And there she sat in silence
embedded with folds of loneliness
amidst terrible despair
and ear shattering silence
in a hope that somebody would come
who could possibly
untwine those folds
replacing the cold with his warmth
I've been hiding baby
Oh for so long
Been afraid I'd turn into the morning fog
I'm still shaking when I'm standing right next to you
You call my name and time just stops

You make sure to hold my hand in a dark room
I'm holding back from you
Because once you get me there is no turning back
In this game of two
heartbreaker and the fool.

I am the beginning, I am the end
I am unfathomable and intagibly blend

The creator of deep and divine sleep
I devise the Silence , not creeps

What a hearsay - "Wicked dwells at my lee",
Ha, i see only humans tarried here for free.

My existence made the star glow
Whole Celestial unfailingly borrow

Light,Light ,Light
bright, admired however trite

"My confidante, dont forget", I remark
When ever there is light, there is always dark

I blinked, once too much. I opened my eyes, a stranger bearing the face of whom I once loved. Unknowing you is a journey on which I embark, endless wandering hoping to loose traces of you. Wondering, unsure, how does one lose all they love yet keep the scars. Painted an angry red against the pale softness of my skin. I blinked once, twice more, hoping to reverse time. Hoping the same mistakes will lead me back home. But you and I, we are nothing like the fairytales they feed children before bedtime.

The first time I actually saw him
My heart raced.
Then it was a date
Then it was a trip
Emotional abuse became my potion

The first time I saw him
He was just another guy
That guy told me it was nice meeting me
He thought that was goodbye
Then he saw me again
He told me he would never like me.
He said no three times in one sentence
Now he smiles and looks or my eyes in full rooms
Says be safe, and long time..... like he cares.
My ego reminds me  he said no

The first time I saw him
He  was just another guy
Then we argued a lot
Then he started saying things like I'm his half
That  I'm the love of his life
Talking about babies and   ***
But he touches me and all my senses are awakened
He holds my hand and it fits perfectly and when I try pulling away,
he holds it down tighter

Yesterday  he used my phone to text himself
He said I love you so much
He has shown it.....
He has never said it though
For me to believe it, I need to hear it too.
You can know when there's something

I feel the panic awaken in me
Like a tidal wave in my lungs
And a ticking clock in my heart
But then you pull me closer to your chest
And I remember
I am safe in your arms
You’re a sanctuary
A shelter from the storm
And wherever we are
I know that when I’m with you
I will always be home.

I need your heart
I need your presence
And all that aches within me
Is the lack of you
The lack of your scent
The lack of your soft skin
Your absence breaks me
It splits me in half and rips me to shreds
I’m missing a piece shaped like you
Shaped like the way you curl up when you’re cold
Shaped like your messy morning hair
Shaped like the electricity between two souls
Yours and mine
Heart to heart
Together forever
Even if miles apart.

Write me a poem,

Share your emotions,
Share your feelings,

Show me how you feel,
Write anything,
What’s on your mind,
Share what you think,

Just write something,

What you imagine
Or things you see,
What you admire,
Show your beauty,

Give me an insight,
What’s underneath,

Show me something
Special to you,
What you hold nearest
And dearest,

Or show me a story,
Show me something
Different something,
Unknown,

Write me a poem,
Give it a go.
What do you think? Ways I can tidy it up a bit or improvements welcomed! Maybe “Write me a poem, write something“ as an ending and link it in but I wasn’t too sure

I’m frozen like a traveller under an avalanche
Your touch is all that keeps me warm
The way you trace your fingertips on my arms
Or how you look at me when your hand cups mine
Your scent, your laugh, your being
It’s all too much because once not there
My arms are empty
My hands are cold
And all I feel is the scent
Of you missing
Of you not being here
And the glow of your presence
Being gone.
You whispered
sweet lullabies, keeping
all of my demons under
your control.

You thought
you had my heart, but
really it was my freedom
that you stole.

-You hid me behind
prison walls..
