149 (who?)

You stole my confidence; you took it like you owned it, you smothered it in neglect, and you threw it in the black hole of your absence.

You used my patience; you smoked it like a drug, you took advantage of my presence, you evaporated us into nothing.

You decapitated our relationship; you cut it at the root, you shook out all the good, and threw the body into your subconscious.

You cut up my affections; you stored them in your selfishness, and turned them to dust.

You broke my heart. You took it in your hands, you tore it into two, it turned cold as ice, and you shattered it across my future with you.

You shocked me to the core, a surreality I long to never feel again. The abundance of my tears was enough to drown me, and suffocate me into an eternal river of agony –– that my memories of 'us' will float upon.

You deceived me beyond repair, I thought you would hold me through the hard times, instead you trampled on my pride, you flattened my hope, you destroyed the love I had for you, kiss by kiss, touch by touch, moment by moment.

You threw us away, like it was nothing but a mess. You crawled back, only to show you're nothing but a boy, who doesn't know what he wants. Nothing but a child too scared to face a woman, strong enough to have held you through the toughest of times, strong enough to have taken your shit, because she was mistakenly thinking it was worth it.

This is amazing. I related to this completely. Thank you for such a powerful and hard-hitting spoken word poem.

You're welcome, and thank you for reading me. This poem was very emotional for me when I wrote it, felt great to let it all out.

I think you should write one about recovery or even hope after such a traumatic (as it can only be described as such LOL!) experience with that human being in your life. 

It would really, in my opinion, complete this. When I finished reading it, I felt the story or the words shouldn't have ended there..As though there was more to your poem than just the bitter way he'd made you feel. I would love reading a continuation piece.  It's up to you of course, just a suggestion :)

hehe ohh I have, you can see it through my work, here's a couple that show a dramatic emotional shift from one day to the next, if you're interested.


day after


I've written a lot on the subject lately too, you can see it in "displace" "proliferation" "i'm back"

thanks for reading me :) I appreciate it! x

Wonderfully crafted. I like "the black hole of your absence," evaporated, dust -- among the effective metaphors for a toxic relationship. And it's so true that boys don't know what they want, even when they're men. Anyway, incredible writing - thanks for posting it!
