The Boy Who Understood Me

The Boy Who Understood Me

A Poem by Tessa Melendez
"

Expressing some thoughts and feelings about someone I met recently and have found myself falling for.

"
Why do I continue to hurt myself like this?
I could swear that the pain is something I would never miss
Yet, my heart continues to twist
Tearing me up from within, Love is a horrible sin

Meant to break people down and turn them around
Keep them from what should be found.
For me, Love is a sin too profound
I still remember the first sight of him

The one that would once more tear me up from within.

I felt nothing much at first.
I wasn't prepared for the worst.
Glasses and snapback
My mind pulled me back

He was not much to behold
Until the smile that was so bold.
Full lips and flirty tongue
Long lashes and dark eyes

Just like me he wished to die
Just like me he'd often felt the kiss of the blade.
At first I didn't know what was behind those dark eyes.
I didn't know of how he'd cried

Nearly died.

When I did, my heart cried
Cried out in want of him.
Just from swapping stories of different pain
Stories of rejection and hate

Reasons for exposing skin to a blade
Stories of dark days
He knew too well what it's like to wear a mask
Play along like you're okay

When you're simply keeping darkness at bay
And trying to save others from their pain
But you're only tearing yourself up more
He could be mine.

He could be the one I'm meant for
He understood how hearts tore
Understood my pain and more.
He cared.

Cared more than anyone ever could
Because he knew my pain better than anyone would.
He'd lived it and more
He's held my hand as carefully as he held me

So warm and kind though he'd been beaten down so many times.
I've often dreamed of what we could be
Felt it coming true with the smiles and hugs he gave me.
Felt it in the way he held my hand

But he doesn't want me
There is nothing more to see
Nothing more to feel.
A waste of my pain once more.

Could this please end?
Could my heart listen to my head?
Stop jumping into guys' hands so fast?
I just want to feel free and happy for awhile.

I haven't written in awhile but, here's a new piece based on some emotions and things that have been going on. Another is brewing but I have so much to do at the moment it can't stop coalescing and solidify yet.
