Heavy Anchor Heart

Heavy Anchor Heart

A Chapter by chrysantheranium

You take a breath,
Ready to look back -
Look deep back on
The times that once were
.
.
The times where
You would look upon
Both sealaced streetsides
Not once, but twice
.
Left, then right,
Then left again
And right again
And steady-still
.
Steady you stayed
Strayed away
By the ocean's spray,
Lost in the last eyes
By the dying light
Of May
.
.
Yes, you still remember her birthday
You still remember her birthday
.
.
.
.
.
On one hand, an island
Of flowers and blossoms
That never cease
To bloom
.
Petals falling,
Leaves a'dancing,
Always ready to rest easy
Always ready to catch you
.
.
On the other hand, an island
Of chasms and sweet mystery
Always casting a shadow
Always under that same rainbow
.
But you think,
The colors just mean
It always rains where you are
Where you are,
It always
Rains.
.
.
.
You hit your head
Twice then twice
Again, and
Again
.
Pendulum heart,
Metronome mind
Beat twice, blink twice
Please, please, think again
.
.
You still remember her birthday
.
.
What would your parents say?
.
.
.
Black and white
Back and forth
A push, a pull,
A current tearing at your worth
.
.
You always wondered
Why you were
So afraid
Of the salty seas
.
.
Heavy heart, you sank
Far below
Too distraught
To make a decision
.
To follow
.
.
.
.
.
You still remember her birthday
.
You still remember her birthday

Ignore basic grammatical errors, as there are some rules that, as a writer, I don't care to abide by. I feel restricted when following these rules, and since I have such a hard time getting my thoughts across, I'd rather break a few rules than be grammatically "perfect."

Pendulum heart,
Metronome mind
Beat twice, blink twice
Please, please, think again

love this line, and the sad repeated line, you still remember her birthday, it made me wounder who she was, and why you remember her birthday, and how sad it must make you feel to still remember her birthday.
