‘Time had never passed so slowly'
Write a poem that concludes with this line.
I wish i had never said no
I lived in japan
I was a “perfect student”
The gangs didnt like that
One gangster did though
He liked it so much
He liked me
He asked me one day
Will you be mine?
I said “sorry, but no”
That was the biggest mistake of my life
And it would be what ended it
After 44 days of hell.
They took me to their parents house
The adults knew i was being tortured
They were sc...
There is nobody here
To watch me break down
I’m completely alone
With nobody to run too
I look at you with tears in my eyes
To understand me
But how could you
It’s not your fault
It’s not anyone’s fault
It’s all in my head
I would try to explain
But I refuse to breakdown
In front of you
Now I’m yelling at you
Angry for no reason
At least no reason
That you can see...
Laying in bed
Oppressive silence binds
Will I ever see you again
Will I ever
I pick up my phone
No calls, texts, and IM’s
It’s habit checking every lonely moment
Most of them are now though
Me and you with our cozy apartment
Me and you with our two cats
Why do I keep saying with
I grab my phone again
His graveyard marks
blister down my skin.
Annihilating my senses;
ah, I'm real again...
He loved me so hard,
I shattered into shards.
Only melting back together,
when he fed me the stars.
Screaming my name,
like it belonged on his tongue.
A mouth full of fuck,
my souls rattled numb.
ghost in my head.
This shadow on my lips.
This phantom in my bed.
Sing me back to ...
There’s this hunger inside me
It begs me to release
It won’t leave me with peace
And with every breath I breathe
I lose one more little piece
There’s this weight on my heart
That makes everything seem hard
Is the world really this harsh?
Or am I just weak?
Tears keep falling doing my face
And everyone is saying it’s just a phase
But they’re not the ones trapped in this cage
They’re not the one...
The memory of the button haunts you,
Your finger lingers over where it lit the screen.
Every nerve in your body tingles,
The realisation of what you did dawns.
The wait is endless, the possibilities daunting,
Moments of wondering now hours of torment.
How can one sentence ruin so many things?
How can four words destroy a friendship?
Greedy for love, greedy for ...
When you’re in love time flies by like a shooting star over your head in the night sky. Every moment felt as if it only lasted seconds, I was sure we would never have enough time to even finish the I love you’s
We fell in love in six months. Learned each others bodies and minds, our deepest fear and secrets, hopes and dreams. Six months felt like six seconds and yet I believed we were...
That one single moment
The first time you saw her
Your eyes sparkled and shone
You called her out by name
Me and her have the same name
I wished you were referring to me
But the honest truth was you wanted her
And the pain grew more and more over time
But in that moment
Time had never passed so slowly...
Time has never passed so slowly
Without your love
I ache and ache for just one more hug
Sitting on your knee
Remember your clear voice
Singing holy praises
Despite your fading memory, conscious
I hope your where you seeked
I’d give my anything to have you back
My soul screams
Starved of your gentle love
I’m so lonely
I remember the night you left this world
Then silence as y...
It’s been 7 days since the last time I saw your face, yet in my mind it feels like an eternity.
Why am I so in love with you, and how has this come to be?
I’m sitting here waiting for you to arrive so that I can feel the warmth of your presence. How I torcher myself with longing. If only you knew how much you meant to me, then you would know how I feel.
Time has never passed so slowly....
