You Broke My Heart by shrewdcat You Broke My Heart :iconshrewdcat:shrewdcat 1 0
You Come and Go
In the room
You come and go,
Adrift in desolate disgrace
And barely show your face
I see the markings of a tomb
imprinted in
Your somber guise,
A stony statue of remorse.
I wonder which is worse -
To be alive,
Or live unfeeling in your skin.
Out on my street,
In weeping rain,
In bleeding snow, you come and go
Floating to and fro
In pain,
In final spasms of defeat.
Inside my crypt
I come and go
In air weighed down by sweetened dreams.
But through the haze, it seems,
You glow,
Like hollow silky golden script
inscribed upon
An empty shell,
Discarded once and never found.
I wonder how
I'll ever tell -
Are you still there, or are you gone?
From spring to snow
And dusk to dawn,
Meander through my weary mind
I'm always left behind,
To watch you come, to watch you go.

There Is None Other
The days flow softly from one to another
Like water drifting, calm, around a stone–
That’s the way we live; there is none other.
I’ve found myself a fragrant, tender flower
with petals tapered teardrops, white as bone.
Maybe I will never seek another.
At first, when this could only bother
me, my blossom told me, with a gentle tone,
“That’s the way we live. There is none other.”
The meadow may seem full enough to smother
all thoughts of keeping what I’ve found, alone,
but all is well. Why would I want another?
And though an errant cloud could always cover
us, I know that it will pass us on its own.
That’s the way we live; there is none other.
I’ve found myself a rare and special power,
And I won’t mind if, by some fate unknown,
I never do decide to find another–
That’s the way we live. There is none other.

A stillness settles in the town
The world is gray and drab and smooth
No chains are here to hold me down,
And yet today I cannot move.
But this must end and this must go
Withdraw I will and move I must
For clearly this is nothing but
A deathly case of wanderlust.
I walk alone amid a crowd
Of people I know nothing of
You fill your lives with happiness
But me, I search for broken love.
So have your cookie-cutter houses
Empty books and plastic rings
Someday maybe I’ll be brave
And judge my life by lifeless things.
You act so sure, but I cannot
I cannot bear to see, it seems,
The sad and pretty landscape of
Your shyly hopeful, shattered dreams.
I’d love to stay right here with you
But I must tell you, I cannot
For truth is, darling, I have caught
A deathly case of wanderlust.
