Watch yourself burn
Gerald Sep 28
I was just trying to save the little that was left of me.

I didn't know.

Putting out the flames, when emotions set you ablaze just turns your heart cold.

Just to know how it feels
Gerald Aug 15
She drunk his sweet
words like poison;
She knew they would **** her eventually.

She wore his
compliments like bait luring
the demons. She knew they were coming.
Just to know how it feels. "Put dracula in charge of the blood bank"

Where do all those unexpressed emotions go?

Do they die, or maybe they just wander around inside?

Is my heart a grave yard...Or a town full of words yearning to be heard?

But if you chased my

To Nat..
Gerald Aug 13
...and this is what you've taught me; how to love someone deeply, and not want them close.

So this is what you've done. You kept me warm: and now I know to feel the cold.

You loved me like they do in the movies.
Perhaps thats the reason why it ended.

Sometimes you mean just a little. And sometimes you mean nothing at all.

My girl
Gerald Sep 27
You carry my worth
in your eyes.

Like the moon
and the sea, with his tides;

you make me fall.
you make me rise.

Sometimes you can feel the void. The emptiness. You can feel the wind blow through the chambers of your heart. And sometimes, there's a haunting silence; the sound of ghosts of all the people I've ever loved.

You can throw me to the wolves, they won't hurt me. The wolves know my scent. We howl at the moon together.

You can take me to the demons, they don't terrify me. The devil knows my name. We spend nights together.

You can give me up to ghosts so they haunt me. Oh! How they like it; this void in my chest, where my heart used to be.
Gerald Oct 9
Words meant for you, I told someone else.

When I should be in your arms, I find myself lying some place else.

Maybe that's the point of it all.
Maybe we have to fall, and we have to break, until we cannot break anymore.

I gave her my heart, but she never cares for it.

It just sits there...

                    ..collecting dust.

A haunted place
Gerald Aug 15
And there I was;

alone again.

But it didn't bother me anymore. My heart had become a harbor for ghosts.
They come. But they don't stay. But they also don't really leave.

Sometimes I ask for nothing but a feeling

Somedays all that I want is to just feel something;

A little worth. A little pain. A little love maybe.

Put the blame on me
Gerald Jun 2020
I have myself to blame.
Every "stop" sign I knocked down is a witness.

The night is cold. The night is long.

I'm talking to people, but they don't hear me.
'Cause they're all gone.

You hate me..

'cause I'm the one
person you couldn't fool.

Hexes and spells just
don't work on me.

I'm the very
darkness that makes
up you.

"Just how dark?" They ask.

"Sometimes I give the devil quite a scare," I reply.

You gave back only a fraction of what I gave. Leaving me to wonder where all the other pieces went.

And I gave you all of me.

You squeeze all the
love out of me.
Then you leave me
on poles to dry, hanging.

Maybe something I don't know about happened in the past.

Perhaps someone took away my heart.

Or is it just me?
Because everyone I meet makes me feel like I'm just so hard to love.

And now...they find it odd, that I like it so much in the dark.

He is everything I'll never be; enough and appealing.

And I'm everything that he isn't; broken and entombed. Put away.

But becoming - blooming.

You took my worth
with you when
you left.

But why
should I be mad,
when all you did was
just take back what you gave.

Its really hard to escape,
When the thing you're running from is yourself.

To want to speak. And not to know how.

To feel. And not to know what.

To be dead, and breathing; somehow.

Not one of them knows me. They think I'm lost, when I just know many ways.

I have all this inside of me, but to them its just words.

Hearts don't
break like glass.

Hearts break like cables;
they bend and they twist.

It hurts a lot before they snap.

I guess you like it when I'm begging.

You thought you'd always have me at your mercy.

Well you should know; even the strongest feelings fade, when taken for granted and ignored.

I had to stop.
Because what else is left to give, when you give it all you got?

How foolish of me to think
I would heal.

I tend to forget I've got
holes in my heart.

It can never fill.

We fade on each other's soul,
until we both ran out...

We are just looking at each
other now.
