Honestly This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I hear you yelling again,
My ears clogged with anger.
Like a disease your words,
Slowly poison my mind

Honestly, I feel powerless and unwanted.

You are frustrated
For you too cannot hear.
We are just two people
Shouting underwater.

Honestly, I'm struggling to understand you.

I am crying, again
This depression is taking over.
Maybe you too
Have felt caged in.

Honestly, I hope I don't become like you.

You are trying to do
What's best for me.
But sometimes it seems
Like you hate me for it.
Honestly, with all honesty I love you and respect you,
but honestly, I'm scared of being hurt again.
