Shifting Emotion

By: Anonymous

I thought I truly appreciated you

until I lost you

 

Until your voice became poison

instead of a beautiful siren’s song

Until your eyes became bullets that shot through to the pain in my chest

instead of being my saving grace from the pains the world placed there

Until your words became those that made me bleed

because of the way they used to sound

and how different the things they used to say are from the things they say now

Until your “be safe” quietly began to mean ‘don’t hurt yourself’

instead of ‘don’t do anything stupid enough to get hurt’

Until your arms enveloped her

instead of me

 

I can’t even begin to comprehend the hole inside me

Will it ever be filled?

I yearn to abide in you so you can tell me how good things will turn out

but, honestly

How could I?

 

I thought I truly appreciated you

but now

I wish I would’ve appreciated you more
