BREAKABLE

BREAKABLE

A Poem by christine zapanta andes
"

..under my skin..

"
in a room of strangers
all I'm askin' is an open door
where light could spark
and dries my eyes.

a dessert of dirt
beyond every ignorance
it's a bust of shadow
that poisons me,
every bit of my breath
is a shouting fear
looking for a gay sky
that may take me so high.

I'm an empty chair
where nobody sits
coz it's broken
like an old pen of a writer
being pushed to let go
of the taint he hasn't.

"it's a damn cold night
I try to figure out this life
won't you take me by the hand
take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are but I
I'm with you"

..keep on waitin'
for the presence of no one,
..keep listenin'
to the footsteps of joy
yet losing my strength
coz reality fooled me.

"is it enough to love?
is it enough to breath?
somebody ripped my heart out
and leave me here to bleed,
is it enough to die?
somebody save my life
I'd rather be anything but ordinary please.."

You are anything but ordinary. This is a very meaningful piece, very heartfelt. It has a lyrical quality to it that is suggestive of starting with a soft guitar riff, singing the lyrics slow at first and screaming the cores. Very Bullet For My Valentine esk. One of my favorite bands right now. But I could also see this as a fitting Green Day song...!

I like the complete poem. The ending made the poem complete. All of us need reasons to be alive and strong. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
