Decay and Heartbreak

You withered slowly away,
Wasting into the nothingness
You thought you should have
Been all along.

You didn’t know there was
Something greater at work,
A love more powerful
Than the roses and chocolates
Your romantic comedies sold.

I was there with you
That night and every one since,
Shining on the grave while you
Fought to keep your breath
At bay, asking yourself how to live
When everything went dark.

There was always Light,
Inside your heart, your smile.
You have always been mine.


About thefreescribbler

My life is one of words. I am a scribbler, whose thoughts are best expressed through adjectives and phrases and punctuation marks. I would not go so far as to call myself a writer, although many would disagree. I’m characterized more by my unfinished works and half-embodied ideas, scraps of stories and parts of poems. Maybe one day I’ll be a writer, but I’m okay with being a scribbler right now. It fits my personality and style, and best expresses my aims. I’m not trying to create some lofty version of literature. I’m just a kid blogging about life. View all posts by thefreescribbler
