I Wish (3)

I wish

My heart

Knew

Better

 

I wish

I didn’t

Let you

Hurt me

 

But

Your words

Slice at

My heart

Reopening

Wounds

I tried

To put

Away

 

I wish

My heart

Knew

Better

 

Than to

Believe

You

Changed

 

Than to

Believe

You love

Me

For who

I am

 

Than to

Believe

You don’t

Want to

‘Fix me’

 

Like

I am

A broken

Doll

 

Made

For you

To

Dress

Color in

Sit on

Your shelf

 

Look

Pretty

For you

 

Dance

To the

Melody

Of your

Lies

 

Hypnotizing

Me into

Believing

The

Steps

My

Heart

Beat

Asks for

Are

Wrong

 

I wish

My brain

Knew

Better

 

Than to

Tell my

Heart

To

Hush

 

I wish

My

Soul

Felt

Better

 

Than to

Forget

Pretend

Suffocate

 

I’m speaking

To the

Mirror

 

Their

Voices

From

My lips

Moonlight

Well this silence is odd

It’s comfort

How foreign is that

 

There’s this strange

Light dance

Dizzying in my chest

 

I love it

Can I keep it?

Change smiles softly at me

 

It will be back

Once it leaves

I Promise
