Central Heterochromia

Posted in Poem, poetry, Trust, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on December 26, 2014 by shatteredbutterfly

My perceptions
have all
been changed now

All my thoughts of you –
used to be light

but they’ve created
such a heavy
weight now

From floating
to sinking

and for the first time
in my mind
doubt has been raised
that someone
is not often
who they portray

I should have looked
two times

It turned out
the light glow
creating that misty haze
I had mistook
For light

Had been surrounding
a deep pit in the center

An all consuming
darkness

I’ve tentatively
walked up towards
your windows
and took a peak inside

What I’ve found is how
what lies behind
an exterior
is the corridor towards
a vastly divergent interior

Oceans Inside

Posted in Love, Poem, Romance with tags , , , , , on September 10, 2014 by shatteredbutterfly

I dream of being wrapped within
the oceans inside of you
To find comfort between
the shore and the wave
a force envelops my body into the undertow
My back pounds into the floor below
As adrenaline rushes through my veins
Close my eyes to the fear
As it rains
Clench my fingers into the wet sand
Knowing exactly where each ocean drop will land
And I know
You’re always in reach of my hands

Lip Service Fee

Posted in Poem with tags , , , , on March 26, 2014 by shatteredbutterfly
The cost of lip service
Could result in
A rapid heartbeat
Dilated eyes
A willingness to trust
Words won’t be wearing a disguise

Be careful with what you want me to hear
Your words have an ability to steer
Emotions into an array of roulette
It’s only a degree of time
That buries you in debt

Lip service always comes at a fee
and it’s victims seem to believe it’s free
