I know not of the faceless side of my coin

The sound of coins dropping

Two big eyes watching
A mighty spider crawling
A cob web spinning
A tiny lock hanging
The sound of coins dropping
Your first piggy bank
Your first savings

We trade words like old coins,

We trade words like old coins,
Rattling them in our piggybanks
Until they clink past our teeth
And onto the floor between us.
Coin for coin,
They slide in exchange.
Fair is fair,
Each is stashed in the others collection.
And when we leave,
I know our sums have stayed the same,
But somehow I always feel richer.

if nights were like coins

and in it she stood

awash with crescented chrysanthemums

with honeysuckle skin and wisteria eyelashes

and with it i said

if nights were like coins

id spend them all on you

and twinkle them between my fingers

shaking them up and admiring

the glint and value of

the night and its stars

and the coppery, nickel-y dusk

that stains my hand with

the bouquet of metal and flowers



goldenrod warmth

from nights and coins

invariably spent

alongside only you

with a perfume of

evening

and pressing summer heat

and my whispers and promises

that tell you

that if nights were like coins

id spend them all on you

lots of wordplay in this one, particularly with pressing (of heat, coins, and flowers) and bouquet (an arrangement of flowers or a characteristic scent)

Sometimes I want to be with the crowd laughing
Sometimes I'm afraid of how the laughs sound
Sometimes I flat out hate laughing
Sometimes I'm a giggling mess

I've been told I glare when I'm not trying to
I've been told I can look like a block of ice
I've been told I have a sick sense of humor
I've been told I should sleep more

I was having a conversation, and what the other person said prompted me to write this.
It seems straight forward but it isn't at all. Lot of hidden stuff here.

Both sides
Have lead me

To face the same answer

I'm not ready
What have you become?


I haven't coped
How was I so blind

I'm still in shock
You were the biggest lie


For whats become

Of this
I had to face

Knowing what's unjust
And what


I feel

I Felt

Am feeling

Am not feeling



Tore my head
Right
Into two

Because


I hate You
But
I hate you too


I hate You for becoming
A violent monster
Shedding me to pieces
One by one

Convincing me
I was
The one insane
Who deserved it

I pity You

For a creature like You
Is the epitome of the destruction of beauty
Much like the Ungoliant


But you
I also hate

For taking away something
I held so dear


Even if
It was a lie

Even if
He is
Abusive

you
Took the little home
I once thought I had

Slowly but surely
you
Replaced me

Threw me out

Too caught up in you're own guilt
To even look at me

Too weak to break free

I don't pity you anymore


My emotions
Contradict

Yet it has become
Two sides of the same coin

Can't sleep, I'm so confused, I don't know what I'm feeling,  but everything is clashing.
I'll edit this later, right now it's for my peace of mind...

Sinister as it is
you wonder why
something is.
People can't see
the reality of cores.
Where lives meet
intent fashions.
Colliding hearts
reason a moment.
The gold is such
a worthy coin.

Poetry and love are two faces of the same coin.

Love and hate are flip sides of the same coin.
