Barbed Wire Heart

Contributed by MoonlitAngel on Saturday, 31st August 2019 @ 05:07:19 AM in AEST
Topic: selfstruggles

empty spaces that used to be lived in
the unexpected flashes, so vivid
this city screams with the silence of your absence
sweltering summer days holding your hand
memories fade and itís not what I planned
she tells me you miss me and I lose my balance

but the way it breaks my heart doesnít compare
to the fear I choke on that you might not care
the more days and weeks go by that Iím not there

and this emptiness echoes
through endless caverns composed
of a whole lifeís worth of give and take
I try so **** hard to explain

but you know I choose my words carefully
not a single line crafted arbitrarily
thereís a whole world inside of me that no one knows
seeing ghosts in the corners of my eyes
all the things I canít compartmentalize
and I think all these cracks might be starting to show

so I admit Iím just a little bit scared
of a rift I wonít be able to repair
and of those eyes seeing into my despair

bitten nails and stomach aches
and bad dreams of old mistakes
streaming tears, aches and pains come and go
I feel alone but I just stay home

itís such a clichť to say Iím in pain
to write metaphors about feelings and rain
and scream so loud about how no one understands
but it feels like setting my nerves on fire
and wrapping my heart up in barbed wire
to cut myself open, then reach for barren hands

Your poetry is always so smooth, flowing, and well crafted. Actually quite amazing.

I can relate to these feelings and imagine most can. Sorry you/'/re going through this but at least your creation is phenomenal!

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
