Musings in Storms

in poetry •  2 months ago 

My poetry is merely a body.
You are the soul in my words.

― Sanober Khan


I obsess over endings,
Empty passions—
And nightly reverberations.

Rain is my inside
Turned out—
My interior landscape.

Sometimes at night
I roll over
And look for you—

But then I remember—

You’re locked
In my dreams,
Where no one
Can hurt you.

But you hurt me, Love—

I forgave you my scars
Tried to heal from wounds
And forget the past..

But you hurt me, Love,
And it’s so damn hard
To forget that.
