Dont deserve this ghost, but I hope she stays.
Nothing more than a resilient woman
with sad eyes, an empty heart,
and chains that bind her
to the haunting darkness
that’s made a home
in her own mind
You didn’t lose love, it’s still here. It still burns brighter than all the stars in the galaxy. Even on the darkest of nights – it’s still there.
“I’m giving up,” she finally cried.
But, still, she tucked the only key to her heart right there under the welcome mat – nestled safely for if her lover were to someday return. To someday come back home.
hundreds of red rose petals and all the reasons I’ll always love you, set ablaze and scattered like ashes lost in the wind.
My love for you is endless.
A labyrinth I work my way through,
with no desire for an exit.
It settles into my bones,
and I spend my days wandering,
exploring all the new and profound pieces of you.
I’m drowning over and over,
and still praying the tide
will bring me back to you.
just like the candle
my flames danced vibrantly
but you were quick to blow me out
Together we bleed, we burn, and we bloom.
Unfurling our hidden wounds together after midnight.
And with each sip of red wine that seeps down my throat, the thoughts rattling around my head transition into a hum of white noise.
You know what she’s capable of, she’s a self-proclaimed hurricane.
She’ll tear you apart, rip you limb from limb.
Leave you broken, shattered.
You know she’ll ruin you.
But you’ll let her do it anyway.
The rain came, watering the flowers.
Its roots are still suffocating under the soil, but at least it’s nourishing.
It isn’t dying today.
I’m like a flower. Pretty to look at, admired for its outward appearance. But underneath, my roots are a tangled mess – suffocating under layers of soil, unable to breathe. Withering away with each day that passes as it grows weaker and crumbles.
I didn’t know what it felt like
To get lost in a forest
Until my eyes met yours
And then I learned how strong the pull of the tide was
As I found buried treasure
Drowning deep in your ocean eyes
And then I saw your eyes,
An intricate blend of honey and chestnut.
They reflected the stars, mapped out the galaxy
And gave a whole new meaning to the word, gold.
Each color, so unique
So hypnotic in its own way
Capable of pulling me in…
It’s no surprise, I took the bait
Grabbed on and let you pull me in
Even though I know how this all goes.
In I go, as you reel me in, drawing me closer and closer.
I hoped we’d make it this time,
But you just catch and release.
Like you always do.
You drop me back into the sea just before I’m about to surface,
Leaving me treading around, awaiting your next baited line.
I should know better, I should be smarter after all this time.
But I’ll still wait for the hook to drop back down into the water,
So I can latch on tightly once again.
Even though I know you’ll just release me once more.
