Memories

A Poem by Emo_Cat

Every song I listen to,

Reminds me of you.

Why is this so challenging for me to do?

Why can’t I get you out of my thoughts?

Always on the run.

Why do you have to haunt me in my dreams?

When in reality, it doesn’t mean a thing.

Why do I still cry silent tears throughout the night and day?

We’ve both fucked up in the past.

This shouldn’t be so hard.

My heart needs a permanent cast.

My guardian angel played the wrong card.

On the cold hard floor I lay.

Only if you had stayed.

Now you are upset and mad.

I don’t blame you.

But I cannot tame the beast inside.

Struggling for so long.

Against so many f*****g odds.

And all this time,

Cuddling with my demons.

Getting to know each of them.

Personally.

But that doesn’t define who I am.

So much time has past.

But still feels as though it has just begun.

The downward spiral,

That seems to never end.

I am completely done.

Only one has the power to mend.

The broken and shattered heart within.

Only to be showered with bitter words.

You all know that I am no quitter.

All my demons,

flutter around inside,

Like hellish little birds.

And now all I have to do,

is mutter useless words.

That will never be heard.

Hi I'm Wyrn. It had lots of lessons and brought back memory. I'm a man of few words and don't usually like wright this much in reviews but here goes. We have all done things or have secrets that we would like to remain barred in the rubble of our past and your poem digs through the rubble and brings out the secrets barred their.

Another good universal piece from you. I love it. You are becoming one of my favorite writers. There is one definite line that stands out to be

"My guardian angel played the wrong card"

It is unique in that most people never would claim that they were done wrong by a guiding force. Interesting.

Thank you for sharing your mind.

This is one of the best poems of heartbreak I've read in a while. Many such poems sound too whiny to me, but this one sounds well-crafted for good sound & meaning. Love the haphazard rhymes & the simple but well-stated descriptions of how it can feel when one's heart cannot let go of a painful thing. Even tho the sentiments are about hopelessness, I also get the tone of courage & strength running quietly underneath your words (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

These caught my attention:
"Every song I listen to,
Reminds me of YOU"..."All my demons,flutter around inside, Like hellish little BIRDS"..."My heart needs a permanent cast"...

1. My name is YOU
but I suppose two bronzed skin birds sharing the fence
One is jove,
the other is joke,
the heart of exuberance

I like this expression "The downward spiral, That seems to never end. Only one has the power to mend". nice

The below lines are true.
"My heart needs a permanent cast.
My guardian angel played the wrong card."
I do understand the above lines. When life is going to s**t. Hard to stop. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry.
