That vacant look in your eyes.
Anger rippled off of you.
Is choking me.
I still remember,
The taste of your goodbye-
No longer sweet.
My throat constricted,
Like a knot being tied.
Threatened to break,
Behind my eyes.
I still remember,
The sound of the door,
Slamming against the frame.
Your silhouette slipped off,
Into the starkness of night.
Only your goodbye,
As tears on my pillow.
Your scent has faded with time,
I miss you.

But it was made of promises, and angels
That were too fragile to hold the weight of our sins.
You were my goddess, on a throne made of dreams.
Which you were probably
They didn't glimmer and shine
like the diamonds decorating your rings.
They were the hopes of a man
So madly in love, but you poured poison into his heart
And so he rotted, each time you gifted him with a kiss.

SeaOn the vehement cerulean waters did she rely,Sea1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's abysmal mouth did gape and depth belie,
Perchance, bear she the bleeding stigma of her negligence?
Flail above the dark does she, in vain attempt to recompense.
Upon the crashing waves she toils, to grant her lungs reprieve,
To fight the waves, her purpose is, and ride meandering steed,
The soft sea yawns, and thrash her to and fro,
Ambivalent, serene, and black below.
Rhythmically, haplessly, she accedes to the crest,
And upon horizon peers for ephemeral rest,
hopelessly, helplessly, she drifts with all her intensity,
her fortitude is glass beneath an anvil's density.
Again and again, the tide mercilessly bashed,
for avail she bewailed, though still the sea slashed,
the odor of the salt stinging her nose,
yet with every single plea had the waves arose.
Alas few listen to her exhausted cries,
as most aim for her miserable demise,
oh, if only they held remorse in their eyes,
she could only peer trustingly

with eyes that speak volumes more...
...than any doldrum iris.
Her lips are the sting of Anemoi,
You could suckle them forever and have naught but frostbite. ..
...they'd never melt.
Slender hands grasp a beating heart,
with digits as pale as a nigheag na h-àth.
She may launder thine cadaver-clothes,
but she won't use her arms for comfort.
You can lie between her scorching breasts,
and follow the trail of whispers down...
..to a forbidden juncture.
If you don’t know the way listen for the echoing screams.
And ah! She might arch in the throes of passion! As you plunder an empty trove...
But for what it is worth...you should not seek love,
in the arms of Sensibility.
For she is as hard as winter,
and more difficult to swallow than fire.
What You DidAt first, it was sleepless nightsWhat You Did2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
but you definitely made your mark
this is the echo my heart writes
I'm so afraid of being left in the dark.
What we had started was meant to be
your words ignited the passionate flame
there was so much you had yet to see
my eagerness something you couldn't tame.
Yes, I fully accept this shameful blame
my heart was much too large for you
I knew we would never be the same
I just wish you felt this fire too.
Indecision is your unfair attribute
you whispered false hopes in my ear
but you realized you didn't want to contribute
I was simply not enough to endear.
Even when you eventually drew away
my mind and heart could not be free
with you my poor, large heart chose to stay
I hoped that you could hear its plea.
From the nowhere you dwell, you came back
then you said, "I miss you," sounding so coy
I truly believed my heart would crack
but for the first time, I cried tears of joy.
But you have no idea what you did
gone once more, I begin to think its fate
Ocean ChildI swear my mother gave birth to an oceanOcean Child4 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
a blue, cold child filled with vast swathes of empty
nothing, just nothing, and the dark
the kind of dark that you didn’t know you’d been swallowed by
until you saw yourself trapped behind the teeth inside
the mouth giving a glimmering smile
and you know you were dead from the off
so you close your eyes and accept it
wander blind into the abyss for it seems inevitable.
But I am the ocean
I am hung heavy with fish hooks
over used and over looked
a killer, a saviour and fought over
I’m so tired, so very tired of being washed up
of carrying debris, discarded to me so I can deal with it
turn a blind eye and I’ll dispose of it, I dare you.
You damage me and everything will topple
so I will stay strong, so you don’t have to.

Life is a WarI wake up in the morning,Life is a War2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have tears dried to my face.
I go into the bathroom,
Where I see a disgrace.
This ugly, horrid person,
Is glaring right at me.
I quickly leave, I walk away;
That face I will not see!
I get dressed within my room,
Then I walk out the door.
Everystep I take outside,
Is a battle in the war.
I mustn't talk to anyone,
For people only lie.
I must wear a happy mask,
They cannot see me cry.
Soon I go back home,
Where I lay across my bed.
The battles still continue,
Just this time it's in my head.
I lay there all day,
Soon day turns to night.
I think of all the battles,
That I was forced to fight.
The battles of a heart break,
The battles of lost friends.
The battles of corrupted dreams.
This war just never ends.
Tears escape my eyes,
As I think about my past.
Friends may not be permanent;
But this pain will always last.
After hours of just crying,
Sleep finally sets in.
This war I fight everyday,
I know I cannot win…
I wake up in the morning,&

Trying to downplay your problems.
I just want to love you
But you make it so hard.
Can't you see my face?
You're looking right at me.
You can't honestly tell me
That you don't see my tears.
Damn it why can't you be normal?
I'm bound to be just like you.
And to be honest.
If I get to be anything
Like you are now.
I'll end it.
Because I couldn't live with myself
If I treat other the way you do.
Please I'm begging you.
I know you're sick.
You can get help.
Don't you love me enough
To want to be okay?
Do it for me.
I miss you.
