Reckless

Reckless

A Poem by Sincerely, Alex
"

You were always reckless with your love.

"

I'm slaying shadows in the dark

Ghosts of who and what we are

Your voice is echoing again

In the catacombs of my head

 

I want to encase you with your words

Trap you with the messageless bottle you never sent

I'm just one of your traveled possessions collecting dust

From when you found and disected my heart

 

Know that when you leave the room the air goes with you

So just keep running from your past

For it is cruel to cage a bird

An angel on earth that flies to live

 

Your stories tell of centuries that have passed

Times when you stayed bounded in my arms

When your shackles weren't released

A time when leaving wasn't a desire in your heart

 

I wait on your dusty shelf

For your pen to lose it's ink

The tapping of your hand at the door

Will bring breath into my lungs

A house of ink is waiting for you

 

You were always reckless with your love

This was a really exquisite write! The metaphors you used in your poem were so beautiful, and really captured the meanings that you were trying to convey in their simplest forms. Despite it's beauty, this poem also held a kind of pain and sadness to it, which in turn, made me sad, as the theme of long distance love reminded me of my own parents' marriage. There was one spelling mistake in the last line of the second stanza, where you had written 'disected' which should be 'dissected'. :)
This was a really beautiful write. xD
