You tried

There are some things you can’t blame yourself for

Because you tried and that’s all you can do

Productivity

Productivity is as productivity does

It isn’t easy but it’s with it

If only for the pride and the breathes of peace

Clock Issues

The clock ticks so slowly when all I want is for it to speed up

But it only speeds up when I want it to slow

Distance and Time

Distance.

Time.

Mend these mistakes of mine.

The Mistakes

The mistakes that one had made

Do not define them

It is what they learn from – what they do

That truly matters

Too Fragile To Miss You

I miss you

And I want to tell you.

I want to go back to our routines –

I miss you.

But I’m too fragile

Right now

Still Broken

I am willing, wanting to try again.

You said you loved me

Thought out an engagement.

I know I’m a broken record

because again and again

I reiterated how destroyed and trapped I now am.

I’m not who I was,

I’m no longer whole

I fear I’ll be crushed forever

Unable to trust, love, and care

Tell Me You’re Sorry

Should I wish you good night?

Say good morning?

Ask me how I’ve been

Talk to me late into the evening.

Tell me you miss me,

Tell me you’re sorry (I know I am)

For breaking my heart

Shattering me again and again

I Need Time

You ended it

It doesn’t matter your intentions,

Your reasons,

You ended it.

And it will take some time before I can try again

Your Miscalculations

You think you know me.
You really thought you did.
But you had no ideas off all the struggles through which I’ve been.
I don’t trust easily,
I’ve always withdrawn,
Been afraid to love anyone.
I told you I did, said “I love you”
And look at what’s happened
Like broken pieces just trying to find direction.
You’ve really hurt me this time
You broke up with me.
I did not break up with you.
I may have offered an ultimatum, a choice,
But you said the words
“This isn’t going to work out”
“Goodbye. I’m sorry”
And now you try and come back.
You apologize and say I’m right.
That we should try that you love me
But I’ve heard that one too many times already.
And that trust has been broken
You did break up
You did tear me down
I have to build me up
