Poem of the week
Take Us Back I want to take us back, back to that time and place where love didn’t leave a nasty after taste in the back of our throats Back to that time when love still felt like Fairytale-happy-ending-daydreams, and not this haunted heart horror story we’ve endured Back to unbroken heart days longing for love days the let me count the ways days where I would love someone right But those days have long passed and we each have had more chunks of ourselves bitten off then those who bit could ever chew so they’ve spat out pieces of us here and there Resulting in damage irreparable scars un-fade-able and a fear of trusting love unfathomable I want us to go back to innocence unmarred by knowledge I want to Adam and Eve us all back to the eve of love to the ease of breathing cause we’ve been holding our breaths to avoid the stench of rotted hearts that barely beat for too long I want to eradicate the plague of heart ache because too many of our people have been diagnosed with this disease and the prognosis is never good I want us to regress, unlearn everything we’ve come to know about being with someone, an immaculate, untainted slate if you will so the next time we fall in love will feel like the first time…un-jaded and eager But we can’t go back, we cannot rewind through the stilted images that broadcast across our hearts, we are forced to play through them We can’t color over our hearts in an attempt to conceal and disregard what has already been etched onto us in the hearts equivalent to a permanent marker instead we must wear our un-deviated stories daily, remembering the struggles we’ve endured to better ourselves for the next go round with love We have to cherish every moment we have spent with our hearts so swollen with sorrow over lost love because that’s the only way most people even know it was a love worth anything to them to begin with Everyone takes loved ones for granted at some point making sayings like ‘you never know what you have till it’s gone’ more truthful than probably anything you have said this whole week, month, maybe all year Heartbroken, let us learn not to shield our hearts because we are insecure about showing our scars, no matter how much we may want to go back the only way to heal our brokenness is to move forward
