I thought of you, Each time I tried something new, And I stopped trying, So I wouldn’t have to. I thought of you, Each time I fucked someone new, And I stopped fucking, So I wouldn’t have to. I thought of you, Every time I drank something new, And I stopped drinking, SoContinue reading “Heart on lockdown”

A blanket of snow Covering a broken heart Won’t make it colder. Wait just a second Did I really just write A legit haiku? Yes. Yes, YES I did About love, as usual Guess I AM a poet.
‘It’s ok.’They tell me.‘You were just brainwashed,by him and the scene he painted.’ And I’ll smile a crooked smileAsking them ‘what brain?’‘I lost that way before him.’‘I’ve always been out of my mind.’ ‘It’s the heart that he stole.’‘And the love that he took,that now leave me feeling empty.’ It’s when their helpful eyes hardenIt’sContinue reading “Crooked smile”
I’ll see words aligned in the saddest of waysReading page after page of fictional historyAnd weep for her loss, his death and their loveBut I’ll never cry for me. I’ll listen to the tragic love-songs of a lifeWith battles the likes of which I’ll never seeAnd weep for their struggle, the battle and their fightButContinue reading “Tears”
In the midst of all this water In the lake of tears I cried I sit here on my island Trying nothing but to hide From what’s falling down around me And the ruins left inside Constantly wishing, hoping, praying That my pain will finally subside. – But as the sky around me darkens AndContinue reading “Stranded”
I want, so muchfor you to see me.But I’m scared you’ll seeright through the layersso carefully constructed to hideall that remains to be seen. Because when you truly see meand discover what lies beyond this faceI’m afraid I’ll find my darkest spacethrough knowing eyeswho’ve seen the wholeof a truth I can’t be facing. Yet it’sContinue reading “Empty.”
Who locked the door on me, Who took away my sun. Who found a way to steal… All that I thought I had become? Who made my world go dark Who holds that smoking gun Who is the one to blame… Wait. I guess I’m the only one.
I let the heat engulf my body,As I slide into the water slow.Slip my head beneath the surface,And ponder what I know… While my oxygen runs out,And my chest begins to burn,Like it has these past few months,When I was forced to learn… That I will be alone,Not just in this porcelain tomb,With my headContinue reading “The burn”
As I wait for the next batch of food to arrive,From the hands of another stranger..I stare at a lonely crumb on the edge of the couch. So gruesomely brokenTorn away from the whole it once was.Just a remnant of a previous self. Useless now. A mere distraction.And just a reason for cleaning up.No longerContinue reading “Cookie crumbles”
Breach the walls
You slipped in unnoticed, Through a tiny crack – in the walls I’d so carefully kept. Took up your space, In a heart unbroken – Unphased by its limitations. Then left chaos in your wake, as you tore down those walls, and left behind a gaping void – in a heart now framed in jaggedContinue reading “Breach the walls”
