you said you would be there for me
i believed your manipulative lies
i fell in love with you and trusted you
the things we used to do together
i'm suddenly doing alone and
i have no one to talk to anymore
you broke your promise, you left me
like everyone else.
you replaced me so quickly
am i that easy to get over
cold and hurt on the bathroom floor
i will lie there for the rest of my life
and my heart will always be with you
because it left when you left
and maybe that's why it hurts so bad

was uttered in a
computer generated,
non-demeaning,
gender neutral tone
by the impersonal,
unemotional,
automated,
grocery checkout machine.

"Enter your customer ID now!"
demands the artificial human.

"And... if I don't?"
I query the metallic shell
of what once was
a minimum wage employee.

There was no reply.

so I noticed that we both drink coffee.
just like anyone, we both like ours a certain way.
i like mine sweeter, with just the aftertaste of coffee there.
caramel, sugar, creamer.
i think about when i’ll have my next cup, and the idea of it alone makes me happy.
i don’t care what time of day i have it, i almost always have a cup.
i make time for my coffee.
it might be safe to say i think you like your coffee black.
you might add just the smallest touch to soften its bitter taste, but never too much.
sometimes i think you just pour it and carry on, as though it’s nothing important at all.
as though all it is, is just some quick fix.
like you just want to get it over with.
we drink it in two different ways.
i drink it slowly.
i note every flavor in every sip, i enjoy it.
i note the warmth it brings me.
i like it all hours of the day.
you drink it quickly.
quicker than me, at least.
you don’t care if it burns your tongue, or perhaps you’re used to the pain.
you accept it.
you never let it last, you move on to something else soon after.
i lay in your bed, watching your eyes as they skim the screen in front of you.
your mind is somewhere else.
i savor the moments you look my way, if even for a second, and smile at me.
i wonder if you even notice them.
i feel your laugh vibrate my bones, making the hair on my arms stand on end.
do i make you feel at all?
i reflect on it every time i drink my coffee.
i think about it with each and every sip, taking my time.
something tells me that you don’t do the same.
after all, it's just coffee.
but i put my all into this coffee.
i think you like your coffee black.

my heart
only beat for you,
and i loved
only you.
loyal to the end,
and i thought
you were too.
but you didn't stay,
and somehow,
i didn't expect you to.
another lesson learned, i suppose.

You said I could never be replaced,
That I was so special to you.
Then you left.
And just like that,
You found a better version.
And did exactly what you said you wouldn’t do.
But not only did you break your promise,
You broke my heart too.

you told me i was the one,
but now you are gone.
i realized you're not a man,
for in what we have you had run.

you were my star, you were my sun.
in the morning, you were my coffee can.
but like a travel trailer, like a caravan,
you left me all undone.

i know, i have the need to act upon.
but if you are happy, stay and have fun.
now, this may sound like a plan,
but what we need now is a repugn.
for my bestfriend who was replaced.

Why have you been acting so strange lately?
Is it just a phase or does worse awaits me?
We used to talk so greatly.
Did you suddenly realise you couldn't save me?
You're being such a ***** now,
where's my baby?
Your mean words are driving me crazy.

Is it because you found someone new?
What made you see me from a different view?
Felt like you were the only one that got what I was going trough.
Our friendship felt so true.
So what the **** am I supposed to do?
Can't you see I really miss you?

Lately it feels like I have no one.
You used to be me go-to, but I guess you're done.
I get it, you can't show me love if you ain't got none.
At least I had a lot of fun.

I love you,
you were my light,
you were my sun.
The title prob doesn't make sense, but thats what I used to call my friend. She started to become friends with someone else and suddenly she started to act like such a *****. We used to be really close but now we don't even talk anymore. I feel like I miss her but she is happy we aren't friends anymore idk. Friend break-ups are the worst :(

Even the Ocean

With all of its might
And all of its momentum

Can't stop its tides from shifting
Or tell the wind which way to blow

Exhaustion,
Is what rings through my senses as I am about to pass out,
Quater past three, it has been me who wrote through the night until now, serene and clear was it's beginning which now only became a dark memory, recurring in my sleepy mind begging for slumber,
However, such are the thoughts of one who was too weak,
Knowledge was ****** into me, yet the chains of destiny remain bounding, almost tying me up to some sort, I cannot escape.
Oh how I cannot escape this dreamlike tale of misry and restlessnes,
Oh how I couldn't protect my heart in love from dying back then.
It all came to the point of no return until they were replaced.
But why not me ? What was it which I had left to do to go as well ?
Perhaps it was decided that it should have been so all along,
I shouldn't complain, even though humans live wretchedly,
Living and finding a new light to hang onto,
Is what I find very beautiful
