All the tears that i shed, making me frown?
What part of your sick head
Told you i was in bed
With the hurtful words you say
Each and every day?
Eye Candy 💋
The water is clear,
but your wrists are stained,
your face says happy,
but your eyes say pain.
I was internet trolling and i found this.
I shut my eyes and dare to hope
That maybe today is the day
That the shadows will let me cope
I hear them whisper, “nay, nay, nay.”
Ignoring, i squeeze my eyes shut
Try to picture; birds, peace, blue sky,
Muff my ears with a thick hat
But sadly, i still see myself die.
A rustling under my small bed
That sounds like a sick voice dying
Makes me jump and hit my big head,
Suddenly, i can’t stop crying.
I flip my light switch on, nothing.
I try to reach for my phone, nowhere.
I feel my leg caught by something
My fear i can not bear.
Screaming, i cry for help out loud
As my blankets come falling down.
I can’t say why i made no sound
But till date, i never left town.
I have written this poem at 12.50 AM beacuse i have insomnia and it just kind of came to me. I really love it and i hope you guys will to. Do share your thoughts on this eight sylabble poem especially on the last stanza, what do you think happened to this girl???
I can’t drown my demons
They know how to swim.
They lurk in the shadows
To the very core of my soul.
It’s dark inside
And I’m drowning with each breath,
I don’t want you to love me
I just want you to save me.
I’m a girl made of darkness
No light within,
But you can’t see my sadness
Nor the lie that I’m living.
Maybe I don’t want to be rescued
Or better yet to be loved,
Because the only love I know
Is the pain of the life I own.
She broke a little each day, leaving the pieces with everyone she met
She broke so quietly, the pieces
Never making a sound, as they fell on the floor
Leaving parts of herself behind, trailing in her wake
Nobody even knew she was broken
But you knew, didn’t you?
The moment you looked into her eyes, so sad and haunted
You knew how beautifully broken she was
You knew, for you were broken too
Instead of gluing her pieces together, you seeped
Into her soul, until your jagged edges
Fit perfectly with hers, and together you became whole
She was beautifully broken, and so were you.
-The Girl Lost In The Bookstore
I tried so hard, i tried my best
I gave you my all, and now there’s nothig left.
You stole my heart then tore it in two
Now am falling apart, and don’t know what to do.
Divided by decisions, burned by fire
Confused by your words, tempted by desire.
I’m living in the present
My mind is in the past,
Not knowing what i’ll loose
Not knowing what will last.
Blinded by fear, drownig in doubt
Straggling to be free, looking for a way out.
