    Tryin’ to keep my mind off of you I contemplate the trivial

    Runnin’ thru my days in a haze

    tryin to ignore, pretendin’ I’m unphased

    I’d like to erase you but can’t seem to

    without misplacin’ a piece of myself


    So I’m searching for a cloud, an escape or an old friend

    Remy, to keep me unfocused

    & blurred

    shots to stop the flow of blood leave me concerned

    I’m surprised I still bleed from these lessons

    that have brought me to my knees

    & here I grieve (fight, kick, punch and plead)

    for peace & the means to stand up…


    I’m flush

    these thoughts of you are untamed

    roamin unclaimed from claims of non-existence

    but denial is not meant to help cope

    & acceptance is evasive like chasin pavements

    Skippin’ cracks I try to glue it back together

    Attempts to tether you to oblivion

    leave a black hole I can’t control

    & the next think I know

    nothing is trivial as my thoughts travel back to you

    & I start our cycle over. Again.

    drowning in sweet sorry
    that i might sleep, peacefully
    'til tomorrow.


    surviving a breakup with a lover isn't an easy hill to climb...but we keep trying...coz remy and others can never become a permanent solution to losing a lover, or others.

    THANKS for sharing.
