Your haze.

I drank from sadness,
once again.

I couldn’t help myself,
but to taste,
your bittersweet,

You are like heroine,
shooting through my veins,
one taste was enough,
to get me hooked,
on this pain again.

I’m falling back,
into the blank space,
you left in me,
patiently waiting for,
someone to pull me out,
of your toxic haze.

Because I never,
want to drink from sadness,
ever again.

  1. Feeling this. I know from experience all too well this kind of pain. Do you get over it? Not totally but you do move on through life and later in life you don’t think as much of that person but when you do, a twinge happens. For me no it didn’t go away totally but I don’t think of that person anymore or at least once in awhile. Pain gone yes, Fondness remembered. I know there is nothing one can say to get you over this hump but just know there are a lot of people to reach out to.

      • I am not surprised at all to hear about your poetry book, I wish you all the best with your editing, I can only imagine that this is nothing pleasant to do (that’s why I never touch a poem again after I wrote it down). I don’t like to change what I’ve felt during that certain moment in time.
        Would you do me a favor, please? Would you be so kind to send me an email after you’ve successfully published your poetry book and would you please so kind to remember me asking? It would be a great surprise to recieve an email one day that tells me you did it!
        And of course, I’d like to order one copy with (might as well ask for this favor as well) your signature in it, too. That would be absolutely GREAT!! 🙂

      • Don’t worry I will keep you in mind and will send the email when published. Be well. Yes editing can be a pain as it does in some instance change the mood of the poetry. However the only editing I do is grammar and If I can use a better word that means the same. I don’t change the context of the poem if I can avoid it. Still a pain to edit as you are going through your poetry with a fine tooth comb and after awhile the poetry seems to run into each other in your mind…ergo a break.
