A drip of perspiration
Runs down to my chin
My shaken hands rise
To wipe it away

I bite my nails
But can’t look away
Trying not to text again
Out of desperation

Why did it have to be today
When I got enough courage
To spill my feelings?
Did they overflow
Onto the floor?
I can’t tell…

Time’s ticking
And my heart strings are ripping
Can’t I get a grip
But I just can’t let this thing slip

We’ve been through thick and thin
We’ve bent along with the curves in life
So I just need you to be mine tonight
Please tell me it’ll be alright.

A soul so precious it's aura gold
Yet stained with sadness untold
In life's waves is tossed
Still keeps good spirits
Despite all he has lost

He is rain on a hot summer day
Heart beating underneath shades of grey
Band-aid to cushion wounds no one else seemed to see
Healed with one kiss from him effortlessly

But now he wears armor over his own skin
Preventing new love from seeping in
And I don't think I can break through to his soul
Without ripping a gigantic unmendable hole
I want to see what's inside

Respectability boredom
The basis of your
very happy marriage.
Added to it my painful
everlasting suffering.
My heart-ache,
and heart-break.
It all came to it's
inevitable end.

Everyone as everything
comes to a holt the"end."
I roled your deceitful dice back!
You now rip back
what greedy ones have planted
in your ***** garden's door
and my suffering.

This universal law applies
as a balancing Libra scale!
It just never fails for anyone
It's all an ever
pendulum Oscillation.

Brighter than sun
Shiner than star
Glowed like a moon
King of my heart

Darkness followed no too far
Shattering the feeble
Glass of portrait
You painted so far

Monster lurking behind
The hollowness
Broke me apart

Left me too broken
Even to feel the rhythm of
My heart

You rolled the dice
I played along
Unaware of the pieces
Happening around

Now it’s too late to
Dwell on the past
When future is too hazy
And present seems
A mess to sort

Brightness dimed
Glow lost its par
Disappeared shining star
Leaving behind
A broken heart
Dying soul
Ripping apart.

Let's start new
We knew
The lies
We both sew
Ripping them out
Bleeding in process of
Inflecting more hurt
Than cure
So, what you say?
Let's start new with
Love and no pain

I understand the intention wasn't to harm,
but each slash oozes a new hue of red
it leaks from my head, my eye sockets, my mouth
everywhere you could think
It jogs down my neck and mixes with stressful sweat
I'd look down at my feet, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to see them
I'm terrified of the possibility that if I thought to look down the only thing I'd see was a warm mahogany puddle
The neverending, searing pain contaminating my thoughts
dragging out and speeding up time
My hands have grown numb from trying to stop the gushing blood
You'd think by now I wouldn't feel the shooting stings, but I can feel it all
Every knife twist, or flea bite
I feel it all
the gnawing feeling at my heels begging me to double over
but I will not
I cannot let you know how you got to me
I will bite my tongue, and clench my teeth until I choke and drown in my own blood and gore
my cheeks will turn to a thick pulp before I admit I am in pain
Watch as my gallbladder seeps bile,
my appendix bursts,
and femur cracks
not knowing what to do with the pressure on my mind
too weak
too strong
i don't know which

I feel like ripping wet paper
and smashing mangoes against my lips.
