Abrasive #Poetry

She acted as if she had thick skin

Not allowing them to see how their words stuck to her

Even though they were stamped hard against her skin

Their ink slowly began to ooze

Filling her pores

Seeping into her skin

Lacing her blood cells

Sending the putrid thoughts to her mind

Snaking around her confidence and optimism

Lacing them with venomous words

Having them play over in her mind

As a song stuck on  repeat

Not be able to fend off the cold, painful embrace

Of the hate and lies

Her light dimmed

The darkness began its feast

Release #Poetry

Arm stretched

Tea sipped

Headphones on

Beats pumping in music

She set the tone for her trance

And she embraced it

Ideas musing

Words combining

Linking together to show her creativity

She never edited herself

Letting her truth

Her soul

Pour out onto the screen

Writing is her digital therapy

Nothing before has set her free

Shattered #Poetry

We were happy once

Then the arguments came

Rearing their obnoxious head over every disagreement

The name calling

The lewd words

But you still said you loved me

We would fix things, grow together

Until one day

You grew apart from me

Walked away so casually

Shattering my heart even more

I cry alone

Tears you can never see

I’m lost in my grief

Glue won’t fix this endless puzzle of broken pieces

The fact is

You walked out with a big piece of me
