am 

Is feeling

  1. I can clearly hear this poetic statement ~ certain the recipient would as well.

    1. I definitely needed to vent. I get so frustrated when I can't express how I'm feeling. So I end up writing until it sorts itself out.
