Tears Of A Broken Soul

My heart ache as you break me away
You walk out on me
Left without having any words to say

My love had expire
Sour like apples
In my feelings
I felt like i'm going to be sick


Tears falling down my face
My heart is broken
This hate I cannot erase
Without even having any words to be spoken

Tears of a broken soul
This pain doesn't seem to subside
With the true emotions you always try to hide
There is nothing left to do
But die from the tears of a broken soul

I thought love suppose to be true
This was all a lie
I thought this was meant to be
Everytime I look in the mirror I see me

Pain In My Heart

Pain In My Heart
You say that love me
You tell me this but you don't show it
When I was broke without a dime
You treated me like shit
But since I done came up
Everything change and still my good aint enough
Stood by you when you was sick
Laying in a hospital bed
Praying for you to get well
Where everybody else at
That said they had your back
Who said that they love you
But not here to prove it
Letting go of this pain in my heart
I was the one who cry myself to sleep
Thinking about you
I am out here grindin each and everyday making my dreams come true
And that is the thanks I get
Take a look at me now
I didn't ask nobody for nothing
I earn it by working hard
Paying for these scars
The wounds will heal
And the blemishes will fade away
Letting go of this pain in my heart

labyrinths ~ abstract love letters unsent [i]

{iii} voidness:
i have genuflected. in places of prayer, sung bhajans at
the cardinal points but found no religion, no succor for
my hurt in psalms.
& God was somewhere in your face, some particle of it
that spoke of egolessness.

{ii} junction:
i thought my skin
would tear away
at the places
we were joined.

{i} mouths:
the lip was narrowest at the point where we walked
side by side. i wish i could tell you the view was unobscured
by my perspective, by the impermanence of us or the angle
of the sun when it kissed lviv's skyline goodnight; i was
too far from pure soil. like that shoe; forgotten next to white filters
haloed in dior red. i thought i could leave the parts of me
that love you in a place i called home; but they followed.
there was perhaps, something poetic in that forlorn sight,
my stiletto, my cigarettes, my heart, discarded on rusted tin. now,
i miss that shoe & the shell casings by the ocean.

poet Anonymous

to the birds in your hair

iii.
i birth another fragmented creation
into the pith of a pomegranate
& seal its stasis with seminal fluid.
sepia seeds & your leavings bloom
from my marrow, sprouting vine & leaf
that never bear fruit

ii.
you filled the eyeless face
with millstones & milliseconds
& flyaway shards of glass
hammered them bone deep, soul shallow
when i spooned the skin you'd shed

i.
i thought we were
forged in fire
but you were all the suns
on all the worlds

The break up song

she doesn't see the sky
for the tears in her eyes
shining sun shimmers her visions
beyond her mind, crystal clear

night is a starkness of loneliness
days a fixed smile of pretending
she wants to live or leave
just be away, a moth away from fire

then she sees his smiling face
within the curtain of her eyelids
and she wants to do it all over again
she wants to feel the love again

too many times too much
she looks at her wounds
healed on her arms
dripping in her heart.

tonight

† †
† † †
here I am, once again alone in my bed † †  
time-locked at midnight, every minute revolving † †  
turning disappointment † †  
over and over, leaving me † †  
frayed and knotted † †  
within an endless loop of loneliness † †  
† † †
† † †
and without a book † †  
† † †
† † †
I wish I'd borrowed † †  
something light † †  
to read about young love † †  
with smiles in their eyes † †  
where a simple glance
promises nothing more than fresh breath
and a soft kiss to smuggle back to bed † †  
† † †
† † †
secrets held in palms † †  
whispers shared under sheets † †  
losing track of time, caught in conversations † †  
sliding closer and closer † †  
where a well-loved mattress should † †  
hold memory † † †
† † †
† † †
an indent from good times † † †
traps lovers in the middle † †  
wrapped in each otherís arms † †  
† † †
† † †
here I am, accepting my marriage is † †  
broken, possibly broken beyond repair † †  
desperately waiting for † †  
my husband † †  
my friend † †  
to come back to me † †  
to take me in his arms † †  
to find the hurt in my eyes † †  
† † †
† † †
I wish my words could † †  
drift from my heart † †  
fall into his hands † †  
where he could make my sadness write † †  
laid out in our bed † †  
entwined in beautiful poetry † †  
so we can share the pain † †  
and shine † †  
† † †
† † †
out from this loneliness † †

RIB BONE

Hard earth cracked by the memory of rain
Sowed the seed but did not know the flower
Carefully picked as church flowers

Careful

Why are you weeping
A million tears won't fill this hole
The only cure for loss is life

But the bed's grown cold and my heart groans
Packed my pulmonary trunk fit to burst
From the bondage of my rib bones
Nothing matters now you've gone
Not even that I miss you or the scent of you
Or your laugh half caught in other's laughs
Nothing really matters gone is gone

Hurts like when a fist hurts
Yours on my jaw bone mine on yours
Or your boot in my back that leaves you winded
I was being you and you me
Hey no hard feelings have a cup of tea

I pray for those moments joy and pain free
When we gather in ourselves again
And begin again
It's easier to believe you were never here
Than to believe you've gone

All's fine
We will be fine
Everything shall be

BREL

If you can not forgive me
Then forget all but not me
Forget even what you have to forgive

I will be your tattoo
I will be your lips ruby
The moon on dark nights
Reflecting your Sun

She planted me and I grew tall
Green leaves to the heavens
But I chose to go down
Become coal
And coal burns and coal chokes
This karma I can not unmake
To become Tree
Again
Karma is Dharma
My lesson is my choice
I accept the lesson of the Tree
Accept the pressure of the earth
Accept the pressure beneath the mountain
To become diamond

Leave your head on my shoulder
For there will be dark nights
I'll hold you through the dark nights
So you don't have to leave

Leave without love
If you leave who shall love you
Who will kneel down
And sing you your song

Sunset Kite

Someone spoke
Secretly
Surrounded by the senses
I answered
Thoroughly

Embodied angels
Nameless numbers
Of devils and demons
Smiling at me

Embryo of echo
Here I live, here I die
And in my weakness
I suffer, I cry

Temple of time
Here I have arrived
Journeying
This life of mine

I heard a voice
So clear
You are
The only one here

The sentence fell
To the ground
A hollow sound
Lost and found

I heard the clouds
Drift by
Endless space
Endless sky

Relics

I lay in the casket of your broken heart
The relic rain sang a song of solitude
Moonlight sailed the stolen sea
Sailed the ovary of blinding stars
Their light purified me

There Is No Such Thing As Love

He was there for me when my first tear fell
He wiped it away.
I wasn't sure of myself,
I wasn't sure of anything,
But I felt like giving him a chance.
I put my heart in his hands as I trusted him every step of the way.
I followed him blindly while hoping he will be my real Prince Charming,
I guess I must be a stupid fool who will always be left with a barefoot waiting alone.

There is no such thing as happy endings,
There is no such thing as perfect fairy tales,
There is no such thing as a knight in shining armor,
There is no such thing as perfect romance,
There is no such thing as love.

When you fall in love you fall hoping there will be someone there to catch you,
Well every time I fell I only fell to hit the concrete ground.
Falling down on my face like an idiot wishing if I could I would rewind time and do everything all over again, but where would the fun be in that right?.
I only wanted love,
I only wanted joy,
I only want to feel alive for a change.
So tell me what's the shame in all of that?.
Can't I be happy for once in my life?.

There is no such thing as happy endings,
There is no such thing as perfect fairy tales,
There is no such thing as a knight in shining armor,
There is no such thing as perfect romance,
There is no such thing as love.

When you told me you loved me I felt like a child on it's birthday,
I believed you loved me,
I wasn't second guessing you nor was I worried that you didn't love me.
I felt like I was for once complete.
But you didn't really feel the same way did you?.
'Cause now I pay the price for being so dumb and naÔve for believing I mattered to you let alone to anyone I come across.
So now I'll keep in mind for next time that I'm incapable of feeling love.

There is no such thing as happy endings,
There is no such thing as perfect fairy tales,
There is no such thing as a knight in shining armor,
There is no such thing as perfect romance,
There is no such thing as love.

I'll Always Love You

Seems so surreal that this is actually real

Everything feels so different now and I don't know how to comprehend with this, but I'll be alright.

I know this may not feel like the end and trust me I can't believe it is, but it is also the beginning for us

Yesterday maybe gone and today we may not be together,

We may not be with each other, but I'll always keep you here in my memory

I'll always remember everything you've done for me,

I will never forget who you were to me,

I'll always love you.

It's so hard to say goodbye when part of me wants to stay while the other side of me is
telling me to leave

I know what's best for me and it's not easy for me to just get up and walk away when I
know letting go of you is the hardest thing I have to do.

Believe me when I say I really do love you I just don't want us to hurt anymore so I think it's time to move on.

Yesterday maybe gone and today we may not be together,

We may not be with each other, but I'll always keep you here in my memory

I'll always remember everything you've done for me,

I will never forget who you were to me,

I'll always love you.

Everyday, every second I'll never stop missing you

Every night, I'll never stop praying for you

Every hour, I'll be thinking about you

And every moment I'll always love you.

Yesterday maybe gone and today we may not be together,

We may not be with each other, but I'll always keep you here in my memory

I'll always remember everything you've done for me,

I will never forget who you were to me,

I'll always love you.

Broken Again

Darling, you were not there to catch the first tear
Or the ones to follow afterwards. Darling, I just
Somehow knew that despite everything the fear

Was bigger that you were not the one.  The trust
Has been long gone. I did not know who or what
Was going to come after you. Everything bust

Apart at the seams. You only knew the shortcut
To my heart, but did not want to go around or
The long way. I should have listened to my gut

More because darling, that open and wide door
Was too good to be true. You cut everything
That was already broken on the same floor.

Darling, you are untying the same string
And trying to set it all free only to keep reeling
Me back in. Darling, go ahead. You should bring

The pain and misery because you keep stealing
My happiness. You keep taking more and
More because I am used to it. I try to keep healing

The same scars and wounds, but the rough sand
Keeps getting in the way. Everything is spinning.
You are letting me drown while you only stand

And watch it all like a spectator. You keep winning,
But darling, I no longer care. Darling, this is no
Longer the end, but the middle and beginning.
