Unbreak Me

Unbreak Me

I never expected you to be

the one to come along and

unbreak me

I was far too damaged

 

I wanted from you nothing

more than friendship,

loyalty, trust

And…

No further damage

 

It took me months to trust you

with my damaged psyche and soul

It took you five seconds and one

hurtful word to destroy

friendship…

loyalty…

trust…

And to break my cracked

fragile pieces that were

yet unbroken

The pieces I held most

precious

Five seconds to lose all

I had gained after years

of partial healing

Five seconds for me to

lose trust in everyone

and realize I would never

be anything but

Broken…

Too Much – Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 32

2 Comments

Prompt for the week of 3/13/16

“If you could go back and change just one thing about your life, would you? and if you did, would that change make your life better? Or would that change ultimately break your heart? or break the heart of another? would you choose an entirely different path? or would you change just one thing? just one moment – one moment that you always wanted back.”
~ Lucas Scott

Too Much

I have always been

the one to wear my

heart on my sleeve

The one who

cared too much…

loved too much…

became involved

more than others

in my life

 

I have tried over

and over again not

to care…

to love…

to become involved…

but it seems my

nature to do so

 

I want to go

back in time

And

be the hard one…

the cold one…

the one who does

the hurting not

the one being hurt

 

My life would have

taken so many

different turns

so many different

paths

Maybe leading

to ultimate loneliness

But …

Keeping me from

being used…

being broken…

being ignored…

being an after thought

 

I would be a

different person

had I not given so

much more than

I ever received…

Better …

Worse …

Who knows …

Always Open …

My downfall …

Or is it …

Always Open …

Open to new people…

Ideas…

Opportunities…

Too trusting of these

Always thinking

the best of others

the best of opportunities

Yet …

My open trust has led to

pain …

heartache…

and being taken

advantage of by  those

who prey on the

trust of people like me

What Breaks Us …

What Breaks Us …

I have been broken so often

in my life that there is

nothing left to break

 

What breaks a person?

Lack of trust?

No loyalty?

Love gone wrong?

All of these …

Yet…

What broke me every

single time was a

broken promise…

and the memories that

person created in my life

 

The broken promise creates

the crack in my soul and the

residual memories finalize

the break …

the broken heart…

the shattered soul…

the lack of trust…

 

I no longer trust anyone

That is my only protection

I believe no one because

words are empty promises

unless actions back them up

 

So…

If I believe and trust no one

I will no longer be disappointed …

Broken …

The safety feature for my soul …

Understanding…

 

So many questions …

Why do we not know …

Why do we not really understand …

Can there be answers …

 

In the words of David Mitchell:

“The healthy can’t understand

the emptied, the broken.”

So how can we …

The emptied …

The broken …

Understand anything at all?

Writing Outside the Lines … Prompt 14

If I Let You In …

I am unsure …

Time is not

on my side

I stand outside

waiting for

something…

anything…

But …

The past has

not been kind

 

My life…

My heart…

My soul…

My everything…

Is fragile

 

I cannot go

through more

hurt…

pain…

disappointment…

 

I want to trust again

But …

I cannot

 

If I let you in

there are no

guarantees things

will not turn out

the same

No guarantees

I will not be

broken again

There are so few

pieces of me left

intact …

I just cannot

open that door …

Trust … Broken

Trust…Broken

Once trust is gone

Broken …

It can never be

Repaired

 

Whether friend …

family …

OR

lover …

Broken Trust

is just that

Broken

His Secret … Day 2 of April PAD

5 Comments

His Secret…

Locked away in

His heart

At first she

Felt special…

Adored…

Cherished…

Loved…

Only to realize

She was being

Hidden from everyone…

His secret…

To use…

Abuse…

Take advantage of…

Lie to…

And…

Ignore…

What once felt

Precious…

Soon became

Her pain…

Humiliation…

Embarrassment…

As he unfolded

Her heart and soul

To break her into

A million pieces that

Could never find

Their way home…

Nothing

Leave a comment

Nothing

Can a broken

heart continue

to be broken?

 

Can the shattered

pieces turn to dust?

 

Lost…

Numb…

Why?

 

The emptiness

becomes deeper…

Stronger…

 

Leaving her feeling

Nothing …

For Michael…

Shots fired
A young boy
Dead…
Needlessly
 
The decision given
NO…
Hearts broken
Souls rendered
Deep in pain
 
The crowd protests
Peacefully… 
Until…
provoked
 
Fires rage
Emotions are high
 
When will 
The HATE
END…

*NOTE: Regardless of how you feel about the decision regarding the shooting of Michael Brown, a young man died needlessly at the hands of someone sworn to protect and defend.  This is the tip of the iceberg nation wide … things must change.
