Wish not granted (yet)

image

 

I wanted it
to be over today.
I wanted April 17 2017
to be the day I was set free.

Free of you.
Free of the torture
I had to relive daily
in my minds eye.

Free of all the pain
you caused our family
all those years ago.

Seeing your face
made me relive the horror.
Hearing your voice
stirred up 6 years of emotions.

Your twisted words
revealed that
your disturbed mind
still needs healing.

I wanted it
to be over today,
but it’s not.

Back To One

image

 

Slowly find her way
Back to the place where she began.
Slowly finding her way
Back to a life without her best friend.

Slowly finding her way
Back to a world that’s incomplete.
Slowly finding her way
Back to one,  no more ‘we’.

Obsolescence

image

 

The music
Has lost its meaning.
The rhyme
Has lost its reason.

The smile
Is gone from her face.
The memory of him
Can’t be replaced.

What was all
Of the effort for?
Why build a foundation
They now ignore?

None of this
Makes a bit of sense.
How to move on
While stuck in past tense?

Can’t shake the feeling
Of abstract existence.
Not sure where she belongs
Inside obsolescence.

Indifference cuts deep

image

It hurts to know
That in her darkest hour
No one thought to ask
If she was ok.

It hurts to know
That in her darkest hour
Her words  were just
For their entertainment.

It hurts to know
That in her darkest hour
Their indifference proved
Her loneliness was real.

Wishing on a star

image

 

Twinkle twinkle little star,
I know you hear her Grieving.

Twinkle twinkle little star,
I know you hear her Wishing.

Twinkle twinkle little star,
I know you hear her Praying.

Twinkle twinkle little star,
I know you hear her Hoping.

Skip ahead to Spring

image

 

Turn off the lights.
Close the blinds.
Crawl under the covers.

The holidays are way too hard.
Valentines is even worse.
She’d like to skip ahead to Spring.

She’s ready for fresh flowers.
Ready for a new beginning.
She can’t stand all this pain.

Behind closed doors

image

 

Her melancholy days
Escalated into agonizing nights
Cycling viciously with no remorse.

Bottled up feelings
Kept under forced smiles,
Erupted behind closed doors.

Her ravaged body
And tormented mind
Gave way under the pressure.

Tears flowed uncontrollably,
Then sleep came rather unexpectedly.
It was her only escape.
