There Will Come a Day

There will come a day when you look back on all that you did not pursue with great regret

But then it will be too late.

There will be no one left to love you

No one left to abuse

The option to swallow your pride, admit you were wrong

They will all be gone.

A day when the pain you thought you were saving yourself from will be all that you have left.

You think your heart is broken now, but you have no idea what is yet to come.

Someday all this will matter to you

The friends you pushed away

The love you didn’t chase

The family you wish you had been closer to

But by then, it will be too late.

Your family will pass, friends will move on

And love will only be a distant memory

The uncertainty of which you will never escape

You will never know that she was waiting for you behind the door

Hoping that you would turn around

Praying that just for one moment

You wouldn’t do what you always do.

Break her heart.

In the end,

As you lay there alone

Waiting for the reaper

Not one will be there to hold your hand

No memories of love to sooth you on the way

All you ever wanted was for everyone to leave you alone

But there will come a day

When all that you have been running from will be all that you crave

And then…it will be too late.

My Mistake

I  awoke today at 4 AM

Cringing at the prospect of another day

I am exhausted I thought

Lost

Wandering through the darkness of my mind

Sleep was my only peace

From this cloak of sanity I must abide

For I am cracked you see

Jagged

These edges on my heart

embraced with scars

From lovers of the past

Those who taught me

Just how worthless

One can make you feel

Thank you for reminding me that I mean nothing

For a moment, I actually thought you cared

My mistake
