Sometimes Alone in a Room

Posted in Emotions, Love & Pain on May 18, 2015 by Poetic Flow

When I am alone in the room,
And the windows are closed,
I sit to myself in silence
Wondering what the world would
Be like without out.

Your words hurt,
Leavings wounds that never heal.
My mind stores everything you say,
Becoming constant reminders
Of the cruel side of who you are.

You make me want to hide
In the shadows,
Making me feel I am not
Worthy of this life.
And my body yearns
For love and affection
Which you take away
From me freely.

I walk out the door
Envisioning what it would be like
To never come back
Thinking that
Perhaps we are better off living
Worlds apart,
No longer able to take
The damage of your
Spiteful tongue.

When I am alone in the room,
I tend to find peace within myself
When you are not there.
It soothes the fear that rises
Up within me…
A fear that you will cut me down
If I speak out of term.
If I make a mistake.

You do not accept my flaws
Or my imperfection.
This is what breaks my heart
Beyond anything else in life.

You expect me to provide you
Shelter and meals
To supply your comfort of living,
While I am hurting deep down inside.

When I am alone in the room,
And you are not there,
I find myself praying for the day
For you to leave
And never come back.
I will cry for a moment,
But those tears will turn
To tears of relief
Because I will finally be free
Of this pain I carry.

My Freedom

Posted in Emotions, Love & Pain, Love & Relationships, Pain on May 18, 2015 by Poetic Flow

Tattooed to the skin of my body
Is the freedom of life.
I have walked one hundred miles
To escape the confusion
Of you
And your hurtful tongue
That cuts me down.

You do not control
The ground to which I walk,
The air to which I breathe.
You have no control over
The morning glory
That brightens my day
At the rising sun.

I am not held captive
To your amazing grace
Because I see right
Through your layers of insecurities.
No longer am I bound
By the pretentiousness
Of your idealistic world.

I spread my wings like
The butterfly I am,
Escaping on the winds of dawn
To find refuge in the comfort
Of my new home called life.

To your own deception and quiet calm,
I leave you to wallow in an
Unspoken guilt
To live without me to use
As your vessel and tool
Of mental anguish.

Goodnight sweet prince,
As our kingdoms part ways
Into the night where we once
Danced the minuet
Under the silver moon.

Without Perfection

Goodnight Lover

Posted in Love & Pain on November 20, 2013 by Poetic Flow

Goodnight sweet lover,
We’ve been on this ride
For quite a long time.
Somewhere along the way,
In the years of our lives,
Love changed its mind.
Excuse me for a moment
While I make you hate me
To make you let me go.

In the end,
You will realize
That I will have saved you from days and nights
Of unnecessary tears and a broken heart,
Which neither one of us are strong enough
To survive.

If we stay on this road of loving each other,
Our worlds will surely collide.
Hang up your heart
At the edge of sunset,
Go down the boulevard of freedom
To the top of Amazing Grace
And watch the early days of our romance
Go down in a blaze of glory.

Goodnight, sweet lover,
To the spell you held over me.
Goodnight to blissful days of
Dancing in your shadows.
I’ll keep a lingering memory of you
Locked away in the far back of my mind
Where all my cherished are quietly kept.

In this love affair
We rejoiced in the love and fought in the hate,
We danced through the joy and cried through the pain,
We connected through the happiness and hid from the shame
When the realization was clear
We were going nowhere.
We drank to seeing each other leave
Through separate doors.
And I didn’t love you no more
The way I had once before.

Time reached its end for us,
And yet we’re still standing
Trying to hold on to something
That more sexually intense.
You took me to Heaven and back.
And with no other have I experienced
All that you have given me.
Such an amazing ride
We both have taken,
Goodnight sweet lover,
Tell me you’ll always love me,
I’ll bury all my regrets,
I won’t hate you one day.
Let me walk out of your life
With my head held high.
