Tainted Pillow

A Poem by Destinyxi

Tainted Pillow


I don’t know how you do it

But you do it good


Leave me for months

Come back and act like nothing happened

And I’ll let you in

I missed you more than my denial can hide


I can’t reason with my mind

Can’t come up with excuses

I sugar coat your very existence

Your very need to be in my life


The late night talks

The emotions tainting my pillow

The fingers tightening around my sheets

All memories of you


I cut you out so clean

So easily

To do it again

I don’t think I can


The strength it took to do it once

Now to do it twice

It’ll rip me apart

Then what will you come back to next time?


You’ve found your way under my skin

Seven months worth of silence

Now a few words spoken

You’re flowing through my veins again


And I don’t know how you did it

But you did it good

I love this! And the way you wrote it....stunning.

The broken heart both scars and teaches. I've been in the shoes of the heart in this poem. Time heals to be sure, but it doesn't take much to reopen that pain and start it all over again. I like how you took that concept and put it into a poem. Nice job.

Nice piece.

Oh damn this is a great piece of writing. I hate how some people can leave behind everyone they have ever met expect that one person, that one person can say so few words and you are utterly consumed by the thought of them again aftering earing them out of your life. Very realitable poem and i simply love it. Great work on this :3

ahh, ya caught my breath a bit on this one. The last four lines are just killer! I love the way that this was written. I love that the first two lines are repeated in the last end. This was wonderful! I like the way that it takes you just a bit by surprise. as if you are saying: how did you get here? though you know you let them in. I can relate to your feelings of wonder and trepidation.

Haha, just reading the other reviews. At least 3/4 say something about knowing the feeling. :P I guess I get it, but not to that extreme.
I do love the poem though. :) It's very well written, flows amazingly, and touches a nerve.
"Then what will you come back to next time?"
I love it.

Some are just too charismatic. You seem to be dealing with one of those people here. Well done!

Happy writing,
