Did you grow a little taller

When you broke my fragile heart

Did you get a little smarter

When you pulled our life apart?

-Linda Lee Lyberg

It’s real
It’s over
It’s done
It’s overdone
Seven years was too long
To torture an innocent heart.

As If

As If

-Linda Lee Lyberg

As if

Nothing mattered

You threw away my love

With your lies, blue eyes, and red lips.

I wept.

Love, Today

Rossio square in Lisbon

The scars upon my soul
Are impressions from the past
A road map of my loves
That left me less than whole.

All or Nothing

by braveandrecklessblog

My imagination was captivated this morning by the lyrics of Ryan Montbleau’s All or Nothing

The minutes


weigh heavily

upon my shoulders

in the aching night

where I replay

Your eyes are sometimes

All I can think of

When I lie here alone at night

In the bed we used to share

How you used to

Lie here next to me

I Say That I Lost You

I say that I lost you

as though you were an umbrella

that I carelessly left on the bus

after the summer rain had stopped

Our Undertow

by braveandrecklessblog

Written in collaboration with S Francis at SailorPoet after they uncovered and shared a couple of fragments found in journals.  – Gecko and Mouse

In the sleepless nights since you left

I have become a ghost

Haunting lonely shores.

My restless legs cover miles

Before giving out.

I am raw, ragged

I Wonder If

by markfahmy


I still feel..
your lips on mine
as I held you close
and your hair did shine
under a million stars
when everything seemed to align.

I wonder if..
you think about me too
when you lie in bed at night
under a million different stars
knowing my heart still belongs to you.

Being shipwrecked on an island, standing alone in the sun

I realize the waves keep coming in one by one.

When you first left my life, it ripped a hole in me.

Funny it was huge to me but no one else could see.

by Nick Anthony

I don’t hate you.
It’s not you who fuels the insomnia
That tortures me in bed
Each night as I lay awake,
Desperately longing to take back
What I lost.

Because I didn’t lose you.
You were never mine to have.
I know that now.
I’ve accepted that you were free
To meet him and abandon me.
And I cherish our time before:
When it was just us two.

For Just Five Minutes

by 50djohnson


Blood moon and solar eclipse day on 1640 077

Unsuspecting heartache hiding behind trust’s revolving door,

Jumping out leaving  broken hearts in pieces shattered on the floor.

One unsuspecting moment when hurt shatters  dreams

Changing love into chaos which cannot be redeemed.

The Love’s Gone Stale

by Bipolar Opposites

The love has gone stale
Like a beached whale.
Sitting in the sun,
Not loved by anyone;
I played the game –
What a shame that was.
You were here, and then you were gone.
Where do I belong?

is not in blood on glass or that haunting piano waltz

whiskey in a teacup

by amongmyfrivolousthoughts

He met her at a bookstore
Lost in millions of books and
Tangled in a thousand lives
She wore ugly red glasses
With mismatched old shoes
She seemed at first glance
To be just another lost girl
She was a thin golden slice

Tasting Tears

by Karin

She cries in the rain and stares until she’s blinded at fiery sunsets

She drinks from the ocean

And then writes his name in the sand

She crashes into the pain this brings like the waves on the shore

She’s been scuttling about, trying to gather the pieces of her life

Strewn upon the floor, just like the mirror she shattered because he always said she was beautiful and she couldn’t find beautiful in the mirror

Her hands are cut and bleeding; pulling back the fragments, desperately trying to make them stick

Searching For You

by Poetic


You’re always leaving me
wanting more
chasing you
following in your footsteps
I’ve searched
for so long
yet only your ghost remains
haunting me
so faintly
I spend my days in solitude
by memories
Im left to wander aimlessly
looking for
the love
that has endlessly eluded me

Beyond Cinderella

by Worldly Winds

As she whispers to herself,

her shouts become shadows,

and heartbeats chime thirteen;

the pain in her chest is not surpassed,

by the memory of just before midnight.
