Emmie Untitled Poem #4

Wide eyed
waiting
knife thrusting into heart
safe place
security blanket
question asked
are you walking away?
Denial
can see
can feel
lie
sense it
floating on the air
blending into notes
balanced upon keyboard
melancholy
gritting teeth
not wanting anyone to see
that buried within
heart still beats
given again
to promise to be there
to promise not to hurt
and now…..
Tears
slip over lips
sight clouded
saying good bye
another person
who said
who promised
who swore
to never hurt
leaving again
because
unlovable
undesirable
curl back within
let forth a whimpered roar
turn
head down
walk away
it is easier
to ignore
knife twisting
once emotions are pushed aside.
