Poem #239

Can’t you see it’s still me behind this mask.
I thought you would see through this version of me.
Just believe there are good intentions behind this.
I know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions
but I am paving my road back to me. Can’t you hear
these tired steps that I am taking?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!

I just wish we have many more successful years. I do feel bad that at the start I didn’t invest as much time as I do now in this blog and I didn’t see its potential but I am so glad that in the last year we’ve built this incredible community of poets and bloggers who support each other, share they work, bring positive vibes and share their abuse stories to encourage others through our guest post categories. Thank you for building and writing this blog with me!

Sending love and positive vibes,

Luna

Poem #236

The emptiness of this room whispers
to me with the same pain you had in your voice:
“Sometimes love just isn’t enough”

With those words you made the poetess
in me want to set on fire all of the poems she wrote.
If not love, then what?

Poem #235

I always believed happiness wouldn’t give me
a thing to write about but then I meet you and realized
that every movement of your imperfect being is a
poem waiting to be engraved on my skin

Poem #230

My relationships aren’t love stories.
They are twisted fairytales I wrote.
The happy ending is nowhere in sight.
I keep biting the poisonous apple because
I’ve romanticized the villain.

Poem #229

You know it’s not just a habit.
You know it’s not just “We decided to stay friends”
It’s the flame that never went out and
it’s burning through your veins,
pulling you back to hell
as you fall into his arms again.
But you love the heat, don’t you?
