Wall

by lindaluna583

When I was sick and in such pain,
You hurt me over and again.
You had to have your daily thrill,
Came into me against my will.

I SHALL BE SILENT

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

If the words
that You read
by my hand
hurt You

I shall lay down my pen
and not write
for I never
ever want to hurt
the heart of My Friend

If the words
that I said
cut You

Last Gate

by A. Marie

I know that I forgot to love you.
I know that I forgot to sew back on the sleeve.
I know that the arm that is now bare, and bears the marks,
forgot to extend, grasp, and lift he.

I am aware that I was born.
I am aware I am less than what was allotted to me.
I am aware that I caused great harm,
that I never granted explanation to she.

With a shower of tears

The truth about you
That you were leaving

Drome

by A. Marie

Again, we collide, double minded with dueling heartbeats,
Strumming lungs stricken and tightened in a sharp heave,
Lacing legs together to drive out frosty winters, cruel lovers,
Parents that pulled at our arms and swam about us like bees,

Sharp Tongue

by A. Marie

Compacted neatly into bite-sized balled needles,
my internal epidemics huck out.

They vomit forward:
as adjectives as nouns as verbs as plurals;
damnable daggering hounds stretching necks
far ahead to snap maws
tight around unsuspecting jugulars.

Trauma

by A. Marie

She releases a shiver,
A sight unclean.

She runs
For the headland, willing to toss herself
To gods.

A stout wall of woefulness
The heart cries alone

~ Today, I’ll Be Free ~

by ladyliterati

~ Today, I’ll Be Free ~

Today, I’ll be free
Toss these bags of garbage
In a pit of possibility

These barrels of tears
In a river of revival
Watch as they rush to the sea

i forgot that you will hurt me

by suicidallyanonymous

But you are
my unwithering shadow
-a ladder I can climb
like a beanstalk to rest
the soles of my feet.
If only I could touch
yours.

I don’t care if your world is ending today
I don’t want you to see
where I hide the hurt,
because I burned myself
when I tried to bleach
the ache in my bones

to the heart that held a raw, undying malice

by suicidallyanonymous

On a paper sheet, she wants to hurt herself
in the same way a mattress bends
its spring to grope the slut
bleeding her morals.

tin cans and shooting stars

by suicidallyanonymous

[ground control to major tom]
I wish you wrote me a love note,
and sent it to me
on a fragile paper crane.
I’d fly away
to be a bright and shining star
like her.

and turn my veins to paper
in your flamethrowing hands.
I wish your tongue could cure
the crack in my throat.

she isn’t what she used to be

by suicidallyanonymous

I wish I could honestly express rage,
unwrapped like a tornado in summer.
The way you can unfold
and become verbally violent,
but I am too small
for courage.

just like hazy little pine needles

by suicidallyanonymous

The earth can see you.
And I can see you.
But you see a mirror,
naked in your callousness,
with bright blue flaws
burned into your thigh.
