This Time It's Sealed

This Time It's Sealed

A Poem by Starfruitanimal

In a ruthless way she’s so stuck in her history,

And its like, everyday she kind of likes her own misery.

Stuffed,

In a bottle,

Feeling too full yet hollow,

Forcing down every swallow,

Until it leads to tomorrow.

Hey you see,

She’s in the ring with a monster.

Manipulating her moves as he creeps right behind her.

It’s gonna feast real soon,

Carries knives and made ditches,

Torn stitches and b*****s,

It’ll see to it’s riches.

And she’ll see him dead,

And she knows she will.

Empty void to fill,

Gonna claim her kill.

Give it 14 days, and then she’ll be saved,

And learn how to behave,

And have a reason to say �"

That I’ve made it Mom.

Now I’m where I belong,

What I did was wrong,

But presently, things are calm.

Singing the same song

Broken, bloody, and bruised,

Cliché terms to use

But that s**t,

It’s true.

 

Desperation leads to disaster,

The days keep moving faster,

But desperation is the disease of the one that pleads.

Begging, sick on their knees,

Reaching out for help with their needs.

I look past her,

Hard to handle the pain she feels the morning after…

She’s willing to surrender,

Just 14 days.

Such a fragile contender,

Breaking glass to behave.

Now the monster’s confused,

Little girl got a curl in her lip,

And she’ll hit

With her life, give it all

This time,
it will stick.

I guess it deals with life being hard . and the request is to never give up. I am almost sure it's also facing your problems instead of bitching about them or not handling them by running away .
It's written in a story line which enhances the message that you want to convey, and that is an incredible talent. Thank you!

Great poem. Really deep and has great meaning, a lot of people can relate to this.

I really liked the beginning, and throughout the poem your rhyme scheme rocks, but I got lost around "carries knives and made ditches." That said, I definitely struggle with drinking sometimes, and it's hard to explain to people that I'm afraid of the choices I might make. Most people don't understand that you can know yourself well enough to fear your flaws. That's kind of what I get out of this.
