I'm Twisted

by Beautiful Chaos   Jul 9, 2018


I'm twisted
Held hostage by my own emotion
Weighed down by the bricks I'm carrying in my stomach
The anger that stitched my heart back together
A sadness that tries to set my soul free from this body
Everyday is a war
A battle between what I know
And what I feel
Consumed by truth
In an anorexic world
Voids filled with sin
In search of purity
Exploited by velvet tongues and lonely eyes
Love based upon surrender
Which, primally, cannot be accepted
Freedom is a thirst
Take my heart
But not my mind
As vexing as it may be at times
That is me
My thoughts
My memories
Pain, frustration, growth
Where love is created
Knots
Twisted around mementos of life
Good and bad

    Those lines. Those lines sum up what everyone has felt or will feel at least a few times in life!

    Loved this whole poem. Like, really loved it.
