Release

All that hype,
Needing this attention
We were so unwilling
To give.
Can you now see why
We carry this sense
Of unwillingness.
Days upon days,
Weeks upon weeks,
Years upon Years!
You have begged
And yelled
And lowered yourself
To the level of violence
You professedly hated.
To receive this of what
We rarely attempt
To give you.
When we finally
Deem you worthy
Of pure openness,
In total trust
Of your respect
For our feelings
In total awe
Of your somewhat
.. Stilted patience.
We get this.
This of which we knew
We knew
Was meant to happen
Our misplaced trust and awe
It is realised,
Nothing by you
Could have instilled
Such feelings.
It was the hope,
The want,
The need,
To release.

We have received
Our punishment.
This total
Disappointment
And rage
From your blank stare
And dismissing expressions,
Your sneer of disgust

It became clear,
You aren’t what was needed.
but,
The slow burning release
gained from the
Reflection of writing.
Slowly, painstakingly
Throwing in words that
Hardly express
The aching need.
Even so,
Maybe this,
This is what writing is for?
