I lose my mind in the quiet. I've become nothing
more than an empty room the whispers
of the life that used to live there- one that creaks
to remind you of how full it used to be.
I am the light that flickers, the ceiling that leaks.
I am the unraveling patch of carpet that grows
each day. How amazing it is, to watch
The destruction of who I thought I was💫
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seated with scars 💫
"When will I see you smile again?"
"No, not like that."
"Then, like what?"
"Smile, as if your dreams are happening now. Smile, as if you had forgotten those times when you were sad. Smile, as if you already found something that makes you genuinely happy. Just, please smile."
"Maybe, not only something. But, maybe, there's also someone."
Then, she smiled. ♥️💫
Maddening to the eye,
Beauty alludes to
risks taken in vain.
I threw the lot into a fire
and burned everything away.
A realisation came-
Wore the clothes of discomfort.
A darkened memory:
It grips with its fist,
hold on with its teeth.
I know of no reprieve;
lost without a cause
to scream or name I cannot say.
My lips, sullied from the taste
That silence brings
to the lie;
The feint black smoke;
this energy, a shroud of darkness;
my face, a mirror,
an agreeable reflection.
I allow myself to be soft around you
to let go of the wall the universe built around my heart
and I am left here aching, aching for the reasurance that you grant me
and I remain yours
My name in your writing on a paper that bears witness to the good,
and it will be there until the stars fade
and the world will have to know how much we belonged to
how my hand was steady under your gaze
how the doubts in my mind quietened
And how my thundering heart slowed to the chorus of a love song and the universe will know 💫
