Chaos

Chaos

When did this fairytale
become a nightmare?
How did the laughter
disappear into thin air
 
The chain of love
pulled until broken
Words of love
No longer spoken
 
Living in your chaos
Has taken its toll
Which end is up
as I fall into the hole
 
Anger the only emotion
Portrayed
Understanding now
Forever mislaid
 
The gentle heartbeat
Now a pounding in the chest
Anxiety devouring
A life much stressed
 
A diametric relationship 
Opposite ends of the continuum
When all said and done
Little left of the residuum

    This is really good. Many of us can relate to this.

      Thank you. In a strange way that is comforting. Not that you want anyone else to go through it, but you feel less alone 😕

    And a warranty. This speaks from experience. Yes, how love goes out the window when other distractions and/or when love is not real.
