Memory

Eyelids shut tight.
Flashes of you.
Salty water on my tongue.
Fingertips quiver.
Cold tile against my knees.
Head bent in surrender.
My untold prayer.
Quiet walls echoes the truth.
I reach out for you.
The ghost of you shudder.
Shallow breaths for your regret.
Your silence my unwanted answer.
Your deserted love too heavy.
I double over.
The pain follows.
My heart shouts for your return.
My pledge discarded.
No future in skipping heart beats.
Frozen blood stands still.
You walked.
I stayed.

Dead-end

You were a dead-end street.
I missed the sign.

My heart's darkest corner

My heart's darkest corner.
You lay there.
Tucked away to be left alone.
Your shadows dancing for attention.
I tucked you away to live freely.
You, who loved me like no other.
You, who left me hanging mid-air.
I let you see my broken self.
My past too much for you too carry.
You un carried the load,
dumped me at the edge.
Hanging on, scratching my fingers.
To get a grip.
Legs kicking to get higher.
To reach solid ground.
My heart's darkest corner.
You lay there.
Quiet and still.
That's how you'll stay.

Wine drenched heart

Wine drenched heart.
Anesthetic for bruised shadows.
At dawn my fractured self 
lets it be.
By dusk I bleed through.
At nightfall I patch me up again.
Wine drenched heart.
A temporary band-aid.
