seasons of love
solfang May 4
the clouds on my mind
are forming rain;
and it is leaking
through the drain
of my eyes,
after I said my goodbyes
to a summer of love,
and welcomed winter
from above
reposting a draft; I'm currently stuck in winter, but occasionally feeling its warm rays.

suffocate
solfang Apr 22
I don't know
if the air on the other side
is fresher or cleaner;
all I know is,
I'm suffocating here
Gonna change to a new job for better career growth; loved my company and the people I worked with

surpress
solfang Apr 13
she said
I should suppress
my feelings for now
and she is right;

deep down I'm just
too tired to fight;
sometimes I find myself
walking further from the light;
and for that I feel like
my life can never be bright
(cont. from previous poem)
my therapist said that it is best if I increase my dosage, so I can temporarily suppress my feelings

sadness | madness
solfang Apr 10
she asked,
"what is the cause
of your endless sadness?";
and I answered,
"nothing unusual,
it's just inner madness"
went to therapy today; doctor said I'll need to have a few more sessions to resolve my problems. Have to increase my dosage as well.

just as I thought I was getting better.

mad

mad
my heart is mad at my mind
for it chose to let him go;
but deep inside it knows,
unlike my heart,
his love for me
will never grow
learn to let him go

sleeping pills
solfang Feb 15
the memories of us
induced my insomnia,
and the tears on my pillow
became my sleeping pills
how does it feel like being able to sleep at night without crying?

the truth is I can do
a thousand and one things

that reminds me of you,
but he's just not you

heartbreak
solfang Jan 28
my body recognises
what heartbreak is today;
my vessel is leaking tears
and I can't seem to fix the hole
that once made me whole

am I broken everywhere,
or just missing a part,
I can never tell,
for I've finally lost my heart

if love is this painful,
I shall learn to grief
or my feeling that was once hopeful,
might end up turning hateful
Let me know your experience post-breakup, and how long it took before you felt whole again

out of the wood
solfang Dec 2020
my heart hurts lesser today
and that is good;
perhaps it is starting to feel okay,
or in a better mood

my tears no longer wet my face,
and that is good;
perhaps I am in the right place,
or my mind finally understood
that recovery is not a race
and I should not be rushing
to get out of the wood
2 months post-breakup; I think I've finally reached a point where I can't cry when I think of my ex anymore. When someone says time heals, they are just spreading the truth.

beautiful
solfang Nov 2020
for you to write something
so beautiful and open,
how many times has your heart
been broken?
to everyone who might be reading this, your poems are as beautiful as your souls. Be strong, and choose to be the heroes of the battles that you may or may not have won

dreamt a little dream
solfang Nov 2020
last night,
I dreamt of you;
in the dream,
we were holding hands
while walking down
the park we frequented,
we were laughing,
and your presence felt stronger
than the times
we were once together

and even in the dream,
I was well awake and aware;
that this is nothing more
than a dream
my dreams are personalised; often enough, it is about things I can never achieve or desires that I have never gotten. This is written for an old crush I longed to have a chance, but I've learnt to let go

missing love
solfang Nov 2020
the love
that I've never

that I miss the most

my biggest fear
solfang Nov 2020
the monster under my bed
grasped my hand tight,
for it too,
felt my fear
of loneliness
I am my worst fear after my breakup. Was about to go to sleep when I wanted someone to hold my hands, and I wouldn't mind even if it's the monster under my bed. I miss warmth.
solfang Oct 2020
my heart does not understand loss
or the idea of what's not yours;
it had only yearned for love,
not heartbreaks that dove;

torments itself with violence,
when memories unwind;
but suffers in silence,
and left sanity behind

oh, this heart of mine
someday you will learn
to somehow be fine;
but as for now,
love and treat yourself kind
breakup ***** cause I can control my mind but not my heart

Wednesdays are here
solfang Oct 2020
when Wednesdays are here,
my love slowly disappear;
loneliness became what I fear,
when I no longer call you
my dear

perhaps after a year,
my mind will be in the clear,
my emotions, more sincere;
even if some days,
my feelings for you reappear,
I will be brave
and not shed a single tear
So, I broke up; when we were still together, Wednesdays are the day we go on dates. I guess at one point I realised that I fell out of love because I can see that even he was too.

I wish I wasn't the one
you wanted to see change;
I wish I wasn't the one
who'll change herself for love;
I wish I wasn't the one
with the feelings you
don't love;
I wish I wasn't the one
for you
potentially going through a heartbreak soon - wish me luck

when my heart breaks
solfang Jun 2020
when my
heart breaks,
my soul does too;
and I can only afford
to lose one,
but not two
Extracted from my previous poem; I feel that it deserves its own spot

tower
solfang Jun 2020
I locked myself in
this doorless tower I built;
but you bragged that
you are a pious locksmith,
and the curious me
wanted to see you try

you wanted to play
knight in shining armour
but alas,
I was the princess
you did not save

forever trapped
in this sealed tower,
when will I truly be free;
for today I learned,
even the experienced you
do not have the key
choices were made but my heart is filled with regrets.

gem
solfang Apr 2020
gem
she was the gem
that shined bright
in your eyes;
but today,
you compared
her with trash

one man's trash,
is another man's
treasure;
perhaps you've
not seen her value,
or you're never a
lapidary to begin with
thought of a relationship my friend had, and it didn't last.
guess I knew why

let it go
solfang Apr 2020
let it go,
and it's going
to be okay;
my mind gently
comforted my
broken heart

still,
my mind chooses
what it wants to see;
but my heart
knew exactly
what it felt
my feelings right now
solfang Apr 2020
I can't afford to
hurt myself anymore;

my heart shatters
into tiny shards
each time it breaks;
and I've lost
too many pieces
to mend it again

my heart
no longer has a place
in my body;
it always chooses
to come and go
to find love
with pain

I've spent hours
waiting for it to
skip back in glee;
but my heart
always returns
with nothing but
sad, sad memories

when my
heart breaks,
my soul does too;
and I can only afford
to lose one,
but not two
when will it be the right time to let go?

see
solfang Apr 2020
see
if our love
was meant to be,
why is it
that you were
the only one
who can't see?
got me doubting if we're in this for real
solfang Apr 2020
I learned
why clouds
sometimes rain
on sunny days;

it's hiding
sunbeams that light
the days away;
because when people
get too comfortable
with warmth,
they'll forget
thunderstorms exist
sometimes when you get too happy being in a relationship, you'll forget that it can potentially hurt you

muse
solfang Apr 2020
you were my muse,
the creative influence
in my poetries;
the inspiration
to my many
tales of heartbreaks,

a performer,
you sang the
songs of sorrow
that played in
my heart;
yet I found myself
singing along

your presence
is a unique form
of abstract art,
and I was the curator
that knew
your real value

I am no longer
a starving artist,
but even I had once
dreamed a dream
we'll be making
art together again
someday
your affection has been inspiring me recently, but I can feel you're slowly ghosting me– and it hurts.

object
solfang Apr 2020
all these items used
to describe my love

treated like

does anyone want to share their experience as well? I would love to hear them and give you some words of comfort.

stop writing poems

solfang Apr 2020
return
this feeling
you did not want;
this feeling
that was once mine,
deformed over time;
this feeling,
warped and wrecked,
this feeling,
stomped and threaded;
this feeling,
has no cure,
this feeling,
it hurts for sure.

bait
solfang Apr 2020
a big catch
that is worth it;
that's what you once said
when you attempted
to reel me in

yet I see there's
no longer a bait at
the end of your hook;
perhaps an easy catch
just wasn't thrilling
enough for you
suitors aplenty, yet they seem to disappear the moment I return their affection.

butterflies
solfang Mar 2020
you told me
I smelled like butterflies;
perhaps they've escaped
from your stomach
and metamorphosed
into this fluttering feeling
you're having for me
So recently, someone told me I smelled like butterflies (I'm not kidding).
I guess they were just flustered and messed up flowers with butterflies.

body with no direction
solfang Feb 2020
is my body gravitating down,
or levitating up?

either way my body
is out of control,
and I'm stuck in the middle
trying to figure out
where my feelings for you
is taking me
Not sure if this feeling will take me somewhere good, or it'll just spiral downhill from here.

solfang Jan 2020
I'll go back to my roots,
and sprout up new strength;
and when I blossom again,
it'll be done beautifully,

and the gardener who believed in me.
started a new job; previous job took away my spark, but it's time to shine once again. During this period, I'm glad I had great support from people around me.

the language of you
