´╗┐Midnight Creatives #3: A True Story

Posted on Updated on

She’s desperate to leave, weak and depressed,
Slowly surrendering to her dark side.
I’m determined to keep her, to love her;
I’ll show her wondrous things of her she does not see.

Sure enough, I’ve said and done some wrong things,
But a better man I shall be all for her.
I’ll help her find herself and show her what’s real;
I’ll light the fire inside her heart that has gone dim.

Memory of July 22, 2016

Posted on Updated on

Weakening of the flesh, weakening of the soul
Lost will, lost hope, crushed dreams; an empty dark hole.
Forced on the ground- helpless and confused,
It’s been nine months now, but bruise came after bruise.

A pain in your chest, a punch in your gut,
Constricting of the lungs, deep breathes- no air.
A noise in your head, poison starts to spread
Tears well up in your eyes; they start to flow.

A memory- a gift; this memory- a curse
To remember is a nightmare during the day.
Never ending nightmare, still gruesome until now
You wonder when it’ll end, you wonder how.

When Life Hits You Hard

Posted on Updated on

Hopelessly broken, sprawled on the floor
You worry much more than you’ve ever had before.
Anxious and confused, afraid to make a move;
You avoid the crossroads, but there you are again.

It’s no wonder they say “Look before you fall.”
It may be you were never meant to be at all
Your heart has grown attached, he runs through your veins
His core never really changes when he says he’ll change.

You live your life daily doing what you do;
But inside, your heart is heavy- your mind is too.
For once you wonder if you undergo depression,
That perhaps you’ve gotten a phycological disorder.

Fairytale happy endings you used to dream about
Vanished little by little as doubt come after doubt.
Life hit you hard enough to see reality,
So all that’s left for you is practicality.

Eternal Scratches

Posted on Updated on

Permanent scratches mark my heart,

As fingernails dig into it.

Like pain and love won’t stay apart,

Each day I fall in the dark pit.

Alas! I’ve found my life time curse,

The curse that destroyed me badly.

Although I’m mended by a nurse,

I heal, but break eternally.

Reflection

Posted on Updated on

I look into the mirror,

What has happened all these years?

In sight are plastics- traitors,

The past that fills eyes with tears.

Time has made so much things change,

Sweet flowers turned to hard stones.

But your reflection stayed the same,

All this time, I should have known.
