I am not her

I am not her

She left on that morn

after so many nights

in waiting for your return

After so many moments

of empty kisses

 in silent darkness

Slowly She left

but you where too busy to notice

I am not her

She cuts her wrist

to stop its pulse rate

She blocks her heart

to end its beating

She swollows pills

to hide from consciousness

She wakes from dreams

to kill the memory

I am not her

I am unchained

I am free

I love life

and all that's beautiful

I am not her

I still love butterflies

I still pick daises

and sing in gardens

I still watch rainbows

and paint with colours

I still walk on sunshine

alone,but not in solitude

I am not her

She is gone

She's slowly gone

but you never noticed.


Fiction poem-No wrist cutting and pills and etc etc.. just an inspired poem ..but fiction..No worry to none :)

    Hi Charma :) You've definitely depicted somebody here who is in despair...and yet you have also shown that there is still strength that can be used from deep within to overcome it--you yourself have a wonderful way with words that tell their story...thanks for the fave and smiles and hugs to you! :)

    "I still walk on sunshines/alone,but not in solitude" !! Brilliant! Of course you're not her! Nobody is like you, talented Charmaine! Humm...I think this voice is talking about something that provoked a change in her life...or a discovery, a sudden recognition of their own true identity or nature. Exceptional piece! Ruben.
