I'll still cover my charms

Stop the clock

Erase the time

Replace the bad with special memories

As you pause my on-going mind

Pull out my teeth

One by one

Stick pins in my heart

As the dead ends of my hair have mournful fun

Circle round my soul

With venom being thrown

Playing a messy game

One I truly know

Refill my bottle

Let me bleed

Break all my bones

While I replay the tattooed scenes

Take away my pain

The hurt you caused

Watch my face change frame

While my drunken mind turns a sober form

Sip on your poison

I’ll cover my charms

Keep on grinning

As I pretend to laugh

Mascara stains my arm

While I drown in the bath

You return home

Feeling a pleasant sound

As my existence becomes loud

I’m in trouble

Because you violently burst my bubble

Let this moment last

Before I again put on my mask

I’ll keep writing with your pen

As I wonder

Does anything last?



    HI SHANNON ~ Thanks for sharing ~ we missed you ! WOW ~ This poem is a more full on attack on the One who burst your BUBBLE ~ and well deserved ! Alas we can't "Stop the Clock" we all have to face the consequences of other's stupid actions and attitudes ! Nothing really lasts ANGEL we just have to learn to swim (and not sink !) with the consequences of the ephemeral society we live in ! I'm 34 and I have spent the last half of my life trying to live in harmony and pleasure with my succession of Lady Friends ~ so far I have NEVER EVER burst a Lady's SACRED BUBBLE and I hope I never will ! Every Blessing ~ Love BRIAN XOX

          Shannon, I thought 'Coffee House' was really good, but I think you stepped up your game and wrote something even better. Can't wait to read that promised third one!
          As for the content, I don't know the guy, but he doesn't deserve you! Remember the doors, another one will open up soon and you'll be happy again!
