Away

Rating: 5.0
Sitting here wondering, again
Why did I leave my heart wide open again?
Every breath leaves me with pain
Again, I say once more:
'I won't let myself love anymore'
when you said you were going to leave
my head filled up with distorted memories,
I cant breathe
Holding my breath just to see if I could wake up from this dream
I want to, want to run away
From this so called love that in exchange,
gives me kisses filled with unbearable pain
but i want to, want to fade away
like the light, when the darkness tells the sun to go away
I want to, want to be erased
So my emotions wont find me and tear this fragile display
I just want my tears to go away
Remembering the laughs that we shared
talking on the phone till way past two
the touches that only brought me closer to you
all the words that sunk into you
Like 'living with out you i could not do'
wish i could catch them all
Fill them in a Fragile glass locket
Nobody will be able to touch it
and between my hands i will crush it
Not remembering you
Its the best thing to do
Leave me here and watch me
with my cut up, blood stained hands disappear.
I want to, want to run away
From this so called love that in exchange
Gives me kisses filled with unbearable pain
But i want to, want to run away.
Like the light when the darkness tells the sun to go away
I want to, want to be erased
So my emotions wont find me and tear this fragile display
I just want the tears to go away


(I made this one up)

this feels so familiar... break ups suck but life is about moving on. for something you made up it sounds like you've been through this pain that is so unbearable and sorrowful that it makes my heart ache justing thinking about it. so much pain that it didn't hurt at all to give this poem a 10.

I loved that poem. It was everything that I am not technically, and everything that I am emotionally. The pain and sadness flew from the poem.9/10

I was really drawn into your poem, but I really doubt that you just made it up. I just read this out of the blue, and by the end of the poem starting I started to feel drama, and tense inside. Then the writer must feel quite a lot for inspiration. Very touching, so you must be reaching out.

Many times in life we wish we could run, run far away or hide from the situations and problems that we face. But, these offer only momentary relief, for the memories remain and are easily triggered to mind through past associations with places, people and things. The only remedy is time and time in itself is not a permanent eraser, only a desensitizer that will ease the intensity of the emotions and make the memories come to mind less frequently. I feel for you my friend for love is such a beautiful thing while it lasts, but when destroyed love can become a poison that runs through your veins and pollutes the mind. And although you say you made this up maybe this will offer comfort to someone precisely in this situation. You’re quite creative if you pulled this out of thin air. The things I write come from the heart and from experience. So you one up(ped) me in that regard. Keep up the solid work.
