This poem is a result of a themed challenge… Enjoy
How did it all end in silence?How did I end up buried somewhere
Below the gothic city of your darkened
Promises? Broken nails and bloodied
Lips, I dug myself out of the grave you
Buried me within. I’m torn and bruised.
I’m painted in all shades of Black and blue.
A million lifetimes Filled with shards of glass. A million lifetimes of a story that
Will never end. Debris and dust.
Ash and wood. Haunted cities and
broken smiles. All grey. All icy blue.
All forgotten like it all never existed.
And here I am burning, dying, breaking
Into thousands of pieces.
Will this be the end? Will the darkness
Sway and lose its grip on me?
Your hand in mine feels like glass.
Jagged edged and cold.
Your heart to mine feels harsh and vague.
Your face is a million light years away.
And here I am below the dying sun
Without you. Mourning it all, forever.
Searching and waiting for it all to
Not end in silence.
Hoping for it all to be forgotten.
But I know you are no longer mine.
And you know we are on different paths,
Have different fairytales. It all ends here.
You and I, not hand in hand.
You and I with two different fates.
You and I,
but there are no you and I…
For you and I are strangers.. Forever.
