Burred and Charred

Blurred and charred,
Time and days went by,
Its only a flash back,
Only a dream,
Within these things,
I see me,
I see my past,
My memories flooding,
The tears I once cried,
The blood I once poured,
The addiction I once fed,
The blades I once stained,
I sit on the floor,
The pain flowing out,
My thoughts pouring,
I remember you,
The way you held me,
The way you laughed,
The way you talked,
The way your eyes changed between blue and green,
The way you still like me,
The way you kissed me that day during band camp,
The way you spun me around,
The way you lifted my face to meet your eyes,
Everything I ever knew about you,
I still love you,
That itself is plain to see,
But you don't care,
You never really did,
I was just a toy,
You played with me till you were done,
That's all you wanted,
Blurred and charred,
My heart and memories,
My life is gone,
My love is dead,
Blurred and charred,
You left me,
Empty.

i quite like this poem. the imagery was very well written. i think itll have more emphasis if you try and break it up more into stanzas, esp where u repeat, "the way you.."

break it up in an abstract sort of way and i think this poem will blow minds :)  kudos to your writing skills

Thanks this one specifically was an anger/longing poem, as well as wrote on personal experience.
