Darting Eyes
Millie 6d
Those darting eyes
Never satisfied
With what lay directly before
She’ll play all day
Then waste away
And do it all one more

Word Stain
Millie 6d
Her words
Like a tattoo
Stinging as they etch onto my heart
Never to be removed

The Blue in Her Eyes
Millie Oct 7
The blue in her eyes
Complimented the blood on her lips
Her galaxy of freckles
Were magnified by tears
The further she rose in the world
The lower she sank on her floor
A perfect mess
But she was mine

The Blood and The Rain
Millie Sep 30
The cut down her lip was perfectly straight
As if it had been purposely crafted
It slowly oozed one red drop
She didn’t stop it
Rather, accompanied it with her tears

Tainted
Millie Sep 27
I just wanted someone to hold me “without an ounce of selfishness”  
But as I lay there, falling asleep, his sweet caresses teetered towards that of greed
It wasn’t much, most would call it innocent- some might think it cute
But for me it changed everything
I could no longer lay down my defenses and fall asleep in his arms
I could no longer wake and be enamored by his face
His lips could speak the same words that once sent butterflies swirling within me only to awaken feelings of disgust, shame, and pity
For I had let myself think he was untouched by the world
And my reality was tainted

Drifting
Millie Jul 13
It feels right
Never a fight
Just a thief in the night
Stole our love
Made a space
A distance filled by his face
And the fame that you chase
For the hole
In your heart
When this barrier had its start
But your mother never saw
All the things beneath my scars
Her view marred by the way that I once fell apart
Millie Jul 9
Funny how your warm embrace with emanation pierces cold
How painted words and reminiscence quickly became old
Your approval I once thrived upon, now makes me feel ill
This change was never tangible
Not one action- not one word
Though I fear it's irreversible
Our chapter preemptively told

Dammed Whip
Millie Jun 15
Drip
    Drip
       Drip
Each time he snaps his whip
   The channel only grows
The dam will overflow  
    Attrition from his grip

Unasked Questions
Millie May 6
Her unasked questions fill the room
Unnerving
We stumble around a conversation
But our eyes lock
They’re asking what her lips are too afraid to form

It’s All In The Gray
Millie May 5
I wanted to believe it was black. Or white.
But found that it was gray.
Only, that was a birds eye view
The closer I get
The more I realize
It’s black AND white
Side by side
In every situation
Good and bad in all their extremes- everywhere.

Imposter
Millie May 5
Reality tumbles around me
When at last I try to speak it
Alarmed, I feel an imposter
Am I deceiving myself?
Or is reality deceiving me?

Aftershock
Millie Feb 6
Like crawling out of the rubble
From an earthquake
I gape at the devastation around me
And wander towards “home”
Feb 6 · 409
Commotion
Millie Feb 6
It’s all spinning
around and around and around
I tumble forward
The ringing in my ears screeching louder
The crowd moving closer
Until my eyes meet
You

Out of the Loop
Millie Jan 27
Suddenly you’re afraid of me
Of how I might react
So sullenly you hide yourself
Among the mist of words
You’ve forgotten I see through the fog
Of fake and insecure
Though prying would undoubtedly
Break what was before
So here I sit a stalemate
To watch your facade fall
A love that’s birthed on desperation
Was never love at all

Mecha
Millie Dec 2019
It feels like...
Your head is buzzing
The people around you are blurry
And although they seem slower
Time goes faster
The pressure spreads around your head
And starts to throb in your ears
Your eyes begin to give up on seeing
The lights are angels with halos
And the ground embraces your cold body
Sleep becomes such sweet mercy

Loop
Millie Oct 2019
Obsessive compressive
Self flawed and depressive
This puzzle never fixed
My mind is a glitch
The loop is infinite
Till begrudgingly
I let go

Sleep Haven
Millie Oct 2019
Most people go to sleep each night
So they can wake up every morning
And live
I wake up each morning
So I can grow tired every night
And sleep

Silent Quarrel
Millie Sep 2019
You see the ice and think I’m frozen
You need to get better at this “hon”
But there’s so much spinning around my brain
And so little of it would change what my eyes stole from yours
So I walk away
Betrayed by the lump in my throat

Birthstage
Millie Sep 2019
Drivers license
Freedom run
Dancing queen
The fun’s begun
Big 18
Turn round and vote
Wander forward
Pretend to gloat
Poisoned apples
Caramel draped
A front of happiness
To dull the pain
Birthdays are a joke.

Star Watcher
Millie Sep 2019
The way the red stains his face
And the stars align her fate
Leave me here to wait
For my life to move on

Life’s Waves
Millie Sep 2019
Life
Like a wave beating my limp body against a rock
All I can manage is to gasp for air
To hang on to something
And allow myself to continually thrash
Until all that’s left is pulp

Oozing Heart
Millie Sep 2019
The tip of the knife punctured just enough to cause pain
To ooze blood
To cause the owner the discomfort of a broken heart
But it was never ****** with a passion to ****
For killing was wrong under all circumstances
And besides the point,
It was far too merciful

The World In My Head
Millie Sep 2019
I live in my head
More than the outside world
Details go unnoticed
And I perceive events as images and emotional swirls
The others don’t understand
They think I’m careless
Or bizarre
But I’m content in this land where none of the people are

Messy
Millie Aug 2019
My life is a mess
That just keeps spilling
Into everyone I meet
and everywhere I go
I just want it to end

Early Mourning
Millie Aug 2019
They wondered why I didn’t mourn your absence
But I did
Each night I knew you
I dreaded the day I would no longer love you
I cried for the day you’d see another
Because I saw it coming
And I don’t procrastinate grief

Fling
Millie Aug 2019
Our fling has flung
Our dream is done
You kissed me so
My heart awoke
Oh how the world moves on

Longing
Millie Aug 2019
In essence she wishes for everything she lost
She wants then even when there’s a better now
She’d trade prosperity for the comforts of an old life

Waiting
Millie Aug 2019
Waiting
My brain toys with a thousand possibilities
Teasing my already uneasy mind
Logic pulls its best defense  
But it’s too late
It’s all creeping in
Until I give future no chance
And ruin myself
Aug 2019 · 488
Distance
Millie Aug 2019
I feel you distancing yourself
I watch you slowly back away
And if I were smart I’d do the same
But I run hopelessly towards you
Like chasing a parting train
Like grasping for a rainbow

Silence Speaks
Millie Aug 2019
Our silence used to speak love
But now it whispers defeat
It whispers distance
It whispers “run”

Time

Like a spider
Weaving an endless web
Sometimes disturbed by the wind
Time works itself out

Dissatisfied
Millie Jul 2019
She wondered why she had to live
And ignored my pleas to stay for me
While she tied the noose

Tired Love
Millie Jul 2019
Exhausted
At the thought of you
Torn
From my love for you
Empty
From the energy you stole
Broken
By the things we can’t control

Emotions attain no logic

Eerie Smile

His smile was plastered
Immovable
Fixed
And I had an eerie feeling as he waved at me

Paranoid Mind

The closer I get to you
The more I see you slipping through my fingers
Dam* my paranoid mind

I savored the smell of his shirt
While he calmed my paranoid hand
And time focused itself

Approval
Millie Jul 2019
My approval driven state confused them
But with each disappointment I felt the weight of the ones before
Cement filling my ever heavy chest

Dread
Millie Jul 2019
I bite my lips
And take a step back
Today is the day
I dread to see your face
I push forward anyways
Go on,
Break my heart

Time Bomb
Millie Jul 2019
Tick tick tick
The time bomb no one saw coming
Except me
And I watched helplessly
Emotion so far from me
As it all went down

Heavenly Father
Millie Jul 2019
Though your galaxies still confuse me
And I yearn to hear stories untold
I long to share your presence
I know I’m your daughter of old

Embers Fade
Millie Jul 2019
Rain turns fire into steam
Time turns flames into ashes
An evening chill fades embers to coal
And so it was with you
Our burning embers scattered and gave way with the wind

Death
Millie Jul 2019
Everyone round me was crying
But my voice remained steady
My emotions remained vacant
As I watched myself live

Asleep Next To You

My favorite way to fall asleep
Is next to you
Short days and long nights become our summer

OCD
Millie Jul 2019
OCD
I’m so tired
But the second I lay down I remember
The drawer
It’s open
My sock
It’s missing
My mirror
It has a water spot
My face
I only washed it once
My ring
It’s out of place
Tired never wins

Days in the forest
Millie Jun 2019
Alive
I run through the forest
And smell the wet soil
It has rained
And the leaves are still leaking tears
The sun smiles down with golden rays
And the sky wears its prettiest blue dress
I settle by an oak tree
And lock eyes with a deer
We are both curious
Comfortably so
He comes within three feet of me
Before stamping back to his business
And I walk back to mine

Jake
Millie Jun 2019
Unwittingly I make every conversation depressing with the mention of your name
And oh how often I say your name
