The quiet storm

Within me,
The quiet storm continues,
As every other night before,
I rage within,
A fortress of pillows,
And fearful thoughts,
Angry memories,
And sad emotional feelings,
The quiet storm,
Will not blow over,
Do not let me drown.

After all this time

Isn't it funny,
The way we end up,
Here again,
The crossroads we run into,
Time after time,
I keep raveling the threads,
But they just keep on going,
And I can't keep track anymore,
Lost my dignity,
My innocence,
My mind,
How do I keep on going this way,
Pretending it's all fine,
No, I don't miss you, dear,
I just miss the memories we left behind,
Get behind me,
Fragments of a long gone past,
I'd crush you like the paper in my hand,
The written notes,
I'd thought you were the man,
But I was wrong again,
Wronged again this time,
After all this time.

The cold

It was colder,
And somehow it didn't matter,
The layers getting thinner,
Even as everyone shivered,
I wondered why it affected them,
Not me,
And then I remembered,
It was the reasons best forgotten,
I slept alone now,
The cold my only companion.

Awkward hellos and goodbyes

It's midnight,
I'm feeling down,
Didn't want to fall so hard,
But it's too late,
I'm already on the ground,
I won't take it back,
And say we were wrong,
Time was a bitch,
And I just couldn't be strong,
They say love makes no excuses,
And it's either find a way,
Or it's all a lie,
But what if I told you,
I'm only human,
I'm only human,
And I too will drown,
In the tears I cry,
So it's too late now,
When all that's left,
Are awkward hellos and goodbyes.
