The madness within

image

 

Trying to focus.
Nothing makes sense.
Writing poems by hand.
Scribbles on a scrap of paper.
Just letting the words pour out.
The pen is the only thing
That can make sense
Of the madness within.

Poetry

When will she ever learn?

image

 

All she needs is love
But she keeps looking
In all the wrong places.

When will she ever learn?

She let him whisper sweet nothings.
She let him captivate her heart.
She let him into her mind and soul.

When will she ever learn?

She gave him all her love.
He promised her the world.
He discarded her when ‘reality’ struck.

When will she ever learn?

She chose to believe in a lie.
She was looking for a fairytale
That was never meant to be.

When will she ever learn?

False hope is a dangerous thing.
He couldn’t love her the way she needed.
She did this to herself.

When will she ever learn?

Poetry

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!

Poetry

She’s broken…

image

 

She finally took a shower.
She was bundled up
Under the covers
In a messy heap
For what seemed like days.

The tears fell like rain
Soothing her aching soul,
As did the water
Calming her trembling body.

Her head hurts.
She needs to rest.
She needs to escape this pain.
She needs to sleep.
