I wish for the emptiness,insecurities, and hatred to leave.
And leave nothing but their footprints,
their sound and their silence.
A little reminder that they were once here.
Like some of my friends.
I wish to thank them soon for leaving.
Because apparently,
I only have a few room in my heart-
for one thing or another.
And it could no longer be
for things
that doesnt wish to stay.

There’s always that one person
You can’t forget
Penciled into your mind
On fine white paper
Glistening in the warm summer rays
It’s a spot stained black
With shades of grey

Filled with past memories
Like a tape rewinding
Your mind recalls
All the moments you shared
The sweet whispers
And tears of sadness

No matter how many easers you use
They’ll never be forgotten.

Invested my love to you 3 different times
then you ghost me like I never existed?
naw you got this -ish twisted, love

I want a refund
My heart professes perpetuity, and was so faithful to, yet my mortality minds no frame nor memory of you.

This epidermis sheds and skins from disuse; need my heart evidence, might my chill-cracked palms be your proof?

The contours of your constitution, all known by their names, are perhaps now amended by the passage of passing age and days.

The sirens of your voice's sound, awaken me from my dreams; the symphonies of my soul's supplications, now so strange and foreign seem.

My heart professed perpetuity, and is so faithful to, so should this skeleton and its dependents devoice - mon Amour; my heart remains with you.
Why can't I forget you?
I hate this foolishness
Self Respect has flown away
Dignity can't look at me
Vulnerability appears to have gotten out of hand
I can't understand why
I can't forget you
vulnerability appears to have gotten out of hand

I am hesitant
to pour less words on paper
left to drift away
this is my first time writing one; although right now---it's somewhat fun testing myself in trying something new; its not that good yet but, it is worth the try :D

is it harder to
forget or to remember?
to forget is bliss

a numb, empty bliss.
and to remember is to
live with so much pain

The tears rush up into my eyes
Every time I see you
Because I know you’ll never be mine
In the past I would have given it all
But now when I fall
I can’t…
My heart’s too weak
Like a bone that’s broken
It never heals to be the same
And I know I’m not worth your time
But I’ll admire you in the golden light
While your eyes shine like the brightest stars
It’s a lovely sight
Falling Up Apr 13
Shards are scattered
The ticking hourglass has run out of sand
It was bound to happen
And this time there’s no turning the clock back again
The crack was eventually going to shatter the mirror
Leaving behind pieces
That make up something unclear
A broken reflection
Of what used to be so whole
Maybe it can be put back together
But I just don’t know
To all those bonds that have broken
