so this is it huh?

it hurt so much

to breathe, to think, to laugh

to smile, to worry

to feel

it’s almost like you’ve taken out

all the good parts, the sad parts

leaving me incredibly bare and numb.

i feel restless, raw

open and exposed.

like i have no barriers, no protection

just sitting there with weeping wounds

and a broken heart

brittle as my nails

wrecked and sharply cut

BACK IN TIME

BACK IN TIME

if you could
read my mind
take you
back in time
when just looking
in my eyes
was enough to
make you smile
still opened
doors
danced me
across the floor
talked all
night long
made pancakes
at dawn
sat under
the stars
you strumming
the guitar
sharing
dreams
both wanted
it seemed
now we
don't speak
barely
look at me
neither one
can face
what can't be

Feeling like Butters after the break up (sad yet happy that it happened)

First time,
February was just fine,
although I was walking on thin lines,
never had the doubt that you weren't mine.
Then the first Saturday came,
our sanities were the ones that remain,
something so plain,
brought us joy,
one sentence only comes to mind,
nothing will ever ruin this.

Yeah, the week went by,
never believed that time can fly,
but here we are,
another Saturday,
and you ...

All alone

Today I learnt to cry alone,

Soon I’ll learn to live alone too..

 

Walking through the grass

Running on the fields

Climbing the mountains

You were always a shield...

 

Never imagined a life without you,

Neither in dreams we were away,

In laughter in tears I was with you,

I was with you each night each day,

 

From feeling of hope to thought to love,

Each da...

Too much to fix

I still loved you but I walked away.
I know you still love me, but I'm not comming back.
You still try to reach me, I know you do.
Every text you send I read, never ending your silent plead.

I know you're hurting I'm too,
but I know I can't be with you.
You were my everything I hope you know.
now I can't give you roses of red colour.

I was hurting, my heart was bleeding,
I didn't let ...

Twelve

Twelve years and you still don't get it. I crossed that bridge packed my bags and hit it. No more tears I left my fears lying on the floor. I quit, I’m leaving and I ain’t coming back no more.
Sitting in a silent cave losing me while giving you one last save.
While I was trying to be what you needed, you started a journey and couldn’t complete it.
Walking around in the madness, you did you, and let m...

Daddy Issues

You know at first anytime I showed you vulnerability and affection I felt weak ,then I realized that I am a woman and vulnerability and love was my super powers . So then I realized that abandonment and not feeling good enough, and seeking for approval, and love ,became the norm when dealing with you and it felt so familiar bc it was .Daddy issues of my own ,hoping you can save me from them ,looki...

Spit of Life

Do you remember how we used to savour the pins and needles on our tongues?

Do you remember how we used to bite into bitterness?

lick the spit of life

I was turned on by brokenness

maybe it’s cliche

that I craved pain

swallowing broken bottles

it's lined my pockets

it's swollen my stomach

Do you remember when we saw ‘sad’ as just another crayon

to colour ourselves in w...

Also for J

Baffled, mystified, perplexed and confused,

my darling I have lost my muse,

and at what cost? 

 Is it worth a tormented soul

just to be kept in your control

 I jump when you say

and ask you how high on the way,

quickly obey

every command you convey 

I grant wishes in three;

falling down on my knees

to please all your needs

as you stomp on my heart

Drawn and q...

Volcano

I want to say all of the beautiful sweet kind things 

I want to lay my heart on yours and feel our rhythms unite 

I know this terrifies you 

I know I terrify you 

My sweet love 

When I am with you I gaze upon you with such delight 

Your movements excite my eyes 

I can't imagine a more joyous experience than to kiss your mouth 

To feel your breath on my neck 

To hold your...

She

She, 

 is not yet an old soul. Such apprenticeship has not yet begun.

Studiously she watches as you cite your second hand wisdom. 

Bested by her innocence,  such familiar nostalgia withers like the thick layer of dust it hides beneath.

Shaken and bruised like brine against an ice cube,  the vermouth of your ideals is poured into an ill fitting glass.

Left feeling dirty you turn to d...

Lights

The moon glows in the twilight night
The sun shines during the luminous day
The moon can’t glow without the sunlight
The sun can’t shine without the moon’s darkness

I wish you’d understand the philosophy 
There’s no me without you
You’re the oxygen in the air
The reason why I breathe

The days we spent together
The hours we wasted together
The minutes we counted together
The seconds we l...

After A Break Up

After a breakup, pain may linger with you a while, 

but one morning you will wake once more with a smile,

Until that time comes write notes to throw away,

notes that hold your pain, to leave you free one day,

 

There's no clock with the means to predict the date,

don't let heartbreak turn love over to the icy grip of hate,

for positive feelings are those we all seek in our liv...

DOORMAT

Call me the doormat,

The infestation of rats,

The ‘oh she ain’t all that’,

Call the kettle black!

 

Call me the diva, the princess, the moan bag,

The emotional one, oh isn’t it sad?

The hot head who can only nag nag nag,

That period trainwreck – a handful for a lad.

 

Call me whatever deflects most from what reflects

When you stand by the mirror and boast,

When ...

Not mine

Different stories 

Different people

haven't you heard of me?

I've heard of you though..

I've seen you smile and cry.

But it seems like you haven't noticed me.

I was there long before.

I was there when you needed held.

I hold your hand in the dark.

But its been so long.

Distance tore us apart.

But it's sad how it came back together.

And now I'm in holding reach.

Tunnels

Tunnelling in the dirt below my feet
I've been digging here all week
carving this hollow so deep
today, I hit bone

This is heavier work than I imagined
surveyed the ground from beyond the fence
And we both agreed that this was right
but now the toil is breaking me apart

As a new day rises
I'm bawling in the shower
never knew I could feel this pain
with the taps turned up to ten
never knew this hurt was in me

Berlin Wall

Berlin Wall

 

When we first chatted over cake and tea

You told me you spent your days

In front of PC, saving the world from itself

 

But you failed to mention

You had a PhD in brick layering trade

 

As time passed we drank less tea with even fewer pleasantries

You built your personal Berlin Wall

Injected cracks with grouting

Mixed with a single gr...

Lost

A face of steel is easy 
When hidden behind.
Lost in false hope,
Drowning under memories
That my shoulders cannot hold;
They buckle in sharp flaws.
Watch me break at dawn
And vanish into dust.
My soul entrenched
Under a cotton shroud,
Unable to rise.
I will never again stand 
So boldly.
Time, the only healer,
Has stopped,
And I am lost
In forgotten thoughts
As hopelessness ensnares.
And in the dyi...

To dare is to do,                              I don’t do dares,

So I dare you to,                             Give me a truth,

Whisper to me,                                Honestly, truthfully,

‘I love you’.                                     I don’t love you.

Beauty is,                                        I’ve no beauty,

As beauty does,                          ...

Heartbreaker

I saw her heart break yesterday

the watchful face of late

eyes upturned

smile that had only known sunshine

and said in words

careful and rounded

the news that he would not be coming home

and saw

the instant

stop-release claymation

trembling of the tiny chin

the mouth turned square and agonised

in an eternal instant of distress

I heard the clic...

Pull Apart The Perfect Nest

So then, stick by stick
tonight we tear off strip after strip
the newest feathers first
then the older twigs and vines
with each one
my heart drops
until there's nothing left
and nowhere lower
just empty branches
where our sweet home once was

Inch by inch
we pack and divide the moss
all the soft things we've collected
years of careful, loving selection
pecking them away, each and e...

Through the corner of my eye

I can see it all falling apart

it's entirely his call

yet it seems it was on the cards

right from the very start

it's like I'm staring through a window that

I can't get in,

her lips touch his, her hand on his skin

I want to beg them to stop

except neither can hear me

the sight chills me to the bone but
