To grasp this is impossible.
From words, to sentences. Paragraphs long.
Standing here is earth shattering.
This must be a dream. Or the shadow of one.

Your words. Cruel. Unusual.
Even for you, they were unexpected.
Leave me in the silence. Know I'm not ok.
Don't pretend to care. I know you never did.

Surely the world heard my screams.
And wasnt the shattering unbearably loud?
Leave me in this bitterness.
Know, I am now afraid of everything.

Dealing with these consequences.
Weathering extreme heat.
The burning lingers.
You were too wild for me.

Playing with fire isn't for the weak at heart.
The price high. The risk higher.
I should know.
I touched. I was burned.


The author's comments:
Venting is most definitely an interesting thing. It can bring out the deepest and most hidden things about a person. Such as the dark sides of their lives. Of course my poem was a venting session. Through the pain came one of my favorite pieces.
