Tomorrow

by Teatart

Where did the sun go?
It was here yesterday
It rose like normal
And set in a flame of colours

Yesterday
Its rays warmed my cool skin
Its brilliance
Left black dots before my eyes

But today
My world is in shadow
Cold, stark, dull
No light to draw the night away

The darkness amplifies my despair
Gives wings to my hopelessness
And claws to my rejection
It feeds the starving monster within

I hide behind closed doors
Praying that tomorrow,
Tomorrow you will be back
And the struggle will subside again

Tomorrow
Tomorrow
Tomorrow

Owner of hearts

by Teatart

I have lived for so long
Waiting to share my life with you
Longing to the day
We would become one

I believed your whispered confessions of love and loyalty
Yet I shy from the realisation that
Your words have been clever stories
Laced with deception and betrayal

My heart grows weary with
Every shed tear and false hope
For you cannot love
You know not how to

Your love is only that which is lustful and selfish
You toy with emotions as a destructive child
Yet weep when you acknowledge
That I am gone

I am a victim to your predatory skills
Wanting nothing more than your touch
Willing you to love me again
But I know that cannot be

You have already left me
Alone and wounded
In my own private darkness
Of despair and rage

Alone with the memories
Of what could’ve been
Alone with the damaged anger that
Slowly fuels me to awake to the present

Yes, I will not continue to retrace this cycle
But I know that you will want me again
And in this future
It will be I to tell tall tales …
