Every Story Has Two Sides

Poem By Jessy Liz

'You changed your look.'

'You changed your mind.'

A nervous laugh..
A tender smile.

'Give back your jacket
Take back my ring
Gave my heart
Took everything'

'You lost that touch..'

'You lost your mind'

Turn around again
Turn back in time

Slamming doors
And slamming names
Scream and shove
Then kiss again

'Pushing you away..'

'Pushing you aside-'

Talk about our fears
Laugh about it for a while

Time has passed
Time has surpassed
Locking doors
Chapter closed at last

And all I have to say..

Is, 'You changed your look.'

'You changed your mind.'

Guess we were
Just passing time.

I flush away these damned mistakes;

Spill them out and watch them fade.

Anything To See You Smile

When Nothing is good enough
But it just doesn't seem right
I know it's not you who won't sleep tonight.
I try to explain it but I know that it's there;

Black Silk Heels

A toast to us,
Another night spent apart.
Liquor and love,
Yeah, you're breaking my heart.


Three last words, her words good-bye:
I love you, please don’t cry.
Walks out the door, slips from the edge
She’s moving on, unsteady breaths.

Tasteless Reality

She’s getting weaker by the minute-
Purging every broken dream.
She’s dying to be perfect-
And she’s going to extremes.


She walks down the hall like she’s walking down a runway
And she smiles- oh, the dreams, oh, the dreams…
She trips on her conscious like it’s tied to her heels
And she sighs because it’s not what it seems.
