stop pretending that the air between us is clear

the air is fogged up from the fire you forced me to stand in

by pretending to love me

while you were with her


--the smoke is still suffocating me

This poem is short, yet so powerful. I love the emotion and story behind it, I think many people will be able to relate with this. There is so much that isn't said openly that the reader still takes away from your writing, which shows talent. I love this piece!
