Heartache

by Teatart

How can I explain to you
that time stands still
when you are not near?
My heart beats in isolation,
A lonely drum tick on a darkened stage

Each breath is a pitiful agony
Every blink everlasting torture
My thoughts are not my own
My limbs refuse to move,
Withered, brittle and frozen

I hang onto a fine thread of hope
Frailly tethered to reality
Will you return to me?
When will you be by my side?
How long my love ‘til you are mine?

I need your touch to awaken this dormancy
Your kiss to restore my subsistence
Although we are elusive strangers
You hold fortress in my very core
And I cannot live without you

Please don’t leave me in limbo
With such remorse and yearning
I stand incomplete and broken,
Aching for your acceptance,
And longing to be made whole.

Used

by Teatart

I feel used
Thrown out like a piece of trash
Good enough one day
Insufficient the next

Of course I knew better
I knew who you were
But I allowed myself to believe
That somehow I was different

In my own desire to be loved
I opened myself up to abuse
And became merely a filler
For your own insecurities

So who should I be angry with?
Myself? You?
I know the answer
No matter how hard the truth

It’s me, it’s always been me
