Waiting…


Waiting for the crash

The smash 

The impact

The wreckage

Waiting for the mortar

To explode

The meteor

To strike

The crocodile

To bite

Waiting…

Anticipating…

Annihilation…

For flouting every rule I ever made

Losing You

 

Razor blades rip

At the edges of my soul

Tearing it further apart

With each movement

No matter how I try

Elastoplast or stitches

Cannot fix me this time 

The blade has plunged too deep

Seems there was a heart 

In the abyss

A black heart

…now haemhorraging 

Remorselessly 

To its bitter bloodied end

Abyss

  

Extraneous distraction  

Bit of fun, for a time

Temporary intervention

In the thoughts of my mind

Momentary affection 

Maybe, some kind of…

Connection?

Or perhaps just

Diversion

Infill of time…

(For you)

All alone and empty

Maybe deservedly

Blood-torn eyeballs

Aching and blurred

Thought it would be worth

Those moments mindless, free

Now I’m stuck in this abyss 

Deep inside of me

This poem comes with an apology! Not my normal genre… It’s possible I may actually been possessed! 😉

.

You… 

You touch my face

I shiver 

Look into my eyes

I can’t breathe

Stroke my arm 

And warmth

Pools 

From the depths

Radiating

Rising

Enveloping 

Every inch of my soul

I try 

To shake it off

But you…

Make me feel

In a moment

Like the sun, moon, stars

You

Make me want 

To stay there forever 

You

Make me ‘feel’.

In judgement you sit… 

  

Who gave you the right to judge?

Sit on high in scornful disdain?

From your province of perfection

With your flawlessly untainted life

Judgement will be your downfall

Can’t see beyond the end of your 

upturned nose

Won’t scratch the surface

Glimpse the tortured soul

Don’t want to…

Why should you?

Why would YOU be wrong?

Hardship?

Heart-torn?

Have you ever known?

Manners over honesty?

Piety over truth?

Oh what a life…

But who am I to judge?

Let Go…

  

Your face 

Lit up, bright

Smiling

I can’t watch

Love shining

Don’t need eyes

To feel 

The intangible

Emotion 

A sabre to my heart

Lungs collapse

Futility overwhelms

As I stand mute 

Reflecting

My broken body

I realise 

Love is not enough

…and I know

I need

To let you go…
