You didn’t let go of me

You kept telling me to go back, that I shouldn’t be out here, in this wilderness, that it wasn’t safe. And yet, contradictory to your words, you didn’t let go of my hand, you didn’t let go of me. You held onto me as if I was the very gravity that pulled you to the…

I wish we had more time

The inevitability of what’s to come, makes me feel so helpless. I know that I can’t and that I shouldn’t, and that I have no right, to stop you from going. A part of me wants you to go back, far away from all this cynicism. However, the other part of me, the part that…

I know I shouldn’t

I know that we’re just delaying the inevitable, and that you’ll have to leave soon. I know that I should be ready and prepared and used to it, by now. But I still feel like the air has been sucked out of my lungs at the very mention of you going away. I know that…

What if?

What if I open my heart up to you? Would you embrace it, or would you demolish the leftover pieces, just like everyone else did? Would you accept its faults and insecurities, along with its kindness and compassion, or would you take advantage of its innocence, and then leave me to fend for myself? Would…

Tore down my own self

“Why am I not enough?” I used to wonder, every single moment of every single day. It seemed as though, everyone would be happier, everything would be nicer, if only I wouldn’t be a part of it. Everything wrong seemed to be because of me, blame upon blame, I showered upon myself. Ruthlessly and cold…

Your Name

Your name is still my favorite. Hearing your name still brings a smile on my face and yet, it also terrifies me. Hearing your name awakens the dormant chaos that resides deep within me, which sometimes seems big enough to consume me, to destroy me, and all I can do in that moment, is to…

Let’s just stay together

Let’s get high and never come back down. Let’s go climb that mountain which I can see from my window, and carve our names out, on the bark of the tallest tree, with a heart around it. Let’s go out on a walk on roads with canopy, and take the long way back, and talk…

Silver Lining to My Dark Cloud

Falling… but I don’t want to fall. Waiting… I don’t know how long I can wait. Praying… All my prayers have you. Trying… To be worthy of you. Silver lining… I hope I am to your dark cloud, as you are to mine. P.S.- What did you think of this poem? Share your thoughts below!

Never Mine to Lose

You don’t love me and that’s okay. I didn’t expect you to. Somewhere deep inside, I always knew that I wasn’t capable of your love. It just hurts, knowing that I never had you. You were never mine to lose. But it’s okay. It’s okay if you’re not mine; ’cause I am yours, always will…

My Unrequited Love

You say that you care, but your actions tell me otherwise. You say that I do matter, but I always feel like an option. You say that you need me, but you’re seldom there when I need you. You say that you love me, then tell me, why do I feel like my love is…
