Haunted Past

As she sits alone and patiently waits

 

She wonders, “How much more can I take?”

 

Constant fights and hurtful words

 

She asks herself, “Is this what I deserve?”

 

People make mistakes, say things they don’t mean

 

She just wants to wake up from this horrible dream

 

She wants to go back in time and change the past

 

She asks, “Isn’t love supposed to last?”

 

She’d take everything back and wipe the slate clean

 

But then she wonders, “Would things be different if he didn’t leave?”

 

He hurt her, caused her so much pain

 

The anger she felt, she couldn’t contain

 

Being with him made terrible feelings surface

 

He made her feel flawed, far from perfect

 

Looking back, she knows it was for the best that he left

 

It took some time, but now it’s easy for her to accept

Frail Hearts

Wanting to use something as an escape

 

Feeling like no one can relate

 

Faking a smile to mask the pain

 

Pretending to be happy is just one tiring game

 

Doubting yourself, second guessing your worth

 

Feeling like nothing will ever work

 

Lying in bed, crying yourself to sleep

 

Life’s a game you can’t seem to beat

 

Keeping everything bottled up

 

Making sure no one will call your bluff

 

Just wanting to feel the same

 

Wishing to never again feel pain

 

Alone

Being alone is either a hit or miss

 

Sometimes it feels like hell, other times like pure bliss

 

The peace and quiet can be serene and delightful

 

Sometimes it’s like the whole world is being spiteful

 

Most days it feels great to be all alone

 

Then there are times you need to break free of your comfort zone

 

Sometimes you can’t bear the feeling of being lonely and secluded

 

Yet the idea of being with someone seems so convoluted

 

With thoughts of loneliness that can’t be suppressed

 

This constant need to be alone is something you begin to detest
