Goodbye

goodbye
it’s been one hell of a ride
we’ve run out of fuel
and now i’m taking a hike

goodbye, goodbye
no point in looking behind
we’ve crashed and burned
got nothing to hide

we’ve come this far
caked in blood and tears
surrendering to pain
it’s all that we have gained

goodbye

goodbye

Love Discarded

frail are the hands that cradle
dying bloom withered, past its prime
skin no longer velvet to the touch
pale its hues devoid of vividness
stripped of its beauty forlorn
no more intimate caresses in the morn
love bloomed fades into nothingness
while decay creeps unnoticed
robbing life from once pretty blossom
just like entrusted love discarded

it is your sadness that speaks
stirring this soul that resides in the dark
the shadows that lurk behind your eyes
are the monsters caged inside this heart
we fear, we falter, we fail, we fall
over and over, again and again
like broken records that know no end
and we kept on repeating the same mistakes
never learning, never letting go
yearning for the same touch that burns
the same dangerous love that hurts
the scars they map out the path we took
crisscrossing our hearts and soul
invisible to the eyes yet only we can feel
the depths of the wounds that healed
as time caresses the hurts we nurse
closing them yet reminding us
on how we keep on falling for the same tricks
the same sins that we wallow in
in the aftermath of our tears

The Ghost of You

www.pxleyes.com

I can feel you
at the back of my mind
Your breath sending ripples
of remembered joy
and sadness
love indescribable
and pain, yes the pain
I thought I got rid of you
yet you’re there
waiting for my eyes to close
so you can appear
in front of me
with that wicked smile
your charm, my weakness
I remember the scars
on your face
growing red as you sip
your drink
and I thought
I could kiss the pain away
heal you
in these arms
opened wide to embrace
the hurts and burdens
you carry
But I was wrong
blinded I was
with your sweetness
Now I hurt
as the illusion falls
I was broken
damaged by false hopes
the lies repeating
like a broken record
reverberating
chastising me
for believing too quickly
because there was nothing
not even from the start
And so I shelved my dreams
erased what I could
images and words
that connect me to you
yet a ghost of you remains
living in my darkness
fingers trailing
a path so familiar
to the heart once laid down
exposed to your whims
shuddering as memories
push their way to the surface
only to fade
like you

Have you ever listened to the silence
of your thoughts that seem to reverberate
eerily into the darkness that touches
the innermost chambers of your trembling heart?

Do you fear the truth hidden within
the mist that forms behind your eyes
as you stare longingly into the stars
where you sent your whispered prayers?

Do you feel the thunderous sound
of your raging, beating heart
as it attempts to break free
from its rigid prison?

Would you even pick up the pieces
of the remains of your former self
shattered by promises broken
as it litter the ground?

Would you even breathe love
when the scars you bear reflect
the rugged paths you’ve taken
just to find the warmth you crave?

Do you even dare to live
knowing that pain will come
enveloping you in its familiar embrace
seeping into your tattered soul?

Fire in the Hearth

www.vangoghgallery.com

by Vincent Van Gogh

I seem to be missing something
that feeling of magical bliss
surrounded by the warmth of love
how come it has already gone?

The coldness has slipped in
the fire in the hearth has died
the wind has scattered the remains
there’s nothing left, not even a memory.

How to ignite the fire that once burned
bringing back the warmth I crave the most?
Would the flames return to brightly blaze
or will it just be the ashes that remain?

Scarred Heart

fineartamerica.com

Will the scars fade from the heart over time?
Leaving flesh unmarked and whole once more?
Where shattered dreams are no longer broken,
but reshaped into something more beautiful than before?
Will there be hope instilled in the spaces between,
filling this empty heart until fit to bursting?
Will the silence break until words can flow,
washing away the heartaches left by loneliness?
Will there be another reason to let love in,
and let it burn away the scars that mar the heart?

Drifting

www.deviantart.com

 

set adrift with hardly a care,
unspoken words left me bare,
cutting deeply unto skin and soul,
this heart now has a hole.
can’t find a way to stop the bleeding,
this gaping wound finds no healing,
in silence i love, in silence i suffer,
drifting to nowhere, what can you offer?
to stop the hurt and mend what’s broken,
would you say the words left unspoken?

If This Will be The Last

If this will be the last
I will lay my heart at your feet
with all its scars and hurts
its hopes and dreams
everything I have to offer
to you I will give.

If this will be the last
I will not bind you with tears
but with love I’ll set you free
no words are needed to be said
you can turn around and walk away.

If this will be the last
I will not ask you to stay
nor beg or plead on bended knees
but watch you with these brown eyes
searing your image in my mind.

If this will be the last,
leave me with happier memories,
ones I can go back to time and again,
just to remind me that you were real,
and had the chance to call you mine.

Forget

 

Forget it.
Forget the dreams.
Forget the promises.
Forget the sweet nothings.
Forget the embraces.
Forget the messages.
Forget the moments.
Forget the kisses.
Forget us.
Forget me.
