you inhale tragedies
and exhale poetry
From where do you get your perseverance?
Michelle Jun 2020
No one warns you about how bad it feels
how bad it feels to fall back into your worst habits
how bad it feels to wake up hurting
how bad it feels to witness yourself become the person you swore you'd never be again
how bad it feels to watch the one thing you love slip right through your fingertips
No one told me it would hurt this bad
I want to stop hurting
please make it stop

For nights on end,
I thought about the questions you failed to answer
questions you failed to know about
but i took everything within me to ask them now
i wish i never opened that window of conversations
i would not be hurting right now

Because of you, the words "i love you" mean nothing
the three words i cherished the most
now hurt the most to hear

Because of you, it hurts to wear my black ring
because all i see when i close my eyes
is your smile from the day it was given to you

Because of you, i am scared of love
scared to give up on us
because i grew to love you
and ended up falling in love with you

But you don't fall out of love
and this is how i know you never fell in love in the first place
this wouldn't be easy for you
if you had fallen with me
i wanted us to be forever

i wish you were still here to hold me
to tell me everything's gonna be okay
to wipe the tears from my eyes

i wish you were still here to hug me
to lay a kiss on my head
to love me when i felt i couldn't be loved any longer

i wish you didn't have to go
because i need you the most right now

i need you to tell me that everything's going to be okay
need you to hold my hand
as i walk through the fire
need you to distract me from the pain

why did you leave?
please come back
take me with you

i pray for my happiness

almost as much as i pray for yours
i just want to see you happy, can you want that for me too?
Michelle Apr 2020
The sound of your name provides bliss never felt before
a faint sense of hope
with just a hint of love

The name of the soul
who means the world to me
who i fell hopelessly in love with

i love you endlessly
