Random Poem:

Psychoanalyst
treerain

Some reason is telling me that
 1
there is something to be done right now
 2
and Some man thinking that he knows
 3
What it’s like to be me
 4
all the while he’s lying.
 5
Asking about my childhood, not
 6
that I don’t remember it, but
 7
I don’t think he needs to know
 8
to tell me what he thinks,
 9
he has a predisposed opinion.
 10
I’d love to know what they’re thinking sometimes
 11
Then, I’d never have to worry about crossing lines
 12
that they didn’t quite draw, hoping
 13
I wouldn’t see them
 14
and go on suffering silently
 15
in the background.
 16
I’ve gotten used to
 17
such existence.
 18
 
 
Why doesn’t he just let me be?
 19
just let me live to die
 20
just like everyone else…. only in a bit more pain
 21
than the rest
 22
knowing that in all the problems
 23
that I say I have… those that I would like to fix
 24
are the ones that aren’t even mine
 25
