Graham And Elsa

Poem By Elsa Bear

She wipes a tearful cheek
and scratches at her brown skin.
Unable to speak, she’s locked herself in.
Spindly legs walk a lonely tightrope
in the middle of the city.
Not once did he ever call her pretty.

he's made so many mistakes in life,
and he'll make a thousand more,
he lost her before but this time it'll stick
inside he's become so ugly and distorted
he doesn't even recognise himself

She’s let so many slip by,
losing touch of everyone.
She cracks open a Budweiser,
pain has one.
Her pearl nails are chipped and bitten,
She starts on a poem already unwritten.

he has no more excuses
no more breath to say he's sorry
no more tears to cry.
he's done so much damage
to himself and those around him,
he'll never be fine.

Her Choice, Her Punishment

a product of misery
she barely survived her childhood.
living on the verge of a breakdown
it takes all her energy not to cry everyday.

My Life

i want to be loved
i want to be held.
i want to feel good
and i want to do well.

Dancing Dreams

blank pages stare back at her
a book full of them
feeling uninspired she sits by her window sill
staring at the trees, the houses, the passersby.

Her Home

photos line her walls
posters, pictures, postcards
torn, ripped, cut, stuck.
finally it feels like home.

A Good Night Out

bleary eyed,
fuzzy headed,
mascara stains from the night before.
lipstick smudges,

I Wish

it was all my fault,
i broke my heart as well as his
i hurt as much as he did.
three times.
