Poem by Doniell Cushman
I Wanted, Instead
I wanted you to let me go
Instead you held a grudge
I wanted you to be a friends
Instead you became my enemy (frenemy?)
I wanted to tell you how I felt
Instead you unleashed your blows
I wanted to tell someone, anyone
Instead you silenced me with fear
I wanted to run away from you
Instead you blocked my path
I wanted it to just go away
Instead your family ran
