I Should Have Known

Standard

Paranoia sinking in

Memories left on my skin

Close my eyes to escape

But you found me

You always found me.

Snowflakes falling to the ground

Landing there without a sound

You took my hand in yours

And you led me astray

Led me astray.

I should have known when our eyes met

I should have known when our lips colided

I should have known when our skin touched

That you were trouble, trouble

And that you’d ruin me.

The taste of danger on your tongue

Things we did were so wrong.

The static generated through our skin

Electric, Electric.couple kissing

Tideless waters in my lungs

The rumors when I was young

You always had control of me

Hypnotic, hypnotic.

I should have known when our eyes met

I should have known when our lips colided

I should have known when our skin touched

That you were trouble, trouble

And that you’d ruin me.

I should have seen when you didn’t call

I should have realized when I lost it all

I should have known when you broke my heart

That you would vanished, vanished

And that you’d abandon me.

I hear your steps in the snow

I turn around but you are gone

Perhaps this print you left inside

Will melt away

Someday…

Another Fight

Standard

(a poem written two years ago)

Chapped lips

And swollen eyes

A sore throat

And broken ties.

Another fight

Another night

Full of confessions

That I want to hide.

More tears

More sniffles

More fears,

Love wrinkled.

Another poem

Another sad song

To try

To try to move on.

More damaged hearts

More pain

More to bring us apart

Love shamed.

Another regret

Another fact

To break us down

Again.

More sad looks

More silence

More that was took

Love fenced.

Used tissues,

And a running nose

Upset stomachs

And a dying rose.
