Poem in 4 lines

It's 6 o'clock
and I check my phone.
Is he online? Yes.
For me? No.

Bits and Pieces VII

I loved you with my whole heart. 
You loved me with your fingertips.

And I hate myself for loving so hard.
For standing out  in the thunder and lightning
for someone who was blind to it all.

Because no matter what I do
You are still in my heart.

I thought you loved me
And my broken pieces too.
I thought your touch could save me.
That your touch was the cure.

Now that I look at myself
I know that that's not true.
So maybe I  do deserve to be burned, 
along with all those bridges,
I’ve so desperately made for you.

My mind keeps saying
'Realize your worth.'
I tell myself,
'I will get through this alone.'

I won't.

   I never wanted anything perfect. 
   Just an ordinary, corrupt
   human Love.

Bits and Pieces VI

I have been screaming for years 
and no one has ever heard me.
They told me:
"Pour your heart into everything that you do"
So I poured
and poured
and poured.
Now I'm running on empty...
Sorry I wasn't enough.
Sorry I was too much.
Some days it hurts a lot.
On others, it hurts a little less.
I know I should crumble for better reasons.
But when I turned, you burned me.
I don't know why that was surprising.
Now all of my skin is peeling.
And that's the tragedy of living.
I want to say
"Don't leave me."
But I can't do it.
Not. Again.
I am so tired of begging people to love me. 


My thanks to thegoodvybe, inkskinned, s0liloquy - It’s ups and downs. (The Story of a Loner), dailyinspirationquotes, Tahereh Mafi, Rupi Kaur and Kristin Hannah for the words.

When you despair 
That I am with you 
That I am near you 
I'm Right There.

And remember
In My universe,
Anything is possible.

So keep believing
That I love you.

Cause I do.

You're too busy to talk to me.
You're too busy to see
waking up every morning
reaching over 
to say 
"Good morning"
"Have a nice day"
and to send you a cyber kiss "Mmuah"
because I can't give you a real one.

It takes me 3 seconds

to type these 3 things.
But you're too busy to answer.
Not even a second to spare,
to say
"I miss you too..."

Come home
So I can love you closer.
You are the best part of my day.
