POEM| Out of My Control

My head is spinning
and I can’t control it

Looking for my voice
but I can’t seem to find it

In the line of fire
and I can’t seem to avoid it 

Tears well up in my eyes
and I try to hide it

My heart is racing
and I can’t slow it

I’m being hurt by the one I love
and I can’t believe it 

I wait for an apology
but I don’t think I’m getting it 

So I pray for the day to be over quickly
so I can bury the memory till I forget it

Mariam Shittu

Don’t suffer in silence, speak up!
