Pedals and thorns

The rose in all her beauty Laid there Life less Tarnished pedal After pedal Stale like her emotions One by one You picked them up Careful not to break them For you understood how fragile they were When you watered her You also watered your thorns Ready for blood Ready to defend The beauty that…

Dear woman,

I know you try You stick around Holding on to hope Maybe today Maybe today He’ll feel bad for you He’ll see the woman you’ve been He’ll see the woman he claims to love But your worth…. Is not defined by his words Your worth…. Does not reside in the palm of his hands Your…

Smoking gun.

I heard the laughs I missed the joke Skipped in line Tripped over my foot John Doe She fell on her face Not my bed Not my mess I did the time I crawled out safe He’s trying to run He’s trying to hide But karma is never late He missed the finally He missed…

Eulogy.

Let’s backtrack for a second I’ll close my eyes Take me back Way back when Take me to that day I’d change course I’d undo, what’s done Miss the steps, that led to you I’m doing time I’m wasting space We were never meant to be My friend denial She lied to me Waiting to…

Persona

He said I have a blank lookThat my eyes were darkThey told storiesUnwillingly gave me awayHe didn't know My walls got tallerAs I got smallerThe cells of my body hold onMemory is a bitchPain body is all I knowWalked through the stormAnd I barely felt a thingPins and needles Am I still alive?I feel numb…

The chase

Pen to story Pencil to sketch Between the lines Between the shading  You stood there tall as ever Time defied you Time cursed you You stood there chin up Stripped to the core  Down to your essence  Dead weight lifted  Skeletons buried  Demons possessed by me Whose that girl? They ask… The way she moves…

So this is betrayal.

I’m tossing and turning Making excuses for you But I saw the proof I knew the answer But I asked the question You lied… And I pretended to be okay I was there I went to that place  You weren’t there Words fall flat Land me right on my face I was good to you …

Masterpiece 

Last night I tried to draw you I tried to shade in all my favorite parts of you I thought about drawing myself next to you I wondered how we might look together Would your smile compliment mine? What if I drew your arms around my waist? Would I look safe? I wish you had…

He taught me.

He taught me, never to trust myself Second guessing became second nature He taught me, that his rejection was nothing Minimal to that of the world He taught me loneliness, with him at my side physically there, mentally long gone He taught me, that I wasn’t good enough on to the next, or back to…

Just strangers.
