closed doors

She stared unwavering into his deep brown eyes, took a deep breath and spoke: "When we were both with other people it was fine, a little bit of harmless flirting, a little dangerous, but we both had boundaries". He reached to touch her hand, and she moved away. Her voice cracked as she held back the emotion, she continued, " I'm without a boyfriend it would be different. I'd be a sad and lonely person pining after someone who is taken, it shifts the energy. It's not a recipe for success however you look at it, no matter how nice it would be. And it would be nice, believe me". She knew at this, whatever they had would be over... but she also knew deep down that she could never really have him. He'd been with 'her' for too long, he would never leave. She convinced herself that no matter how it hurt now, it was for the best. Her heart beat out the rhythm if her loneliness, as she turned and left the train. Some doors are best left closed.

empty room

Windows blown open
The curtains swirl
Carried on a torrent of emotion

She lay broken on the floor

oriental blossom

Oriental blossom
Silky black hair
Caressed by the breeze

Delicate fingers
Resting upon a
Peaceful alabaster brow

She watches the horizon
As a nightingale sings his love
Back into the nest

two sides

Your side: an unbreakable bond
He's yours and you're his

His side: an unbreakable bond
He's bored and you're history

my friend

Because of you
I love this song
Because of you
The lyrics are wrong

Because of you
I feel happy

Looking at the scar
Just above my right knee
Pale against an even paler leg

Remembering the day
The Stanley knife went in
I remember it in black and white
Except the blood in red

More blood than you would think
The knife went deep

I sat in the bathroom
Until you came home

You came home
And hugged me
I cried
You hugged me

Looking at the scar
Just above my right knee
Pale against an even paler leg

I cry

cage of tears

Fading away into nothingness
You think
But only to yourself

Self enforced prison
Of loneliness

Cage of tears
Unbreakable bars
Of illusion
And pain
