Final Payback

Poem By Eliana Cordova

Let me hold your hand.
Memories of pain no longer exist,
In our world.
Free from hate and suffering…
And everything that comes in between.
Shadows hide the fear in my eyes,
While the tears of happiness
Gently fall across your cheeks.
Ahead of us is the future,
Filling the marmalade skies above.
We’ll outlive all those souls
Who took away our liberty.
Fate has been cruel,
Here is our final payback…
Let’s escape far away
Where no one but the stars will find us.
Your love protects my sorrow
As I reminisce on the good times.
But I will remain strong
On one condition alone:
After endless nights,
I will always see your face.
Tomorrow.
Promise me, I pray.
These scars on my heart,
Will never leave me.
And neither should you.

Forgotten Suicidal

I’m sorry.
I’m so, so sorry.
For thinking these things
For considering how many pills it would take to kill me for certain...

6 Hours

There is no future, I’ve forgotten my past.
It doesn’t stop me from feeling afraid.
Or cowering in the corner, huddled closely to the blade.
And when you find me in the morning

Dear Mom,

You got what you always wanted.
Power. Control. Possession.
And how does it make you feel?
This is who you are Mom.

Why Do You Do It?

'Why do you do it.'They'll ask.
'I dont know'I would say.
Maybe thats the reason.
Because Im confused.

True Friend

If I had the chance, I’d wish for a friend:
Much greater than I.
Someone who understands the power of speech,
the beauty of one’s own voice,
