Pen'D Poem: May 12 - 18

  ~ Glass Heart { Mr. Wrong } ~
By Marcia Martin

Addicted to breakin hearts, its your healing process to bury and not show your own hurt and fears. Your eyes so beautiful filled with such grief and animosity. Trying to save you from the depth of the past pain. In your lows you see reward yet when your high your screaming out to be rescued and loved. I try to break free before I fall victim to your love, its to late because you chained me to your soul. The venom you speak brings me to my knees as your love for lying over take my core fills it until it burst. Shed so many tears they have turned scarlet. Walking through your webs of spun poison inhaling and digest your misery and heartache just to hold on to you. Our chemistry has me in a daze, how is it possible to broken souls can work, it can't two negatives can't make a positive. I can't help you and your help to me is watching me suffer. I pick you up when other put you down but when others put me down you join them and laugh and go fuck the next they come back to me only to but me deep in painful hell. I give u 100% of me and I only 3% of you yet I can't turn and leave you, I can't move on, Im addicted to your pain of love. You are for me and Im for you. Our pain completes each other. Your pain heals me and I'll take the heartbreak you give me just to emigre in your black heart. You can't tell your lies of love from fake or real.

S_trength of the H_ope we share A_dvise others T_o watch our love story to T_ell E_verbody how powerful and passionate and R_eal our love is and feel our E_nergy as its emerged D_aily.

I continue to run to you but you push me away until you need me then you pull me into your heart and protect me from pure love only to give me tainted love. You saw in me and scared lil girl who couldn't be saved but desired to heal others and you played on that because I'm to damaged to feel or no what love is or truly feels like. You see my crying and walk by with joy, even though I'm crying tears of regret. When u hold me close I'm breaking down slowly but more every minute because I listen as your heart beat someone else's name. Drowning in a whirlwind of a depression of passion. I know I deserve someone better but you have me intertwined beyond the depth of the core of your soul so I can't excape. My rich smile that allured my face is now a broken smile overshadowed by screaming tears. I know everybody makes mistakes and its the smart ones who profit from it, yet you continue to do the same thing making it no longer a mistake, its just who you are. Going insane spinning out of control losing myself trying to chase after you and love you and you just abandon me. My souls is the calmest when its calling out for you to come back and when you do I breathe in ur lies as if it your love you have for me.
