”It’s been a long day and i’m trying to figure it out
The way those words left your mouth
I feel broken, shattered and blue
And it’s all because of you
And i’m trying, trying to figure it out
If this is love,
Why does it break me down”

Not once have I ever questioned
Why Humpty Dumpty sat on
A wall.
Not once did I ever question
The size of his hat.
Time is just one of those things
Easily hard working,
No matter how many times you
Yell out wait,
It just walks on.
No matter how much you care,
No matter how much you crave
It’s touch.
If you’re not careful, it’ll pass you by.
Not once have I thought about
The answers to any of these questions.
It’s quite painful,
To love someone risking the chance
They might not love you back.
It’s quite painful,
To teeter totter on a wall.
Even more fearful knowing
That you might fall.
But anything is better than
Walking on eggshells

She was the light
You threw her gas
Lighting her up
Turning it to flames
Ending in smoke

You say I'm wrong
but you know I'm right
which is why we always fight.

I try to be the best I can
but you just want the attention of a man
not the love or care I give

threatening to take my life
when its already yours
I want to make you happy

you just want the money
you don't care
I don't understand...
I want to love you
but I just can't

No matter what I do
it's never enough
I'll do want you to want

just please accept my love
I'll do anything for you
as long as your mine
This is about a girl who only cares about money and herself. Her parent (the man in the poem) will give her anything she wanted, even though she does want his love or to love him. He tries to make it work. but she ends up making him seem like the "Bad guy" in the relationship. All he wants is love. She wants money and attention. He gave her both, now he wants love in return. But she refuses to give it. now he fights to gain her heart while she pushes him away.

How do you learn to be alone
When you were with me
For all my milestones
How do you move on
When the pain
Is so intertwined
With the pleasure
How do you leave
When what your heart wants
Is to stay
How do you stay when you know that you can't

I said this would not happen again
I told myself I would not let it
I said I was deserving
I said nothing less of a princess

But still

I allow him to push me around
I allow him to make me feel small
I allow him to say the things he wants because

They’re just words
They’re just jokes
They’re meant to be funny
They’re not met to be taken seriously

But I guess

The fat on my stomach told me he is not wrong
The cellulite in my thighs nodded with his words  
The hair on my face agreed with every word he spoke
The slab of fat on my arm swung in agreeance

I found myself deciding my self-worth on

How many times he said I was beautiful
How many times he said he loved me
How many times he let go of my hand when people approached him
How many times he cared to open any door for me

I said I had changed
I said I was better
I said I love me


You broke me  
You left behind a person I don't recognize
You left me

Back to square one

Your love was like a potion
that heals me
whenever I feel feeble.
You healed my soul
from its melancholic tragedy.
Yet, unconciously
it was slowly tarnishing
me inside like a poison.
the love that healed you in all your pain and misery. yet, unknowingly, this love is slowly killing you inside.

Looking at the waxing moon,

I hum softly one of our favorites.

Blowing smoke rings,

You  look up at the starry night;

Counting stars and trying to figure out constellations.

‘It's an Orion’ you say,

Breaking the silence of the night.

I look away, skipping stones into the brook.

As the fog settles over,

Your Orion disappears beneath.

Distracted, you pick up your stranded ukulele

Adjusting the broken strings, you sing

“Apki nazron ne samjha;

Pyar ke kabil mujhe”

I chuckle at the parody.

Writhing in trauma,

I resent your poignant emotions.

Even after years of distress, you thought

You had me cold.

I shudder, brushing my vulnerability away.

Embracing the empty fog.

You lie down on the grass.

Sheathing myself from the toxicity around,

I leave.
