My story

A Poem by bella

I am just a girl
An entity with breasts really

Born to two star crossed lovers
Destined to collide in their burnt out fall
From the universe, down to earth

Born to the leftover pieces
Of the war on drugs
And the holocaust

Raised by Satan herself
She still strolls the halls of my mind
From time to time
Tracing her talons along my walls
Leaving her marks
Once again

Yes I'm just a girl
Born to the broken
Destined to love the same

And oh yes have I loved the same

I've loved forrest green eyes
Dark wavy hair
Warm lips
Cold hands to match his heart

I've lost soft brown eyes
Decieving smiles
Long sleeves
Worn beanies
And beautiful scars

Oh how I wish I was born to the loved
So that someday I might raise a girl
To be loved

That was pretty deep expressing many things like life feelings thoughts even past and now. I feel you did a very great job expressing all:)

This is an excellent poem from top to bottom, so I wouldn’t call it a “work in progress”! So many times, writers convey a message like this & it sounds like blaming or whining. But here you paint a somewhat harsh picture with tones of acceptance. I love the way you describe the universal forces that spilled together & brought you into this life – so poignant & original & recognizable. This reminds me how I used to wish that someone had taught me how to be in a steady relationship, but I only had examples of chaos to learn from. It took me years to overcome that early conditioning. But it can be done, even if it’s missing from one’s early life. Your final stanza reminds me of the song “Daughters” by John Mayer (“fathers be good to your daughters, for they grow up to be mothers, etc.) – a song that tells my story & I love the way you tell yours (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Beautifully phrased darkness. Sad to know how many have had lives like this, myself included. Writing can be therapeutic in its own way. Thanks for sharing!

Broken and beautiful. How else the light will come out.

Thank you!
Perhaps the unborn too have a say in such struggles, those who know not fear, nor love, nor hatred, nor joy. They know nothing but death. And us? Born broken, to repair at ones costs, born whole, to break others. So how is it that 2 magnets attach when of the same frequency? To choose. And oh, how I have chosen, will you?
