Throwback Friday: Woah, Its Only Tuesday by Liyona

I walked away

From

The ship wrecked

Heart

I gave myself

I said

“Look its not worth your time”

Everyone else

Seems to have it together

And I am always taking a break

So its a paradox

Wanting a full heart

But ripping it from my chest

Its a double edged sword

Those words stated kindly and

Sweetly

Deciving

Me to believe

It was a far away island

I ran

Too far

From the shore line

Assurance is better than

Stability

Love and drugs

Giving breath to sin

Desires so intoxicating

I’m drunk

But not the happy kind

The drunk that wrecks your life

Now a washed up sailor

Who never learned how to swim

Giving, re-living

And I just thought

I was doing okay

Keeping afloat

Never mind the sharks circling

underneath

You aren’t my savior

I’m not yours

But lets touch fingers

In hopes of claiming some

Dignity

That we both deserve.


This is a throwback from 2 years ago. It is interesting to see how my style has changed; I think for the better. But its always good to see where you’ve come. My other poems can be found on the blog The Life and Times of a Quirky Character. Photo by Alessandra Caretto on Unsplash.
