Fix

I didn’t want you to fix me

I just wanted you 

You held my hand through the initial storm

Then far away your heart flew 

I didn’t need you to mend 

My tortured mind and fractured heart

I just wanted to be greeted with your smile 

And devinity at each day’s start

Blank

I’m reminded by the bleak

& the blank

Of the sky

As it starkly juxtaposes 

The chaos

Inside my heart

Even after a storm

There’s hope

Ghostly

As the dust dances

In the wake of the morning

I’m humbled by its 

Tenderness

As it lightly 

Caresses the air

Around my skin

Ghostly

Ghost

Whilst I still have to see you 

Every day

Every moment 

Will keep you 

Ghost

To

Me

Of what we were

The happiness

We 

Had

And how 

You let me

Feel

Good enough 

Thanks

For taking that away 

Too

My heart

My hope

My love

My self worth

And my delight 

I loved you

Worse

You let me

F

A

L

L

In 

Love

With you

I forgive your heart

But 

I won’t

Forget

How you 

Let me

Feel,

As surely

As

You

Let me 

F

A

L

L

.

I was always real

Always full

Always 

Wholeheartedly

Yours.

Yours,

Faithfully,

Sweetheart.

But life

As they say

Goes 

On…

Morning breaks the night
Shards of colour in the light
Spreading hope and inspiring delight
In that brief moment there’s no fight
Firey waves through clouds ignite
It’s the morning, the day, a welcome sight

As it was

Everybody fooled
Except the two who really care
Caught in the lie
Stumbling through synthetic days
Playing the game
Of as it was
All too well.

Too many words
Caught in limbo
Contorted between
Unspoken & wished unsaid
My consolation;
We both play the game
Of as it was
All too well.

Hope

Hope dances
In the breath between
Desire & despair

She trips the balance
Delicately
Enticingly pirouetting
Between lie & love

‪Her ballet ribboned shoes‬
‪Tread tentatively‬
‪Tiptoes & eggshells‬
‪Like fractured glass‬

‪In precarious dreams‬
‪She leads triumphantly‬
