Need Some Fresh Air

Need Some Fresh Air

A Poem by MadalaJose

That stare, that glare
Looking me up and down
Over-looking and looking me over
Drowns me into a quagmire of insecurity

That talk, that negativity
That mock, that insensitivity
Suffocates me, leaves me gasping for air
Every second spent with you is asthmatic

Listening to you gossip
Is like sipping a glass of gall
It upsets my stomach
It frustrates my digestion 

So if you no longer see me around you
I just need to breathe
I just need some fresh air

People who gossip leave us breathless in a bad way most times and we look for ways to avoid them, I would say it is good to always avoid negative energy that comes through gossip
