Cold memories

by Michael   Nov 2, 2017


Our bodies-

slowly untwined.

Your body-

became awkward;
speaking in a language
that felt unfamiliar.
I had trouble-
understanding.

The warm intimacy that you
once wrapped me up-in,
started to fade.

Losing its colour
of sensuality.

You felt so distant;
lying right next to me.

you would kiss me-

with surreptitious lips;
that tightly held your secrets,
then, turning a blind eye;
to hide the whites of
your lies.

Lies-

uncovered; revealing
the harsh truth.

It felt like an icy draught;
sweeping through my life,
with sharp icicles that
fell from the ceiling;
penetrating a deep
bluntness right into me.

I was left naked;
shivering with
bitterness

my heart limped-
in my hollow body.

aching with every
beat.

    Being betrayed by someone close to your heart is devastating it can crush you. Not to mention the trust and respect is gone. Thank you for sharing and I hope it is just a poem. Take care and hugs.
