My heart cries for someone tonight.
Not any of the usual suspects.
All I want is to have someone to
Sob to, to be completely naked with
During the wreckage of these
Hail storms.
But the walls only hear
My longing and they cannot
Respond
To my deep desire for breathing

You gave me hope
In a time where I did not want it
Where I refused its glimmer
And was sealing my fate
With the kiss of Death..
All from a poem
You wrote
That
Probably
wasn't meant for me.
Ronin 1d
you are with me
within me
every second
of every day

every time
i close my eyes
i see you

holding her
just like you held me

kissing her
just like you kissed me

loving her
just like you loved me

being all hers
just like you were all mine

back when
i was enough.
i tried to express the most ******* god-awful excruciating pain,

ever.

“just friends”
two simple words
that shattered everything
from my heart
to our future

i trusted you
gave you my fragile heart
please be careful, i begged
you promised me you would
but then you let those two words
escape from your lips

they were said so carelessly
as if they weren’t going to break me
and cause a heartache
my eternal doom

i should have known better
than to trust you with all i had
but i wanted so desperately
to have someone
to not be alone

but promises mean nothing
they are only make believe
empty words to ignore the heartbreak
that can’t be ignored
the ache is inevitable

you gave me back my heart
in the most awful state
so damaged it was beyond repair
forgetting one important thing:
one cannot live
without a heart to love

“just friends”
they appear to be two simple words
but coming from the right person
those two words are
the fatal gunshot.
my boyfriend broke up with me.
i.
am.
in.
pieces.
i never got to hear your heart beat
i never got to choose a name
i keep losing you before i have you
and all i feel for you is pain

i never got to hold you
or comfort you when you cried
because again i’ve lost you
and no longer have you inside

they say that healing helps you
and moving on is for the best
but how can i sleep peacefully
knowing now you’ll forever rest

i’ve cried a million tears for you
and sang a thousand songs
because in my arms my love
is right where you belong

The weight of your head,
like the whole globe on your shoulders,
the world on one neck,
the ache of one body.

I’m tired, like all of the stress simply sits on my dreams

while I’m trying to sleep it away,
but I don’t get a break-
not even one day.

At least the bowl isn’t red anymore,
at least the sun is alight.
But I’ve ached for a year now, and it’s still so unclear how
I will heal, or if ever I will.

Keep sunny, keep yellow,
like the lilies in bloom
which sit on the drawers
at the end of my room.

The weight of my head,
like the whole globe on my shoulders,
the world on one neck,
the ache of one body.

this mind grew tired
of feelings of helplessness,
this body cannot endure
the pain,
these hands can no longer
afford to tremble in weakness,
these lungs involuntarily
pump life into me
as these years slowly
escape from thy
inward eyes.

I want the mud to cushion my fall
and the moonbeams to whisper
inside of my bones and scream out
"MY BOY MY BOY COME HERE AND BEGONE
NOTHING IS MERRY
NOTHING IS WON"

and I will cry tears of bloodstains and crystal
and you will look down from your perch and
shriek
"MY CHILD MY CHILD THE END IS NEAR
LOOK UP AT THE HEAVENS
WHICH YOU HOLD SO DEAR
WHISPER HER NAME AND SPIT OUT YOUR
FEAR"
Arabella B Sep 10
Sitting on her dorm room bed
Three feet from the floor
Not quite happy
But not quite sad
She wants to feel the ache in her bones
The hatred she has for herself
She wants that to come back
she doesn’t want to feel ok
Cause she’s not
Trying to make that decision
To walkout in the middle of the night
While her room mate sleeps
And to never come back
She’s ok right now
But she wants that sadness
The depression to fill her bones
She wishes she could pull the metaphorical trigger
And not live
Oh how she aches
To just want to not be ok anymore
Because when you’re not ok
You feel alive
Or at least she does
It’s terrible beast
She hates when she’s ok but hates when she’s sad
She just wishes she could not exist
That would be her ultimate goal
She types this in the dark as her roommate drifts off to sleep
I know cause that girl is me

It’s been years.
I don’t think about the pain as much.
It doesn’t affect me that much.

But once in a while,
when I’m alone
walking down the same lanes.
when the breeze is soft,
the sky is clear.
When I’m surrounded by strangers,
I still feel you hand holding mine.
And for a moment
just a moment
I feel you in my heart.
And I smile
loving the ache in my heart.
And I whisper,”I love you “
And walk away
again drowning the the busy life.
