scar tissue

She said, "Tell me how a person goes on, after." I stared, dumbfounded and in disbelief, as she chuckled at my expression. I didn't find humour in her statement Snapping my response like a bullwhip "You just do, or you don't. A lot of days, you wish you didn't." I mused a moment, counting heartbeats...

Land Mines Masquerading as Wildflowers

It's a consequential downfall To being open-hearted Passion in the field of war Makes pitfalls prominent It's no tiptoe through the land mines Masquerading as wildflowers At times it's more about maintaining silence Rather than slicing Gordian Knot Enter the fool and dance like hell But hell is no place for angels Feathers smolder like...

When the thunder rolls I'm so damned lonely What I really need Is someone to hold Until I can find The silver lining And I can breathe again The snow is falling Like the blind hits, They just keeps coming Grief is always there The past keeps calling Reminds me of you The pain I...

Sweet as a Summer Dream

Sweet as a summer dream, One that wakes me in a sheen of sweat Your name on my lips is as arousing As the love light that fills your eyes When I squeeze you tight to my chest From my lips to yours, Love, you are Mine My Raison d’Etre ©MelanieMcCurdie2017

Cologne

It’s getting late, the moon high in the sky So am I, but not so much that I don’t feel his weight on the bed, so familiar that I time my breath exhaling the soft sigh of relief as he lies down behind me the scent of that horrible cologne that I would endlessly tease... Continue Reading →

THIS IS NOT HAPPENING – YOU DID NOT PROVOKE ME TO LOVE AGAIN AND LEAVE YOU DID NOT MAKE ME LOVE YOU AND PROMISE ME FOREVER THEN LEAVE ME TO DROWN IN THE REALITY OF LIVING A LIFE WITHOUT YOU - THIS CANNOT BE REAL NOT WHEN WE WERE SO CLOSE TO OUR HAPPILY EVER... Continue Reading →

Lately I feel like I've become a burden No matter how often I get told I hear people talking and still - I'm not that difficult to be around self centred enough to want to talk about me for a change maybe how my day is or how’s the weather I feel like I've been... Continue Reading →

Woke up hustling fight fight fight go team worked until the weight of my situation was too heavy to Face with a false smile Goddess, I need air I went outside to scream at the dinos Flip off the Daystar Sink into a chair I miss my green yard But the patio Offers protection To... Continue Reading →

I can hear the neighbors Stomping like wild horses Over my head and it's seems so simple Just not a hard concept But man apparently these people forgot They live in apartments, like the ones under their elephantine feet Things are not rosy They aren't fantastic and no Please don't ask me to talk It's...

I'm sitting here In the dark With my head Under the covers And toes exposed Watching a movie With the earbuds in The kind where everybody screams Eating cheese like a weirdo And I can't help think That it'd be more fun with company ©MelanieMcCurdie

I know what overwhelmed feels like ... It's personalised torture straight from the brain You can't breathe and everything is too close Then it’s too hot – then cold – then hot Sometimes, hands shake and bones creak Your stomach twists and turns along with your heart You don’t want to eat or drink because...

I truly think that the community of man, is not meant to be awake so much We aren’t nocturnal Not by nature or design We are not bats nor bears, so we don’t hibernate. Except by choice or through a divine act; call it a interjection of benevolence from some derelict deity ©MelanieMcCurdie2018    ... Continue Reading →

I went outside again today It was very bright and loud There was fucking snow everywhere but The sun was all sunny MAKE UP YOUR MIND!! All this as the doors to that Wanna be Hoth out there Come closer and closer It caused my chest to freeze up And I started to sweat Because... Continue Reading →

I feel as though we live in a world full of false faces We are forced to wear masks, act is life is hunky dory, She wears a smile so all is sunshine and daisies It's a joke with no punchline. Nobody wants to look past their proboscis and Past the mirror in their eyes... Continue Reading →

It’s a sleepless struggle

I’m tired, and I cannot do more than pace, the bed calls me, but all I’m able to do is walk in agony, battle-sore from the war in my heart Being awake and lonely, alone in a place I hardly recognise away from the one who knows me best The pain makes me vulnerable, especially... Continue Reading →

The burden of truth Proof, whatever you call it It's that temptation to burn Scald your mind with scales It's a weighted feather A sip of gasoline dressed up as cognac They tell you to drink it all down One shot wonder, and you do While the world in your head, Groans, bemoans that same...

She says her name is Munday, blushing on the edge of shy, With her amber highlights flushed, she nearly glows in the ambiance. Gently she lays in my hands As though she were made for them, and maybe she is. How she is loved, Monday quivers,  breathlessly. It sounds like scores of Seraphim She quivers, Just like...

Youth's graceful ballet Supple, kept alive, so often, so quietly It fades, as prancing ponies do It gets wiped away by wrinkles and silver linings And like footprints in the sand We begin life again, older These shrouded smiles Some trapped in memories Rather than photographs in albums Are the faces of ghosts Found in...

Gotta Light?

The flame lights up the shadow thrown by his rakishly cocked fedora as he lights his cigarette with the stylishly dated trench coat firmly belted, the collar up in back “Here’s looking at you schweetheart” He says in a very bad Bogey imitation And I smile, a little giving an eyeroll and shaking my head...
