April 21st

roses and cracked glass
weeping on the floor.
memories trapped in the sun.
screams suffocated by the moon.

April 22nd

i am bleeding,
broken,
ripping at the seams -
the stitches are right in front of me
but my own trembling hands
push them away
as i am left to sink

I love the imagery in your April 22nd poem! The idea of being able to help yourself but rejecting that help is really interesting, and I especially liked the line "the stiches are right in front of me". Keep up the great work!
And I love the thought of being with you,
or maybe it's the thought of not being so alone.

April 23rd

i bled so much for you
that there is nothing
in my veins.
so with fragile hands,
i fill them with tears and pain
for it's all i have left -
now my lungs breathe sadness
my body moves on sadness
(my heart pumps sadness)

April 24th

i rip blades of grass
from the earth
and flowers from their home.
i uproot trees
and tear handfuls of young stars
away from the sky,
because if i can't grow
then nothing can.

April 25th

green eyes
bleed red
into blue tears
down white cheeks

April 26th

the melody of the cello
echoes around the empty room,
filling the abyss of darkness and lost dreams
with a sense of hope,
giving a reason for light to stream in
from the two rain-stained windows

Wow, you're poems are coming along really well, Star! The imagery in each poem is fantastic. I especially liked the April 12th and 23rd ones - they've got a very chilling feel to them. Also, I love how your latest poem has a sliver of hope in it. <3 Really well done!

April 27th

unwind me;
undo the threads
that keep my body together
rip the seams of my heart
and let everything pour out -
the blood in my veins,
sorry’s kept locked away,
all the flowers that couldn’t bloom,
and the darkness that hides in my corners.
let it all spill out,
and tell me if you still want to stay.

April 28th

flowers blooming in the snow
trees remaining evergreen
the sun staying during the night
the stars singing still in the morning
you loving me

April 29th

something about the way
you said my name
made it sound more like
a goodbye

April 30th

the end was filled
with sunshine and roses,
tears and pain,
stars and moons,
and shattered dreams and bones

it was a sort of bleeding out
