You are just a fiend,
masquerading
as an angel.

And I am a Saint,
who is being mistaken
for the devil.
Looks can be deceiving…
Briar Ren Jul 2019
Remember me fondly,
or not at all.
Strange how fleeting a romance can be.
Briar Ren Apr 2019
Loneliness clings to my gaunt frame,
like an invisible mourning veil
that threatens to smother me
in my slumber.
I am afraid to close my eyes.
Briar Ren Jan 2019
Apart from the isolated confines of my own mind,
the warm comfort of your embrace
is the safest place I know.
My thoughts are still my own.

Your scent lingers
on my pale skin,
and when I inhale
I do not feel the
suffocating weight
of solitude.
Briar Ren Dec 2018
Indescribable
is the woe I felt
at witnessing the
cruel aftermath
of heartbreak,
and struggling
to mend it.
Now it's your turn to mend me.
Briar Ren Oct 2018
After the heartache,
you will learn that love is both
a blessing and a curse.
