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

Shhh

connectnigeria.com

shush dear heart
silence your lips
your words flow
without any meaning

still your mouth
your darkness spills
with every breath
you slowly kill

hold your tongue
its sharpness wounds
no longer interested
in loving words

Walk Away

veebrowne.wordpress.com

There is no reason for me to stay
so I will just walk away
out the door and out of your life
never to bother or cause you strife.
I’ll push my feet to go and leave
feel the wounds that make me grieve
for our story is nearing its end
so I’ll go and try to mend
this heart that has finally broken
from the love you easily woken.

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.
