All The Bad Advise You Ever Gave Me - And Every Truth I Ignored

Posted by soulconstance , 09 August 2013 · 98 views

How can I push back the stinging rain
like thunderbolts arching inside of me,
and I pray to Poseidon (as if he can hear my plea)
that the rivers flood
till the entire world
is writhing at "sea level"
with me.

Then I wake to realize that other beings require the sun
and every morning epiphany
that I have danced around.


I have no desire to h...


You Had So Much Strength

And she said,
"You run away so easily
like you were a stag on the wind"
so gracefully we flew
into our own deception.

"One day those glasses will fall off"
and sure enough
with the glorious sunset,
the volcano erupted
deep and silent

is let it eat me away
till death
under it's pressure
(or love, as they say)
((none of them ever loved me
I was just a m...

Did you forget what I gave you?
My shattered wings frozen to your lips,
fluttered in my mind as you sleep -
little doilies resting on the coffee table she says
they make the world a little more worth
throwing your sadness into a little jar
so that you can tuck it away into the darkness
where it can grow into a friend
that gnaws as your heartstrings,

I can't believe it's you
hiding behind the bushes
late at night with sunglasses on.
Because the reality is
that it's truly you
in my room at night,
sneaking through the window,
the stranger in the dark
with a ski-mask on. You're:
the people who ran the daycare
I went to as a young child,
the father of my best friend growing up

Trigger Warning

Warning: Some of my poetry and prose may be triggering. I write just about as much about survivor issues as I do about love.
Please keep yourself safe.
