A Poem by MusicLove93

I want to bite. I want to kick and scream. Fight with everything I have until I can't even pick myself up off the floor. Anything to get you out of my head for just a second. But it doesn't matter what I do, your face still lingers in the back of my mind and I can still feel the heat of your lips on mine. The ghost of your hands plays tricks upon my skin. It doesn't matter what I do, the memory of you stays with me like an unwanted tattoo; reminding me of what we once had. But you're gone, and I'm left feeling empty. Weak from your grasp upon my heart like shackles tying me to a past I wish I could forget. You were the love of my life, and like so many others before me, I know what loss is and I wish I could just forget it all. You didn't want me. But my god, I f*****g wanted you so much that I was blinded by my own desires and I let them set me on fire because I thought that you needed the warmth. But now I have nothing left in me but the burnt remains of a heart too willing to love. And it makes me so angry because how can you love someone so completely and get absolutely nothing in return? How can the universe let one person feel so much pain and expect them to survive? I let you break me and it makes me so mad that now all I can feel is the need to break things. To fight anything and everything. Because as long as I stay mad about it, then it can't break me any more than it already has. The anger is the only glue keeping me whole right now and I just can't let myself fall apart again.

This was intense. Such brutal honesty and raw emotion. When the people who can make us smile feel these kinds of emotions...it can be scary because we get afraid that we are going to lose them. But sometimes we need to just feel what we need to feel. We can only hope that when they are exhausted and can no longer hold on to the anger...they allow happiness to embrace them once again.

The emotions are so strong in this. It's written with a rhythm that shows a real longing for no more pain, no more hurt and all the questions one has when one loves fiercely and gets nothing in return. A very strong write!

Makes a person feel they can't do worst being on their own. Nice.

Anger can be a good tool if you use it properly. Anger is a double-blade knife. Help keep us motivated and can make us make poor decisions. I like the honest tone leading to strong ending. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
