Gone are you,
Like Brownian smoke;
Stays the memories,
Like tar in my lungs,
Breathe In; Breathe out.
Killing me everytime,
You came and left.

I took a bullet for you, but you're the one behind the gun.

You come in and out
Everything has changed once more
Scars now mark my heart

I never questioned what love was, I never thought I could do better. Your love was always enough and we lived happily ever after.

This time we were slightly older, neither of us wanted to be alone. You kept me warm at night and I never had to question if I was the only one.

It was a dream we never had to wake up from where we kissed each other between bedroom sheets and held hands by the sea. We had the world at our fingertips and our laughter played on repeat.

Every morning we woke up together. We worked and came back home, a cooked meal and sitcom television beckoning. We said goodnight and held each other in the dark. Nobody ever worried about waking up alone.

There was never 152 miles or three hours worth of space. There were no empty weeks, we never tasted absence, and goodbye wasn't in our vocabulary. In this world you didn't leave. You never decided to give up.

Here we live on our own planet. Nobody knows we exist so we fill the silence with our secrets and constant whispers. The sunsets are ours every time.

It's the afterlife. I've been waiting and when you arrive you collapse into my arms the way an angel falls; beautifully and all at once.

I haven't seen you in thirty years. We bump shoulders today on the side of a busy New York street and the moment our eyes meet we fall back into a love deeper than the ocean and brighter than the sun.

You were born just 4 months before me in the house next door with a white front porch. We fall in love before we even know what that word means and you never move away on your 16th birthday. Instead we reach 92, sitting in rocking chairs on your white front porch. The place you first whispered I love you.

I'm your morning coffee. I'm your bedsheets too. I'm the sun that warms each winter day and I'm the space heater you turn to when it snows. In this universe I never turn cold. In this universe I know how to keep you warm.

It's Groundhog Day and neither of us can seem to escape. The day begins when we lock eyes for the first time and ends with me sound asleep on your chest. I wake up the next morning completely unaware of who you are but I still manage to fall for your blue eyes every time.

Goodbye does not exist here. Neither does stay. The words were never invented because your love never ran out and neither of us had to know what it felt like when two worlds collide and completely shatter the other on impact.

I'm a broken toy on the side of the street.
When you're walking with your mother you pick me up and take me home and glue my broken pieces back together. We spend the rest of that summer side by side in a sandbox praying the laughter never ends.

We're two raindrops living on the opposite  sides of the same cloud. When the sky turns grey and each of us tumble to the ground, you find you way to where I am melting us together right before we crash into the pavement.

You didn't sleep in a bed that wasn't ours. I never threw that vase at your bedroom wall. Our voices never got too loud. I didn't crash my car on the way home. Instead you played my favorite song and we slow danced until time stopped and the stars fell out of the sky.

We are a picture frozen in time, framed on my left nightstand. Our love doesn't change here, nor does it fade. We keep laughing until the people we became have long passed that captured moment in time.

Yesterday I loved you
And the day before too
But the last time you loved me was about a year or two
You had the eyes of the ocean
The perfect color blue
And it's funny because now that blue is always my mood
Your soul just soaked into mine like the sea
And now everywhere I look you're all I can see
I'm begging you to just let my love free
I'm begging you to just set me free
Because yesterday I loved you
And the day before too
But when you set me free
All I have is to love me

I don't have any friends
I say im good with people
Always abled to communicate trends
You know, the stuff that's hardly lethal
But what about the stuff that matters really?
See I'm profoundly too scared
I can't express my emotions freely
Not matter how hard I try, I'll always use a laugh emoji or smirk and say I'm alright
But the thing is, I'm not
And I don't know if I'll ever be
And I don't know if I'll ever let them see
Hellopoetry is my salvation,
When I call my friends to tell them I'm hurting in portions
I can't, I pretend to laugh when they enquire
But cry so hard inside to my desires
I ask about  their wellbeing and as usual,
I try to be their salvation.
But right now
I'm tired
There's a growing lump in my throat
Or in my chest,
I don't even know
But it hurts so much
That I'm naturally tired
Just too tired to be alive


It's a good thing I guess
Now you can focus on yourself
You probably deserve to be treated better
You guys weren't meant to be together
That's what I hear when they notice the sad gloomy face I wear.
I guess a heartbreak gives you a certain kind of look. Your face is colored by pain and regrets, regardless of how hard you try to hide it. People would still notice. But why wouldn't they?
When your happiness is gone. The real reason for why your face is always lit. A message from that special person sends your heart beating twice as fast. It's that adrenaline rush you get from getting to see their glorious smile outshining the sun on the brightest of days. The warmth feel of their hands wrapped around you in a hug, that feeling of knowing there's nowhere else you'd rather be than with them at that present moment. But when all of this is gone, there would be a new tone to your face, a new look….that makes people know something is right.
I wear a smile to disguise my look, I smile as often as I can. I tend to push thoughts of you out of my mind knowingly. It's the only thing I can do if I'm to wear my new look without people knowing what's up. I miss you a whole lot. But now it wouldn't show on my face anymore. And if I'm to meet you again?...you would be greeted with my new look and I'll hope you like it.

I fought for you
I'm still fighting
You're not here
You're nowhere near
I'm uncomfortable
I'm scared
I know you safe
Know you're somewhere
Where my demons can't smile
But why are they joking around in my head?
I know you're safe
Nothing in your surroundings can hurt me
Can hurt us
But still my demons parry
All I want to hear is your voice
Saying those words
Meaning those words
To put the demons to rest
My best friend
My thoughts

Seema 14h

My vision got caught
By the glimmering sunset
So many, yet, just one thought
Ignited fire, within my chest
Truth is all, I honestly seek
Lay on sand, listening quietly
As thou the waves would speak
The soothing words politely
Clasped my hands over my face
To stop the emotional rain
Hoping my shadow would cast a trace
But it was only me and my forever pain
Silent questions explode in my mind
Why!! O' just why you promised
The words that are fake and unkind
I know I will never be missed
Every new story you cast
You drag me in as your tragedy queen
Reels fill in too fast
I am left shattered
                           while you grin at your win...

First time that I said it I had tears in my eyes.
Dread crushing my gut like grapes in summertime.
Took it back with regret, maybe some other time.
You can give me your heart with abandon.
Yet I must smother mine.

Hard to feel loved when you cannot be yourself.
