That Same Old Melody

That Same Old Melody

A Poem by Beautiful Intentions


Shh…

Be as quiet as you can…

Don’t let them hear it

Don’t ever let them see it

 

Sneak into the bathroom

Behind the comforts of a closed door

Embrace yourself in a shadowed corner

Crawl into the warmth of your bed

Nestle deep into silent pillows

Hold them near to you as if…

As if cotton intends to hold you in return

Smile just a little brighter

Fashion a few more tiny white lies

“Oh, there’s just something in my eye.”

Turn off the radio

Look away from the television

Put down your phone

Shut your laptop

Just don’t think for a moment

Just don’t do it to yourself

Bite your quivering bottom lip

Do it right now because they are coming

 

But whatever you do…

 

Don’t let them hear it

Don’t ever let them see it

 

Where is your mascara?

And don’t forget the bags under your eyes

Pucker those cracked lips for something pretty in pink

Curl all that lustrous dark hair

Slip into those white-tiger pumps

Laugh with everything you have left

Maybe even bat those thick lashes

Dance it out…

Just dance it out, girl…

Remember not to drink too much

Because they will talk about it

That word which will break your heart

It starts with an ‘L’ and ends in ‘E’

Tell them to take away your phone

Because you’re doing it again

Searching for someone who isn’t there

Bite your quivering bottom lip

And hurry as they are coming

 

Because whatever you do…


Whatever you do...

 

Don’t let them hear it

Don’t ever...

Not ever let them see you cry

This is so so so touching! I smiled at your mention of the word 'Love' in a unique way..
I think even we did show all these emotions, no one would really care.. Or maybe for a sec we'll be noticed or talked about but after that? We're all part of the big crowd, lost and left gasping for air alone...
Sorry that's just ranting about..but I really really loved this piece! My favourite of yours so far ☺

I am extremely extatic about this form of writing. It was so easy and capturing of a read. So much scandal, so much inner turmoil also, so much..well, so much of so much, it's my favorite thing you've written I believe. It makes me want to read all of your work. It's so inviting, so powerful, so, you. I am not even sure how to accurately assess it because it just over-runs my circuits. It was so cleverly done, just the style I prefer, and makes me feel great to read it. I can only say...



more please!!!!

And...

White Tiger Pumps!!
