Brand new poem! And as always, I’m wanting to hear your thoughts so make sure to leave me some comments below.
This piece is about coming to terms with difficult experiences. I hope you like it.
EMBRACE THE PAIN, IN FACT, BUY IT A DRINK
We all slur love lyrics like bible quotes at a stranger’s funeral,
letting those beautiful words dance in the back of your mind,
where the darkness resides, but creating a spotlight, right?
I don’t write shitty poetry to escape an inner pain,
I write poetry to embrace an inner pain, because it’s all I have.
And fine words come from the finest heartbreak, love.
You are a beautiful disaster, like the rain after a storm.
And you have washed away my being, completely.
I am a rotten, forgotten-about scratch card at the side of the road,
a modern footprint-ridden, worthless backend of a gamble.
And I’ve come to understand, I’m obviously not worth the risk.
I’m obviously not something you’re able to handle.
And you, you’re something else entirely.
You can’t embrace the pain that comes with love.
You tremble in fear and throw away anything good.
Could have been a winning scratch card, you know.
Could have been a beautiful disaster, like the storm.
Could have been something better than the finest heartbreak.
