You could be right next to me, hand in my hand, other hand in my hair and I would still crave you closer to me
You deserve much better
That is plain to see
I can't possibly imagine
What you see in me
You should be with someone capable
Of giving love and devotion
I am so ****** up inside
Numb to almost all emotion
You and I are different
Your heart is made of gold
While my own is solid as a rock
Impenetrable and cold
Why was I created this way?
Who have I become?
I barely recognize myself
Or remember where I'm from
Please don't get too attached
Because I am not made of glue
So just because you are stuck on me
Doesn't mean I will be too
Left all vulnerability behind
To deteriorate in the past
It's easier to remain indifferent
I've learned good things don't last
You can't sweep me off my feet
I've already been knocked to the ground
And I'll only drag you further down with me
The longer you stay around
Please don't give me presents
I am not worthy of the price
Somebody as ******* up as me
Shouldn't be with someone so nice
Please leave me for your own good
Before I rip your feelings apart
All my edges are sharp pieces of glass
If you get any closer I'll break your heart
Stay as far away from me as you can

When I met you

the pronoun transformed to
"mine"

We are close.

I want to be closer.
Not just physically,
With me running my hands through your hair,
Or with our hands interlocked as we take long walks at night,
Or our long hugs that makes us feel safe.

I want to be closer.
Where our minds are one and our thoughts are same,
Our heartbeats are synced as an orchestra,
My weakness is your strength and yours is mine,
And I can't hide my pain and sorrow because you see right through me.

I want us to be closer.
That when they see you, they see me
Our synergy becomes like that of the tides,
Where you are in me and I in you.

This is just all I ask of you.

either come closer or stay away
having you in between is very exhausting

Billions of people
All over the world
Are knee deep in fear
It is but the tragedy of death
That threatens to keep
The closest near.
This worldwide pandemic
Not only a punishment,
But a time for self reflection
On all that we have done:
All the bruises we have caused
All the tears we cried.
And as nature slowly heals herself
Amidst humans
Keeping their tails in check,
Sparrow song trills once again
And swans find their home,
And as rare as the golden birds.
The human mayflies
Take in a moment and
Search themselves
Clean themselves
And stay still
For once in their lives
Waiting, watching, listening,
Growing closer hour by hour-
That all those decades running
Couldn't provide,
And retort
Back to being human again.
As nature heals her
Cuts and wounds
We, her children,
Are too birthed anew.
Written based off of the pandemic.

I know you’ve been searching for something
A step forward with a million to go
But it’s alright
You’re closer than ever before

All my life,
All I wanted was attention
So much to be consumed by it
Let my ego soar
At the flow of the light of the uncertain
Towards the end of the universe

In my mind
That’s the only way to happiness
In your eyes
I’m delusional and disconnected
Far away from something genuine

But when I’m alone
I feel so far away
My thoughts become consumed
My heart becomes corrupted
If only you knew how to cure this vanity
I’d spent all my dimes
To be brought back to reality

I pull the tides closer to me
I’m more than a shining light
I play games with gravity

I know you’re sad when I’m completely gone
But just wait for the heavens
To run amok
Light always fades
But the darkness shows my true colors
Watch me go
As I overshadow the cosmos

pacify me
hold me until the sun rises
blood orange over the horizon
tell me i'm the only one
as if i didn't know
bury my fears
as deep as my head on your shoulder
hold me closer
closer, closer

please?

Of all the things you could have done
You chose to walk this route
You chose to hang your head this low
To lie and sigh and pout

Amongst your loved ones you live a lie
And tell the truth you'd rather die
A road of pity, sorrow, and pain
And it's far too late to change your lane
My latest poem for the site. With everything going on right now, I need something to keep me away from the physical plane for awhile. Or at least until it comes creeping back in.
