Over And Over

Contributed by MoonlitAngel on Monday, 26th February 2018 @ 06:47:09 PM in AEST
Topic: LostLove

where do I begin
your voice plays on repeat
over and over
and over
skipping record spins
becoming obsolete
taking, it`s aching
I`m breaking

but hitting bottom has a funny way of raising you back up
I kept drinking all your poisons out of flimsy paper cups
and waking up on concrete floors has gotten really old again
so I will walk out of this place and meet you where the trail unbends

how do I let go
of memories on repeat
sticking, wound-licking
and tricking
painted in shadows
on wistful windowseats
warnings of stormings
and mournings

your monumental mountains towered over me into the clouds
impenetrable rock just cut my flesh until I cried out loud
summer heat did hiss and boil, then lightning cracked and earth froze over
head left spinning, cornered in by hostile forces taking over

taking breaths again
learning to start over
over and over
one more time
taking steps again
stop to smell the clover
over and over
get it right this time

Its not like you can turn down the volume. Great write.

Concluding with hope. Good sway to this poem. Self examination can be tuff but worth it.
