Being Pushed Away

Being Pushed Away

A Poem by Jamie Starlight

Storms oftentimes cause damage when the roof over your head isn’t solid

Friendship should be holding up the roof with two pillars

Strong infrastructure lasts the longest against a downpour


Except I’m soaked to the bone and I think you are too

 I’m temperamental and you're avoidant

I fear loss and you crave solitude


Maybe this interstice is my impulsive nature

Heated with a flame, off with a spark

I explode at the slightest touch


Maybe this division is depression manifested

Numbness cuts out pain

Your safe if there’s nothing to say


Maybe this puncture is you pushing me away

Your mind is needle, your voice is thread 

Instead of putting stitches in you rip them out


Whether its caused by me, chemicals, or you

We’re still under a cloudburst holding up a damaged roof

Please just open an umbrella so I can patch up the cracks
