To The Man Who Foiled Her

I watch her lie away for countless nights gawking at our ceiling, I watch her become the shadow of the woman she was, I hear her scream through her dreams and I hear her cry through her eyes. What you wanted to be a drunken mistake was taken a bit far when he plunged into…

Cry. Sleep. Wake up. Function.

Cry. Sleep. Wake up. Function. Cry. Sleep. Wake up. Function. Cry. Sleep. Wake up. Function. Cry. Sleep. Wake up. Function. Cry. Sleep. Wake up. Function. Repeat. Alone in a room stranger than the delivery guy, bleeding through a thousand cuts, fighting your insecurities. You are better than this, You are better than them. Better than…

You.

Unable to sleep you turn over Swipe up your phone and open your contacts Your brother is online Won’t do Your best friend is online Won’t do He is online Hell no You switch off the data Go back to sleep Crying into the pillow Over matters No one cares about The next day you…

Last

I wake up screaming, too alone, too sad, too wild. I am loud, impolite, rude, stubborn. I am vile, toxic, brutal and begone. I screech and howl and yelp and wail. I cry over the weekend that I spent dreaming about an alternate universe where everything made sense and I was loved and I was…

Dear A

Dear A, I have tried and failed for four years now to forget the storm you made me feel. I have tried to move on, but. I still remember it like it was yesterday when I saw your tall silhouette for the first time. I remember it was the first rain of the year. I…

Lost

You are humming away ~Let’s stay together I, I’m I’m so in love with you Whatever you want to do Is all right with me~ You purse your lips around the Montecristo number 3, too lost to remember the time, you smile and my heart takes a leap, you open your eyes and move closer…

A Relationship We Never Had

I’m hung on this idea of a relationship that we never had or never could have and I’m so happy in my alternate universe that I do not or cannot afford to go there again and try once more to be what I think we were for I’m almost certain it was all in my…

Love.

I’m a girl hopeless in love with the idea of love so much so that it has made it impossible for me to be in love. I’m a girl fiddling with her hair while he talks of how his mother mentioned me the other day, too embarrassed or maybe just sad to admit that I…

Where Is This Picture Perfect Love You Talk About?

Where is this picture perfect love that you talk about as if describing a gallantry of emotions that has taken over every inch of the world. I have waited patiently for my turn and searched over and over again, I have searched high and low for that love that breaks through the bubble that I…
