Tug o' War
Emotions,
Tugging at my heart-
As if it’s a game of Tug o' War.

Positive v.s. Negative-
Who will win?

I get pulled to the right,
As kind words float from smiling mouths.
I smile back,
Swallowing those words as if I haven’t eaten in years.

I get pulled to the left in a heartbeat,
As cruel truths hurl out from angry voices.
I feel my smile fade,
Vomiting out those once kind words-
to make room for the truth.

Emotions,
Tugging at my heart-
As if it’s a game of Tug o' War.

Positive v.s. Negative-
Negative will win.
