I HAVE CHANGED

I HAVE CHANGED

A Poem by lua
"

but the past will always remain

"

I have changed

but I am stuck as the empty shell

bound to your memories

intertwined with the melancholy

that filled my veins

it’s filled my veins and I took a hit

a hit of you

to numb me enough to smother you

and share the sadness I was drowning in


we were proud

of the desolation disguised as

a lifeline

but it was our lifeline

and as the darkness lifted

a veil of hopelessness

I began to need you less

the lifeline

our lifeline was a tangle

a mess of the dreams we once had

it was toxic

you were toxic

an enemy to my body

you left me writhing with your sorrow

but it was no longer mine

I changed

 

but what I was remains in you

a prisoner

stuck for eternity

a poison you won’t give up

an evil you feed off to keep going

you stay bitter at what I once was because

you won’t let go

 

but I have changed

You might like to write the lyrics of the song Empty by emperor. Not sure if you like the music, but his poem really reminds me of the dark poetry that is contained within that song. I must confess, maybe this poem could be a bit darker, I think it get's stronger that way. Anyway Keep up the good work! Sinerely yours, Jules.

People do change. Become closer or separate.
"but what I was remains in you
a prisoner

a poison you won’t give up
an evil you feed off to keep going
you stay bitter at what I once was because
you won’t let go"
Life can be hard. Accept less or run? A powerful write that left the reader with something to think about. Thank you Lua for sharing the excellent poetry.
