Poems of Love’s Consequence

Forgetful

I can’t remember,

It protects my heart,

The day you tore our world apart;

It was all a dream,

All an illusion;

A blissful cancer,

A heavenly contusion.

 

Faithless

I believe in me,

Do you?

I’d give you a mirror

But you wouldn’t have a clue;

Settle for less

And you’ll get less –

Give up your dreams

And enjoy your mess.

 

Suicide

You chose death,

You throw yourself away

For a superficial play!

It’s too late…

Goodbye –

You’ve smothered that

Sparkle inside my eye.

 

Lies

I never knew you,

A perfect dream;

A toxic nightmare,

Abrupt and foreseen –

Your lips lie

And I continue to die;

I dreamt you up,

A fictitious lie.

 

Who

I don’t know you,

You’re beyond a mystery,

It seems like yesterday

Was heavenly history –

I’m caught in a riptide

But I think I’ll swim;

I threw my love away

To reach

The surface again.

 

Ocean

The ocean erodes the sand

As you let go of my hand,

A piece of me is taken

And the current is mistaken;

A bond was broken

With words unspoken –

I won’t fight the tide

Because I’ll drown,

But that doesn’t mean

It’ll erase my frown.

 

Kill

You smothered me,

Suffocated my flame,

Thanks to you

My heart will

Never be the same.

 

Scarred

I fear the sight of you,

My heart,

It skips;

And that is true –

I live blindly because

You killed me;

You took away what thrilled me:

Our love –

The storm comes and goes,

It’s within my soul

I’ll forever know.

 

Easy

It was so easy

For you to say goodbye,

So easy to watch me die;

It’s as if you never existed –

A precious dream

And then a nightmare

I was gifted.

 

The One

You are the greatest

Of them all,

You caught my heart

And made me fall;

A perfect picture

And shattered glass –

An inanimate delusion,

That doesn’t last.

 

Elements

The cold rain fuels me

As your burning fire

Cools me –

You betrayed our

Sacred pact,

You spoke false words

And took them back;

You’re dead!

I don’t want you –

Let my success

Forever haunt you.

 

Remember

I remember the first time

After we kissed,

The heavenly feeling,

An amorous bliss;

Though your poison destroyed me

And these memories hang me on the

Void tree;

A heavy branch

I can’t seem to break,

Opening my heart to you,

What a mistake –

You left me hanging –

All the leaves of tears,

Dried up memories,

So painful,

The veins of the years –

I think back to the day

That we were one,

And now I write

To the

Invisible none.

 

My Dream

I met you in my dreams

And how real it felt –

Now I reflect

And my eyes begin to welt;

I still seek reassurance,

So much so I blame myself;

As I walk the halls of familiar faces,

Fearing the steps of familiar places,

I look to the swinging swing –

There’s only one;

It gives off a haunting ring

Buried with so much fun;

You were stubborn

But you saw the truth,

You spit out the poison

And craved your youth –

I was blinded, confused, and without reason,

I’ve been counting on my fingers

The change in the seasons;

Days go by and I continue to cry,

Wishing for you to come back,

To never die –

Just like in reality

You were confused and stubborn,

But in this dream

You were challenged with prior choices

To be yearned –

You ask to be with me

And I see right through you;

I speak to the ghost of a girl I once knew;

How you’ve fooled me

As hopeful thoughts ruled me –

The world would end before we danced as friends –

A calloused nightmare

As I wake up to the girl

That was once here.

 

Partner

I sleep with my words

Because they’re all I have;

These feelings and memories,

The good with the bad –

You’re everything to me,

The key to my soul;

It is within you

That I am whole –

The wanderers only visit

But they can’t seem

To live it.
