A Romance of The Broken
I love you,
Those three words, a massacre did they bring. My heart strung in agony for the world to see. To watch me bleed with boiling agony that not even I could contain. And with no sympathy, you packed your instrument of love, never to play by my side again.
I became an abandoned piano in the dust of your empty heart. And your lips turned sour with the mere thought of my yearning for your soul. A distant hand did you become as you vanished the recesses of my mind. Still, I gave you a place in my heart, though yours was a chamber of murder for mine.
I could not leave what I prayed would spark a new. That in the hour of midnight you would call to me. Not for the longing of an ear. But for the blooming desire of love, for something beyond what had been planted.
But with each passing night, I became but a mere poet of lonely stanzas. Not even the rays of the sun brought me hope. I grew dreary in the confines of my place of design. Reaching deep into the ponds of misery, only to find you with each reeling of every word.
You stained the very pages of my eyes and I prayed for you to leave. But you would not, you stored yourself into my ink. And with every word I spilled, I could taste you, see you, hear you. And tears found no escape for you, I feel you deserve no tears of mine.
And I bring no resentment of your existence and your perpetual need to find my dreams. But I no longer hold a candle beneath the tunnel of your heart. In hopes the light will guide you, for too many times did we converse from either end. Only to say good bye once again, only to watch the wax coat my hand in heat. And like a fool, to the addiction of drugs, I clung to the suffering, as if it were breath.
Torn did I become. This feeble, maddened poet of love. Now drooling to the sight of lust, longing for even a morsel of affection. But I have shattered my will to present confidence in the discussion of love. To find one whom prays for a heart to dance with them.
All that remains is a desolate skeleton of a desperate man willing to give himself up. And as I wither to the candle light, to the empty sorrows of your tunnel. I pray, that what I did not have, you find. That I too, may someday find one to hold me as I wish to be held. To find an instrument to accompany my song. I am a mere poet, passing his time in the passion of words.
Who shall catch them, and delight in them with me?
Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed it, what was your favorite part?

I have been writting poetry on medium, does anyone still wish me to write short stories on here?
A Summer Bird's Winter Perch I watch this lonely bird chirp upon a slopping branch. Its feet wrapped firmly around the thin finger of bark. As I watch, I commiserate its position. Sitting there, alone, singing with no others to listen. Speaking I assume, to itself. Maybe contemplating its unfortunate circumstance. For the rest had already left for the winter. If I am not mistaken it was only a few days ago that I watched a flurry of birds dart by. Their wings flapping against the brisk wind collectively. Not a single one appeared worried of their journey. Their shadows crawled quickly across the empty streets during a fall evening. I watched them pass by like a feather floating down stream. I couldn't help but wonder, how long must they fly? What winds must they fight, what elements must they battle against? All must be against them as is every moment in time is against us all? Yet they fly forth to the heat of earth. Dependent upon their survival but, what
Step Out! Out, Out from the gloom, The obscure breath of doubt Take stone, break thy yoke, Let trouble fall, let shoulders be lifted, Flow, to the heavens Be but strain no more, Open wide, thy mouth, Let prayer fill thy tongue Be parched no more. Stillness in heart Though seas roar like lions, And beast snarl among mist, Step, Out! To mercy of life, Ease, be reborn. Let no shackle of past Be meaning for tear Take hammer, Fracture the cumbersome Be feet of swift Fill your days with strides, Though dunes widen And heat scorches thy soles. Out, Step out from thy fear, There is another to call To breach, To reach your heart Though thee be of man, Let not thy eyes of flesh Be the dealings of truth, Wander, In aspect to be whole Be not the coward hidden in cave, A creature curled Like frightened doe, For he walks beside thee, Like king among his men, A sword of greatness Sways from his belt, Ready, To swing against thy enemies, A presence more bold Than all the stars of a pitch sky.
