Burn of Breaking a HeartI want to rememberBurn of Breaking a Heart by Sangeline
How a heart feels--
How it cries when rains falls on
Fire, when sweet whispers are
Snuffed by the wind of my
I want to remember its warm pulse
As it matched mine, as it sought
To unwind the rusted chains
That I had long let bite my
I want to remember the taste
Of being loved, of being
Wanted, because just three
Foolish words could pump me with
The fuel to be even more
Because "want" and "love"--
Those were just items.
Those were pockets of spare change
And the loss at the bottom of a
So I want to remember
The warmth of a heart as it
Cared for me, but all I
Recall is the burn of it being
Crushed between my
Shut UpShut up.Shut Up by Sangeline
Sometimes I wish you'd just
Shut the fuck up.
Just let me take your words,
Your screams, your cries, your
Desolate arguments as this war
With yourself rages on.
I wish you'd just let me
Hold your hand
Instead of a cold blade
Just let me kiss the cracks on
Your soul, and embrace the
Texture, because from those cracks
Spill the brightest lights.
I wish you'd just realize:
You're human. Fucking human. Not
Perfect. Not a porcelain doll,
Or a model or an idol. You're not
Something that can't exist.
You are real.
Please shut up.
Just give me your words,
Just reach out,
Just let me take your hand
Through this shattered mirror
They Found Love in PoisonSomewhere, a boy rolls dice between his handsThey Found Love in Poison by Sangeline
Two bottles of hope, one named "ignorance"
And the other called "need".
He found love
In the rippling reflection of those bottles
as he let them claw despair
From his mind, and replace it with a
Before he could
Drown in the silence.
Elsewhere, a girl paints her face with the mud
Her peers whip her with, stones cracking
Soft skin, bullet - holes in her shadow
Stiching the frayed mask together.
She found love
In the battlefield that dances across
Her wrists, for what bullets could not fix
Before she could
Drown in the screams.
Everywhere is a sea of pills and razors
Potent with hate
Sharpened by loneliness.
Nowhere do those who fill the seas
Glimpse the hands which reach
For those broken skies.
Careless WordsPeople say 'I love you' likeCareless Words by Sangeline
How they say 'hello' and
Like how they scrawl names on
Homework, and toss away yesterday's
Before the crows could
Find out why.
I saw it in her eyes,
Careless rambles from her
Lips, words made of old ink and
Faded paper. Words which couldn't
Fill the face of a dime, even if
She wanted them to.
He felt it in her touch,
Warm at the surface yet
Chilled to the bone,
Each expression getting crumpled and
Cut every time it escaped her.
Because 'I love you' has turned invisible,
Smoke choked by the hurricane of
Repetition, passing on a street
After a killer has had enough of his
But there were days,
So many days,
When he wanted to reach out and
Touch the smoke, breathe in its
Artificial pleasure, return their
Drunken 'hellos' and
'Goodbyes', before they turned
Into coal-kissed skin burned by
It seems the venom of a
Dream is softer.
