Reckless

Reckless

A Poem by Sincerely, Alex
"

You were always reckless with your love.

"

I'm slaying shadows in the dark

Ghosts of who and what we are

Your voice is echoing again

In the catacombs of my head

 

I want to encase you with your words

Trap you with the messageless bottle you never sent

I'm just one of your traveled possessions collecting dust

From when you found and disected my heart

 

Know that when you leave the room the air goes with you

So just keep running from your past

For it is cruel to cage a bird

An angel on earth that flies to live

 

Your stories tell of centuries that have passed

Times when you stayed bounded in my arms

When your shackles weren't released

A time when leaving wasn't a desire in your heart

 

I wait on your dusty shelf

For your pen to lose it's ink

The tapping of your hand at the door

Will bring breath into my lungs

A house of ink is waiting for you

 

You were always reckless with your love

I really like how you used dust as a metaphor for long distance it made me think and how the bird is caged meaning while your love is gone your trapped and cannot be free and you can't be with them really nice poem I think your teacher will like it :]

I thought it was bloody hell brilliant! Lately, I have been trying to get over something that I thought was so catastrophic. But really, it wasn't, and I knew that, really I did, I just couldn't make the connection between it and my logic. Well, you reminded me in the fact that it is a cage, and its not okay to be in a cage, and that I need to get out, and to live on, and that I'm not the only one in this kind of place, (which I knew that too, I'm not stupid, just not able to connect well) I thought you did a wonderful job of letting people see what is going on in your heart, and I am very thankful that you let us in. Thank you my dear, you will find another. ^-^

Your greatest reminder,
Rain

That would do it for sure You have coupled the heart and mind and yet these two dance through life together .Two parts of just one soul.Each searching for love another .While chasing a different goal!

Very nicely done! It's metaphorical and very deep in its meaning. I like how you captured the emotion in this. I think my personal favorite part was the third stanza, it seems to pull all of the pain of a long distance together. Great work!
