The Weak Man Disease

What does going through a breakup

and being cheated on

and being betrayed feel like?

 

It feels like I have to wake up every 

morning with a smile on my face and 

not say anything in fear that I’ll be viewed 

as that crazy ex.

 

It feels like I have to suck up all of the 

built up tears every time I see his

lying ass face so I can look like I

just don’t give a damn.

 

It feels like a scream inside you that 

just won’t come out and grows into this

cancerous lump that you can’t get rid of inside

of your throat.

 

But he says that I should just move on.

But he says that he’s sorry. 

“We should be friends.”

So he can lie to me without a title

and disrespect me without a title

and go for the girl he always wanted anyways

but hid in fear that I would speak up 

like any strong woman would.

 

Like any weak man would do.

Hello, I am a filmmaker. I am working on an animation for a class at the University of Utah. I was wondering if you would be interested on writting some poetry for my project. 

I love what you wrote,  "It feels like a scream inside you that just won’t come out and grows into this cancerous lump that you can’t get rid of inside of your throat." Please message me if you are interested and I can give you more details about the project.  I am willing to pay you for your time and talent.

Thank you!
