Press pause

image

 

Press pause
to catch my breath.

Press pause
to clear my head.

Press pause
to see things as they are.

Press pause
to analyze my feelings.

Press pause
to keep my heart safe from harm.

Press pause
to let the tears cleanse my soul.

Press pause
to find some composure.

Press pause
to shift my focus.

Press pause
to find strength to move on.

Let’s be friends

image

 

You chased me.
You made me feel amazing.
You made me think
what we had
was the best you ever had.

I actually thought so too
then you tossed me aside.
Now you want to be friends.
You say I’m your best friend.

You say this is
the best friendship
you ever had.
But how am I
supposed to be friends
with someone who
made me feel used?

This is not a friendship,
I was just a placeholder
for the void you needed filled.
I was just there to give you
what you couldn’t get from her.

This is not fun, it’s pure agony.
It’s time for me to move on.
It’s time for me to realize
you used me.
It’s time for me to admit
you made a fool of me.

It’s time for you to know
what you did is not ok.
It’s time for you to understand
you took advantage
of my brokenness.

You can’t break my heart
then expect me to be smile
at all your little jokes.
This isn’t funny, it’s pure hell.
My broken heart is real.

No, we cannot be friends.

Not a good idea

image

 

Beef stew at 12am
Was probably
Not a good idea.

But when heartache
Takes away the appetite,
Comfort food fills the void.

It doesn’t judge.
It simply does its job.
It understands!

It’s all we have left…

image

 

When the love fades away
All we have left is our words.

So we write to ease the pain
And vow never to love again.

But when the hurt subsides
We rise with hope.

Jaded and scarred we move forward
Because all we want is to be loved.

Losing my mind

image

I locked my self out of my home on Friday.
I had to go to the mgmt office to get a key.
This is something I just never do.
I had my lunch bag but left my pocketbook.

This is frustrating.
I’ve been misplacing things a lot lately.
Many changes in my life
Have left me emotionally frayed.

The stress is taking a physical toll.
And now the mental effects are showing.
I feel Iike I’m losing my mind.
I’m scared!

This is not like me.
I’ve never been this physically shaken.
I’ve never been this mentally frayed.
I’m trying to find clarity.
I need to get over this but I just feel lost.

I’m not good at pretending.
I’m not good at faking happiness.
I can’t sell hopefulness in the face of doubt.
I’m not good at smiling through the pain.

I’m sorry if that doesn’t sit right with you.
I’m sorry I’m not my upbeat self.
I’m just struggling.
I’m not used to this uncertainty.

I’m just being real.
I’m just being myself.
I’m sorry if that’s not who you came to see.
But that’s all I know how to be.

I’m sorry…

Sarcasm or Irony?

image

 

How can he honestly
Wish her happiness
When he’s the one
Causing her pain?

Is he trying to be funny?
Is he being sarcastic?
Is he just clueless?
Is it all just empty words?

Is he aware he just became
Like all the others who hurt her?
She thought he was different.
How ironic!
