“Tormented Love”

 

 She was

missing

him

real

real bad

today

waking up

alone

she puts on

one of his

unwashed hoodies

he mistakenly

left behind,

she knows her

life

is better off

without him

in it

a heart in

constant torment

whenever he

was near

her,

but today

today she needed

him

she needed to

be

held tightly

and told she

mattered

even if they

were

just temporary

lies,

her hand lets

her cell phone

slip through her

slender fingers

momentarily lost

in the waves

of her pink

comforter

debating whether

or not

to rescue it

or just pull

the covers

back over her

head

and hope his

hold on her

will fade

if she sleeps

through most

of the day,

she felt so

strong

that last time

they were together

calling him out

cutting him loose

thinking that

that night

was the beginning

of forever

without him,

she buries her

face

in his hoodie

breathing in

memories

of nights gone

past

she can’t take

another setback

not like the

last time

when

she gave in

and called him

opened the door

to six more

months

of tormented

love

she swore

to herself

it would never

happen again,

but it is just

so easy

to lie

back on her

bed

and think about

that feeling of

fulfillment

he always

brought to

her

a wholeness

that’s been

missing

a feeling

she’s finding

hard to get

past today,

she just

kept

skipping over

all those

footnotes

attached to each

of her

fulfilling nights

with him

the endless

fights

and poisoned

words

that dominated

most of the

time

contained in

their special

moments,

she knows

she shouldn’t

do it

that she can’t

call him

he’s just not

worth it

as she’s still

lying on her

bed

staring at the

fan

on her ceiling

as it slowly

goes

around

and around

while the known

truth

and unbearable

loneliness

tug on opposite

sides

of her heart,

she should

have

never put on

his hoodie

she thinks

as she

reaches in

to the folds

of her pink

comforter

and pulls

out

her phone…
