Dumped On #Poetry

I hate feeling
Dumped on
Someone else’s
Negative emotions
I’m an easy target
Usually compliant
Calm and collected
Stuffing their garbage
Down my throat
Deep in my repository
For other people’s trash
Until I vomit it all up
One day
Resentment never sits well
In my stomach

  1. Oh wow….this is so accurate on so many levels for me haha Feeling like a receptacle of other people’s dirty laundry…..The other side to being a listening ear; you don’t just get the good, you get the bad mixed in too.
