Don'T Say My Name

Poem By Triauna Hall

I've always loved my name
But when people say it, I feel the pain
And now things will never be the same
What's going on? Is there something wrong?
I don't know. It's been happening so long
Don't think I enjoy it. I never do
It's scary and sad but it's the truth
You want to know what happens. I can tell you right now
Once I hear my name, my heart begins to pound
It gets so loud, it becomes the only sound
When did it start? I really have no clue
I wouldn't know, that's why I'm asking you
What is it? And why is it there?
I need answers but no one cares
They think I'm lying and brush it off
But when thing get hard, my reaction isn't soft
It doesn't matter. I got me, myself, and I
And I rely on myself as long as I'm alive
Never mind that, what is up with me?
I might figure it out, just wait and see
But I want to know because I'm getting scared
Is there anyone around? Who's willing to share?
Oh well. I guess. I'm alright. I'm good
Imma leave things the same. The way they should
Maybe I was too serious and it's really nothing
But I can't be when it's really something
Who cares anyways, it's nothing to me
Naw. I'm lying. Imma let things be
I can take it but I hate it. I hate the pain
But there will be none if you'd stop calling my name.

A Beautiful

It creeps and crawls
Right up my bedroom wall
It's fast and quick
It's creepy and slick

I Hate That I Hate

I hate the way you treat me
I hate that everything is how you want it to be
I hate all your lies and silly games
I hate how you make them all the same


It must be nice to have so much cash
Have nice houses and a car to flash
Spend and spend, its forever endless
Stay popular and never be friendless

...And Deeper

I'm planning your fate right as I speak
I want a souvenir, something nice I can keep
Don't worry, we will never forget you
But right now, I'm planning something for you


It’s to the point where I believe that I can’t breathe anymore
My eyes deceive me and everything around me isn’t what it seems anymore
It’s frustrating especially when reality feels more like my dreams
Nightmares force through; ripping and tearing at the seams

Love Isn'T...

Love isn’t…
Love isn’t always love letters and love notes
Love isn’t just love poems and love quotes
Love isn’t always at first sight
