Closure
Is an illusion
Science shows us
Life is constantly
In flux

Cant keep waiting
On a certain moment, event,
Or epiphany
To button up our suffering
In a neat little package

We've hung on to this hope of
AFTER
Only "AFTER" is when I'll be healed
Enduring days won't be devastating
And suddenly I'll be this beacon
Of strength, I'll be able to endure anything

In truth,
Grief's a heartache
That never really goes away
The brain starts to play
With what's "fact"and whats "fake"

If this is the way
Then where am I going?
Notepad 5d
I told you who I see,
Because im done blaming me,
And you choose to walk away,
Didn't even tried to stay,
Easy to brush away,
Cause you dont care anyway...
You showed me how much you treated me badly and I pretended that im okay so you wouldnt hurt yourself. I believe that there is good in you always, that's why I stayed and hoped we could make it. But you gave me no signal, no response, no story. What am I to do? When I did the best of me for you? Making me feel like I haven't done so much in trying, in hoping that everything is going to be okay. But this isn't okay, how much pain I embraced from your absence, silence, recklessness, hopelessness and to make me feel like I'm not being enough for you. Why do I despair now? I don't know anymore...
at least , at last love me
even though its not the consuming love
i just wanna experience the warmth of it ...

I want to unfold,
Stand and raise up
I'll stretch so far,
I'll touch the moon and sun.

Every star will fall,
Crashing through me
I'll never collapse again
I'll never feel the burning left by shame.

I'll expand into space's darkness
I'll know just how everything's connected
and feel I'm home once more,
and never hide my own galaxies.

I'll become space dust.

I can feel my body breaking
in the tiredness of my bones
I can feel my body breaking
in the heaviness of my clothes

I can feel myself letting go
of what I used to dream
I can feel myself letting go
as the apathy rises around me

I can feel my mind shattering
as he tells me what he thinks
I can feel my mind shattering
as our friendship starts to sink

I can feel so much
but I still don't seem to care
I can feel so much
in the distance that is there

I can't let myself feel this way
in the long-range
I can't let myself feel this way
it's time to make some change
Can love exist without expectation?
Indeed,  you aren't expecting them to bring the water
yet you will die of thirst.
ME
AFTER 50 YEARS
" EVEN THE MOST-WELL BUILT BUILDINGS
ARE BOUND TO CRACK
BUT HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT
I STILL DONT HAVE
A SLIGHTEST OPENING
IN MY HEART TO LET YOU GO "
EVEN THOUGH YOU LEFT ME
I sacrificed true love,
hopes in finding a cure.
Snake used to be a dove,
skin shedding close so pure.
they said in time hearts heal,
I know this all a lie,
my heart was all a steal,
take my halved heart and try.
let dakness all reside,
it shields me from the pain.
fog and rain divine eyed,
at least not all again.
come last breath I am free,
relinquished or not be...

Yawn, being sleepy,

I drowse my waking days like --


sleepless, dreamless nights.

Silence in chaos
triumph and loss
The house became empty
the line had been crossed.

Empty threats
spat in my face.
Accepted with grace.

Memories escaped.
As your smell slowly fades
from this room and also
my heart.
