Prose, Random Thoughts, Writings

Not yet

She poised her pen to the paper, ready to bleed all the words out, as if by so doing she would be able to purge all her memories of him. But as soon as she started to think of the words she would write about him and of their love that gone wrong, and about the realities that turned illusions, she realized sheโ€™s not yet ready.

Sheโ€™s not yet ready to let it all go, to let go of him and of their story, to put an end to it. Not yet.

But she knows that next time she will be able to write it all downโ€”she mustโ€”and put a period to this chapter as she would never ever let this be the ending.

    Poised
    Ready to bleed
    Needing to purge

    Memories trapped
    Viscious cycle

    Deep scratches
    Jumping needle

    Never ending
    Ancient memories

    Clutter
    Baggage

    Fear
    Loathing

    Tonight
    As every other

    Pen to paper
    Paper to pen

    Poised
    Ready to bleed
    Needing to purge

    Willing
    Tenative
    Hesitant

    Emotions flooding
    Page staring

    Taunting
    Laughing

    Once again left with only a tear stained title

    Page remaining blank as I slip back into the illusion of “you and I”

    Rough first draft…still need to clean up the spelling errors. Thanks for the inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚
