People Have Stopped Reading My Poems

I guess people are scared,

To read what I write about them.

That’s why when they know me,

They stop reading the poems.

They’re scared to know,

The raw, unfiltered thoughts,

The adjectives I use for them,

The metaphors they get attached with.

They’re scared to know,

How genuine the happiness is,

Or how bad the fight was,

How heartbroken they’ve left me.

Specially then,

They stop reading the poems,

Because a damsel is hard to handle,

Although the distress is their own giving.
