From Your Lips


enchanting words that spill from your lips longing to be kissed,
wrap their arms around a heart seeking the ultimate bliss.
yet these words that pour forth from those mesmerizing lips,
transform themselves into knives that wound so deep.
as these sharp steeled words slowly slice their way through,
tendrils of blood slowly ooze from shallow wounds inflicted.
all that was asked was a love filled with the beauty of innocence,
yet the words that resonate from thy lips possessed magic that paralyzes.
caught up in a web of utter lies disguised in honeyed tongue,
it’s no wonder this heart fell in love with the idea of love that you professed.
using words that sway and hypnotize, there is no doubt that you’ve captured many hearts this way.
and here you’ve caught another one that clings to hope,
that the love it will receive won’t hurt it anymore.
but it seems those enchanting words that roll from your lips,
are nothing more but nightmares enveloped in lines so sweet.

Muted rainfall falling on broken bits of glass
shattered by a wailing heart that lost all hope.
Moaning and hurting surrounded by chaos and debris
heart bleeding for love no longer given.
Sorrow filled eyes turned towards the heaven
that weeps with her and her broken heart,
trying to assuage her soul bereft of life and love.
Rainfall trying to wash away the tears that fall
and the pain that clings to her body and mind,
trying to soothe her sadness and madness away.
Trembling from exhaustion and the cold seeping
into its soul of souls that tries to cling to hope,
even the rain can’t stop the loneliness of this
abandoned and used up heart stricken on the ground.

Private Hell


Burning letters, burning dreams
love put on hold clouding her eyes.
Tears do fall yet remain unnoticed,
each drop desperately clinging to her
long dark lashes.
Blurred lines and visions is all she sees,
trying to retain a semblance of heaven
in her own private hell.

Love No More

No wonder they say love hurts.
Its very bite goes through and through.
It cuts deep within and leaves a hole,
an emptiness that cannot be filled.
The bleeding may stop but that void will remain,
a stark reminder of all that’s been given,
in return for a love that she hopes won’t be forsaken.
Yet pain has prevailed and in her heart of hearts she
she cannot go back to what was before,
because her broken heart can’t love no more.

Tell Me It’s Over

Tell Me It’s Over

Falling for you is madness I cannot take
this feeling I have to hold for my own sake.
I’ve been here before and got so hurt
there is no need for you to be so curt.

Just tell me now if it’s over or not
I won’t complain nor beg till I rot.
I am here to ask and nothing more
to keep my heart safe and not be sore.

If this story of ours is fading fast
I’ll chalk it to another lesson that has to last.
For heartaches and broken promises are already old
like the lies I’ve heard and have been told.

You see, I don’t need another empty page in my book.
I’ve always thought you’ll last longer and not be spooked.
But it seems you’re just another memory fading
that I won’t cry over nor feel any longing.
