Once More, But Never Again

weary beyond grand words
lost and I canít find letters
someone come group them
together for me
and arrange them
precisely on my paper
my midnight eyes gripping
filled to the absolute brim
with unshed tears frozen
to the last shred of dignity
I can find within
the last piece of me
of my origin, of who I am
and how I came to be
I am so desperate to hang on
but my white knuckled approach
has left me with broken
fingers and a bruised head
cracks inside my heart
patched precariously
with simple clear tape
the kind that doesnít stick
old and covered in detritus
from the bottom of my bag
whatever I am made of
it leaves a putrid taste
in your already bitter mouth
but Iíve never been sweeter
than I was when I loved you
 
tired of playing
so dumb
so you can feel
so smart
exhausted with you
being enraged with me
and the space I dare
occupy
 
Iím even bigger on the inside
if you could imagine
such a thing
the whole of the cosmos resides
within my frailty
intertwined with my fears
counting into the hundreds
these days
youíve hated me from the moment
this ill-fitting soul was placed
into this awkward body
I told myself it was in reserve
for all the someone elses †  
someones who had wronged you
I longed for the day youíd bestow
that precious all-the-way love
upon my confused and crowded head
despite what you think about me
that love is the only thing of yours
I ever coveted
†  
but you should know
I am an empath goddess
you audacious, silly girl
albeit, one not many believe in
my footing on the gilded path
was sidelined by your
insatiable need to cage me
tame me, maim me
keep my honeyed lips
my curvy hips
my witty quips
muted so your insecurity
could crawl itís fragile spirit
inside my mouth and hide
until all the words I spoke
were antique mirrors
instead of open windows
†  
disrobed of my outer shell
my origin story erased
you are not my keeper
and I am no longer yours
bet your ass we both knew my role
and the one you assumed was yours
while you pretended and I denied
my five year-old naÔvetť
wanted the lies I told myself
to sprout legs and run free
Iíll get out the glue this time
spackle this fragile bitchís heart
back together once more
but never again
†  
Iíll smooth it all over
so youíll never see the fault lines
Iíll hide them deep on the inside
with the rest you gave me
and Iíll find my footing
sure as shit I will
and when my frayed wings
have returned to my aching back
Iíll leave you in your acrid stench
your humid swamp of veiled begrudging
of conditional love, provisional hovering
and fly the fuck out of here
like the hot-mess demon
rebellious wanton heathen
youíve always believed me to be
with my rusted, crooked halo  
Iíll soar far above and beyond you
then we can both begin yet again
by telling ourselves the truth

Waving Goodbye

It's been a nice six years
You and I
Our desert rides
Our crazy jokes
What a shame it had to go
I'm still clinging onto false hope
I guess I'm to blame
If you say so
I'm a fucking asshole
So the story goes
It's been a nice six years
You and I
Blow me kisses
I'm waving goodbye

Seven All Alone

 

Within the depths of an ore filled grave away from life and light.
Six other souls toil with me from days break to early night.
Some speak of want some talk of love others long in ways between.
Jealously kept are seven secrets and hid well are desired dreams.
Tíwas a cursed blessing granted when first we saw the madden fair.
Our loneliness came beautifully taken refuge in our lair.
Of her she changed house to home a prison none could flee.
Punished with her velvet touch all craved submissively.
The air was filled with her scent and the music of her voice.
Sought for her attention each wished to be her only choice.
In a fruit delivered came destinies answer to fates silent call.
At rest dwelled a beauty pure perched atop deathís eternal wall.
I sadly gazed as a single kiss awoke her soul to him.
Embraced in passion they rose together with the effort of a whim.
In the darkness of a carved out cave seven mine for precious ore.
Ever after is there ending for a love theyíll have no more.

Blindsided

I wish that I could have seen your eyes, your face
Or something else to see instead of reading your
Text that came through that dark night on my cell
Phone. I was always trying to find my favorite place
To go as I had a good or bad day. I want to explore
The whole world with you by my side, but I fell
For you before the world had time to fully catch
Up. I was blindsided by the trust and love I gave,
But most of all I was blindsided by the fact you, out
Of all the people in this world who knew to snatch
Up my worries would bring them back. I forgave
You although I was at fault for ignoring the doubt
And every red flag. In the end it hurt me more than
You because while you left unscathed and unhurt
I let the pain take control. I was completely hurting,
More than you will ever truly know and I just ran
As far as I could because staying felt like a dessert
With no oxygen. You were the expert at skirting.

Behearted

All I could see was destruction.
The hole you left in my heart, gaping.
Was this idea of your construction?
To add desolation with no hope of escaping.

You claim to have lost your love for a while.
If that is true, then why did you remain?
Was you leaving me for another an example of your guile?
After all this was not the first time you hurt another for your personal gain.

You have left, but your memory will stay.
Your image forever engraved into my brain.
How I wish your presence upon my mind would go away.
After all your memory is nothing more than a stain.

You tugged and you tugged, on my heart with a string.
You should have know it takes more to de throne a king.

Regretful

It's sad
The way you acted
You laughed
Smiled
Cheered
But now
That you suffer a similar fate
I do not feel pride
Boast
Hold hate
You stand where I once did
Heart broken
Regretful
Defeated
And for myself
I no longer know
Who I am
Nor can I
Recall my own shadow

Trapped

Determination written all over her face

Termination is finally between the bond we swore

To stick till infinity

With finality she now rabbles

Tears storm her pretty face

Darkness clouds her angelic nature


She is trapped

Between goodbye and staying

She swore never to leave

Yet swore to not stay

If stray ever became one with me

I had not strayed

But stray held me captive

I had not gone straying

Yet stray entrapped me

Sending her younger sister my way

Attire hugging her volumptous figure tightly

Cleavage staring me in the eye

Invitingly

Hips threatening to escape

Calling me to their rescue

Eyes big,round and innocent

Begging me,daring me

To venture and explore

Lips full,moist, slightly parted

Not speaking but my name curved on them

Warning signals ringing inside me

When I had shut eyes to her

Thoughts of u preoccupying,flooding in my mind

But when i opened them again

There she was

Somehow in my arms

Resistance left me

Mind left soon after

Reason followed in hot persuit

And I assumed her you,you her

Rode into the heavens

Her you..you her

Found myself ensnared

You see

No love spoken of

Her there, you in mind

Explanation presented

Response comes

At the sound of her steps, fading away

Not a word spoken

CHALLENGES OF LOVING YOU

As we go through rough times I don't need the stress of being accuse of cheating on you for all I ever did was love you unconditionally with love honor and respect but I see that wasn't, enough to prove my real love that I have for only you but you know what they say if you continue to accuse someone then it is you who has been cheating on them as you've been creeping in the darkness but whatever is done in the dark always comes to the light.   † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
†† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †  
For I thought you knew and understood of the love lost and gone and were I have been and gone through my life experiences of a broken heart and soul for that is not me for I still carry my unseen scars of the mental and emotional abuse, I had to endure at the hands of loving someone unconditional who didn't deserve my love at all for I thought you were suppose to be my peace not my misery of hurt with pain leaving tears falling down my face as I try to hide my shame of my deepness that can be seen within my eyes. † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
†† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †  
For how can you not see the love that I have for you in the depth of my heart and spiritual soul for how can you not see the hurt in my eyes with each word you shout out to me cutting me so deep till I bleed, for how can you ever believe that I would do to you what has been done to me out of viciousness hitting me like a slab of granite rock beating down on my heart shattering my inner soul into tiny little pieces of broken stones. † † † †  
†† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †  
For you cant denie that you don't see or feel the love I have within my heart soul and spirit for not once have I ever gave you a reason to feel insecurities about how much I want to love only you, nor did I come with illusions of lies nor disguise my true inner feelings of my heart of my true potential of loving only you from my mind heart and soul but now you got me going in circles trying to figure out how can we get back to loving one another and being each others peace of mind and heart and soul.

She was not
to blame
the blame is mine
to claim
i let her  
slide under
my skin
into my heart
with my eyes  
open wide
with my mind
on wishful thinking
dream time
as she sucked me dry
an emotional wasteland
she left behind
but as they say
life
will find a way
so my feelings
will learn
to grow again
one day

She wasn't to blame
the blame is mine
the signs were there
i refused to see
i didn't look
behind the scenes
behind her smile
behind her eyes
behind the walls
she hides behind
and for that
i pay the price
a broken heart
a fractured voice
a river of tears
when i remember  
the lonely fears
i thought  

i'd  left behind

In every moment of everyday

Sitting alone in a car park
Late at night
Rain on the windows
The droplets glistening
A soft glow of streetlights
A muted fuzz in the air
These thoughts plague me

You were it to me
The only thing I saw
But when I was close to you
I felt alone

I was alone because you did not understand or care
You kept demanding MORE
But youíd already taken everything
What was left?
My personality withered away under your pressure

What is there left to say
When you ripped apart my insides
Destroying everything I am
Causing pain that will haunt me for the rest of my life

Thereís nothing to say
Thereís nothing that will make the hurt go away
When you were here youíd cut through me everyday
A constant headache demanding appeasement
Youíd wear me down and take what you wanted

But it wasnít enough
It was never enough
You always had to have more
More, more, more
It didnít matter the cost
My life, my soul, my future
You had to have it all

My heart throbbing violently
You took it all
Now youíre gone
And I sit alone in desolate car parks
Humming that our youth is almost gone
Thinking about everything that went wrong

Did you remember that it was my birthday
Yesterday?
Youíve been gone for so long
And in every moment of everyday you taint my life
A shadow that bleeds
through the days
Painting the world black and grey

Betrayal

My Father once told me † † † †
the biggest lesson in Life
is not to betray yourself † † † † †  
in the midst of betrayal†
† † † † †  
† † † † † †
For the longest time † † † † † †
I wasn't sure what he meant; † † † † †  
despite asking † † † † †  
he wouldn't provide examples † † † † † †
† † † † † †
Years past, and one day
In high school a "friend" † † † † †  
betrayed a confidence; † † † † † †
† † † † † †
she violated my trust- † † † † † †
I struck back, spilled my guts;† † † † † †
revealed everything
she'd confided in me with † † † † † †
† † † † † †
I thought, "All's fair in revenge!" † † † † †  
But I was wrong, and then some† † † † † †
† † † † † †
In growth we're given the syllabus † † † † † †
before the test to see if we've learned; † † † † †  
it will determine if we repeat the class † † † † †  
† † † † † †
Sometimes years fan † † † † † †
between incidences† † † † † †
others, weeks or minutes † † † †  
† † † † † †
It's always when we think
we've risen above, that the pop quiz
will hit the desk † † † † † †
at any given hour of the day † † †

I'll tell you what I do know now:  † †  
† † † † † †
I hadn't betrayed my "friend" † † † † †  
I'd betrayed myself † † † † † †  
† † † † † †
It took one time † † † † †  
waking up with the enemy † † † † †  
to realize that hard truth † † † † † †
† † † † † †
So, continue to stab me with your † † † † † †
sharpest knife of vitriolic gossip
behind my back-I learned young † † † † † †
what my Father meant; † † † † † †
† † † † † †
And while I've slipped, I'll be damned † † † † †  
if I repeat that class; † † †  
† † † †
Your secrets are safe†
with me-and we both know
you have plenty
~ † † † † † †

Bird

He was fucking him?!  
She started laughing at her husband like he was a comic
he choked her till she stopped
breathing into her lungs †
couldn't bear the itching truth anymore that she never loved him †
looking into her eyes as she walked in and saw them †
he was caught by surprise when she started laughing like a child †
then the surprise turned to rage †
he couldn't make her feel betrayed †
he couldn't make her feel anything †
the last time he fucked her, cat was made †
he was curiously engorged with furor †
he wanted her to feel †
how she made him feel for the last faded years †
and in that split second, he was a puppet to the devil †
the love couldn't stop the once sealed up core hatred †
releasing it in a single moment †
her eyelids opened wide, her face was blood shot red †
she stared at him with a suffocating voice †
but she didn't struggle †
as if this was better than the life she was living †
now in a freezer with her eyes still open †
her coldness within matching her skin †
she despised her teenage daughter †
she saw her as her stolen youth was found on her †
she saw him as nothing †
her husband noticed it but he said nothing †
she didn't love him, both knew that and they told kat †
Kat was fucking the front door neighbor †
and he was caught fucking her father.
