Locked

 

For my protection

For my safety

I have always created

Personal locks

 

I think of them as

the entry to my

personal space

 

A barrier between

me and the harsh

realities of the

outside world

 

Only I have the key

Only I can open

that space

 

Having been

wounded..

broken…

And …

Destroyed …

one too many times

My locks are the

only way to protect

not only my soul

but my sanity …

Clarity

Most of us go through life

thinking everything we

hear and see is the truth

that people are basic

good and never something

other than they seem

 

When that view of someone

suddenly…

unexpectedly…

we are not only surprised

to be blinded sided

But…

we are deeply hurt

Then…

Angered to the depths

of our soul …

Heartbroken to the point

there can never be

Trust in that person

 

When time and events

are reviewed we realize

the clues were there

day by day,

week by week,

And…

month by month

Which gives that

release of hurt and

pain and produces

the final moment of

CLARITY…

 

 

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 …

Can You …

Can You …

Into the darkness

Your silence is

Deafening …

What is not said

speaks volumes

and words I

don’t want to

hear

 

My broken heart

is silent …

You never take the

time to listen to

what it is saying …

It screams and

you are deafened

to the noise

 

Over time …

Caring no longer

exists …

Hope is an illusion

And …

Words and

Promises mean

nothing …

Forgotten…

Forgotten

Out of sight…

Out of mind…

 

Totally ignored…

Forgotten…

Not even considered…

No thoughts…

 

This has been let go

But…

The hurt is deeper

than I want to admit

So…

this is where

Caring

And…

Concern…

have gotten me

in my life

 

Always…

Forgotten…

Three Words

Three Words

Three little words
just broke my heart

Three innocent words
destroyed what was
left of my soul

Three simple words
reduced me to
nothingness

Three words said
without concern
or caring
killed my trust

Three little words
And…
They were not
I Love You...

Repeat…

I have been down
this road before
 
Vowed to never
travel it again
 
Yet…
 
Life has a way
of being cunning
sneaking up on you
taking you back
into the old habits
bad habits
 
Repeat…
 
This time without
the hurt…
the shame…
the pain…
the rage of emotion…
 
I have turned away with
No words…
No explanations…
Not really caring anymore
 
Reality ~
 
I have gone unnoticed
So…
This is the right move
The only move

Blind Love

Blind Love

You broke her
Heart
But…
not her Spirit
 
Blind love makes
it so easy to follow
to trust —
every action…
every word…
unconditionally
 
Until…
Eyes are
opened…
hearts are hardened…
And…
Love is 
no longer 
Alive…

I often receive comments about the personal nature of my poetry.  Not everything I write comes from a personal experience.  Today’s poem was inspired by a phrase I heard while watching an early morning movie.  But, that phrase spoke to me and my past experiences.

Rain Like Tears

Rain Like Tears

It began last night
That mournful sound
The singing that never ceases
A melody taunting her soul…
Causing her heart to
fear the coming storm
 
Rain like scalding tears
freeze with each touch
burning cold…
leaving deep and
lasting scars
Unseen…
Yet…
deeper than any wound

Let The Light In

Let The Light In

Not all wounds
can be seen
They are not physical
But…
Emotional…
Mental…
Psychological…
 
You destroyed
my Soul
with your Double
edged tongue
A wound so
Deep it took
eons to Heal
 
Words are negative
especially when used
deliberately to
hurt…
wound…
destroy…
 
Words are also
strong…
positive…
when I had
the courage
to say…
Goodbye

This Rumi quote always reminds me of Leonard Cohen’s Anthem.
