Severed

Taking the knife and
Plunging it in
Severing all ties
Past
Present
Future
Separation of heart and
Memories
Fondling my blade
Or is it a pen?
Tap Tap Tap
Scrolling through conversations
Whispers to my heart
Each night growing
Adoringly closer
Deeper
Truer
Somehow wires crossed
Sparks
Ignition
Ugly tears rolling
Realization sets in
Suspicions confirmed
Alone again
Always alone
Reaching forward and
Grasping at just
Anything
Anything at all
Rather feel pain
Than the grey
Anemic
Mundane
Yet still
Pulling at the corner
Tugging
Wrapping back up
In a familiar cocoon
Behind protective layers
That I should’ve kept
To begin with
However
Waiting all my life
Meeting
Attaining
Realizing
Fulfilled place in my heart
Easy and satisfying
Melting to ribbons
Those walls of old
Got scared
Backed away
Hands held out in
Supplication
Please
Hear my cries
Ease this pain
Hold me in your arms
Heal me
Forgive me
Love me
