august 13, 2015/i don’t care whether you agree that women are oppressed in traditional relationships

of course you don’t
see the problem, you
are the problem

you own rooms during
conversations, challenge
any indication i might
have a well formulated opinion
with petty threats and theft
and stamina

when i am right you
need to remind me i
am also wrong about
some things

i take deep breaths,
stop shaking, find
justification for
your actions because
god knows you won’t
ever make it up to me

28 years on this planet and
you still haven’t figured out
that the word “but” should
never follow an apology or
that love is not something
you beat to death over
your own pride

i know you are bigger
can talk louder
and longer
