Asante' 7d
You keep on running back to me,
You sneak into my skin,
Banging on my frail bones, shouting
“Please let me come in!”
I try to keep the blinds closed
And pretend that I’m not here,
But you wait until I yield to you
Before you disappear.
Asante' Nov 12
Yesterday, I cried.
Today I’m feeling somber,
But somewhere in the tomorrows
I’ll be smiling again.
Asante' Nov 10
Someone please take me to Dreamland.
Put me on the fastest flight,
'Cause while you slept and slumbered sweetly,
I was wide awake all night.
So if you know the way to Dreamland,
Put the address in my brain,
So I can journey on to find it,
Somewhere where my world is sane.
Asante' Nov 10
In the end,
You didn’t choose me,
And for that
I simply say
Thank you.
Asante' Nov 10
I could put make up on my face
wear perfume scents that linger
short skirts high on my thighs
have you wrapped around my finger
give you every single ounce of me
share with you all my stuff
And yet somehow always know
that I’ll never be enough
Asante' Nov 9
He walks around with a piece of me
And I doubt he even knows
That he carries a fragment of my heart
Wherever it is he goes.
I just wonder if he felt its thump
Or heard its tiny beat
If he’d return it to me carefully
So that I could feel
Complete
Asante' Nov 9
I’m not weak enough
To keep myself here
In order to feel the absence
Of absence.
