Promises are promises
Eyes tell me so
I can see past
What's put up for show

Your voice is very strong
I see your lips quiver
Your shoulders stand straight
I see your spine shiver

On the calm surface
You remain unaffected
But a trace of hidden regret
Is what's being detected

You think you are alone
This feeling of pain
I'm out here wet with you
Look through the rain

It is hard to admit
I hate this too
This unwanted downpour
We are both going through

These words still haunt
A memory's sweet kiss
You were right when you said
That a promise is a promise
And it's something you keep at all costs
Amanda Jan 28
I will wait and hold on a little longer
Watch and hope this time both can be stronger
For the **** of it I'll give you one more chance
Love you too much to break the trance
The way I'm captured under your spell
Has me trapped within a cell
I start thinking then I can't stop
Done shedding tears for you, not one more drop
I think I deserve truth-you owe me at least that
Love you more than you love me that is a fact
Letting go is looking like the only option left
Solitude the outcome so challenging to accept
That is the last remaining way I see out
Already given too many chances to count
You have no clue how much effort I've put in
If it is meant to be it will be in the end
Until you take the leap and are ready to be sober
The commitment we have in our relationship will be over
It is my life at stake and that's the reason why
I mean it when I swear to you this is our FINAL try..
I'm done with you for good this time
I know I've said it before
But you can't give me what I need
And I can't take the heartache anymore
Amanda Jan 8
It's always you I run back to
No matter what you put me through
Though you tear me right in two
And leave me broken, black, and blue
Wishing I was someone new
Or that I could forget the person who
I fell in love with and fell into
The first one to feel the same way too
Over the years our love stubbonly grew
But deep down inside I think I always knew
You treated me far too good to be true
Now I'm alone with feelings I brew
Mixed-up and crying tears long overdue
Feeling like a fool for letting you undo
All that we worked for and longed to pursue
Blind to your black magic and wicked voodoo
I'm realizing I liked it better when I had no clue
Of your selfishishness and the way you threw
Us away like trash not worth starting over anew
Our relationship you just wanted to outdo
My happiness but it was forced and askew
You never knew how many boxes of tissue
I went through to get over each issue
Never realized you held me together like glue
Til these organs started turning to goo
My skin transformed to stone much like a statue
Into my sanctuary I carefully withdrew
There I am safe I keep emotions subdued
Walls erected block out anything I could misconstrue
But I admit I'm sad we'll never have the chance to redo
The closest I'll get is deja vu
You're permanently on my heart like a tattoo
I'll never forget each late-night rendevous
Or the nights we wasted determined to argue
Now I wish I had them back so I could review
I wonder how you see it from your point of view?
This lonely heart is confused and I'm not sure what to do
I've tried but can't seem to bid you adieu
Because it's obvious it's pointless to attempt and renew
It hurts just looking at you when we *****
Cause I swear I was meant to be with you
It's always you I run back to
Forever you'll have me whether it's my choice or not. I'm just stuck on you..

I swear I will do anything for you.
I don't care, as long as you don't leave me.
My blue-veined love for you always runs true...
You are the only one that sets me free.
I always love the smooth drum of your high...
Please, numb me until there is no regret.
You are there when I don't see a blue sky.
The needle is where my hopes will be set.
Oh, do you mind taking me to the edge?
It's a lonely ride, so would you come with?
We'll dangle our feet over the steep ledge...
Their tale of pain remains only a myth.
    I am asking you not to go away...
    Because with me is where you'll always stay.

The feeling of stars running through the circuits
feeling an energy that can't be contained in a
jar or a capsule predicting all of my sayings and
All of my movements swearing you know me so
well in this circumstance,
Freeing the people from space in this circumstance,
Why is it always about you?
Why is it thAt I can't shake the feeling
of being with someone as bold as me.
Losing you would be something i couldn't bare,
Your static electrified me in there,
The thing inside my chest,
Don't know if it's a heart or crimson crest.

im about to break someone’s ******* NOSE.
today’s a mess.
sushii Oct 2018
i look to you,
my eyes trace your face,
your jaw,
your neck, your shoulders...

my eyes move up to your lips.
i then will my eyes up to yours, latching onto your gaze.
i grab hold of it with whatever i can...
i beg you with the dilation of my pupils to just please
speak to me.

i can see it...the little inkling of a phrase,
a word, or
a name.

it's so close...it lingers on your lips,
the scent of the unknown word plaguing my nose.

your lips part.

and i see it. you are about to say my name...
you are so close to saying it.

but your lips slowly close,
my name retreating back into your lungs.


i swear that,
when you exhaled i
could have sworn i had seen my name spelled out in the cold winter air


that night.

how grieving
can a heartbreak be,
till one swears off love
completely?
I hate rainy seasons— those are the times when I think of the love that never happened.

O *****, ***, ****, *******, sweet darling!
She cried.
Moved with feeling, I wept, I understand you!
