Poetry That Speaks Of Love Lost 2

More Poems About Betrayal...

Bloody Avoidance


Hot and dripping in sweat I see sleep in his eyes.
Lost in a nightmare I seek to go inside.
Yet inside are images that haunt a life of lies.
To keep me from knowing, carefully he hides.

Until another spoke words of real pain.
The location where I would leave my sane mind.
The moment their blood began to fall like rain.
When I ran away from becoming one of their kind.

Murder keeps taking my soul on a path.
No clearing for ahead movement until cut away.
Forward nothing to believe in, behind my bloody wrath.
Stuck in nowhere alone, broke, this is all I have today.

This Chaotic Sieve

Life speaks loud of my spiraling sanity.
Out of control my mind creates illusions.
Time after time smashing a new calamity.
Taking hold of all I am adding to my confusion.

For freedom I run to no where.
For the safety of unworthy worms, not fit to live.
Baffled I am nearing a life with out care.
Morals fast passing through this chaotic sieve.

Straight down hill goes all the joy in my life.
Nothing special but the way I look.
I pray for a way out of this strife.
Wanting back the dignity finding them took.

I sit and stare at pictures of them dead.
My need for blood keeps me from going home.
Home my ass, mine is gone by his words, carefully fed.
Knowing what I know, I aimlessly roam.

You will overcome this awful time. I know you don't believe that just now. Take it out on your poetry - your poetry will just get better as will your life!

Thank you for your comment...As the dates on the poems copyright indicate, these poems were written about 4 years ago...and poetry is how I heal so I can state without hesitation that I am doing well and no longer see their blood...The lessons I learned from that period of my life is priceless and I thank The Lord that I am alive, happy, and content. Single also...~lauging~...that it the one thing I have not been able to do...move towards another relationship. Finding my husband and best friend in bed set me back. I will find the right person someday!

Peace and God Bless...Becky Jo

Your poetry is beautiful. Just like I have told my daughter, sometimes the best therapy is to pray and write about it.

This poetry is very moving and full of emotion. Life can sometimes roll the dice a funny way and this happens. I am glad you are getting beyond it. It's a struggle, but life always is anyway. I wish better things for you. :)
